Itís pretty nice but.............
I have been playing guitar for since I was 15, Iím almost 40 now. Iíve had a lot of gear. I have found things I prefer in that time.
Les Pauls with long tenon necks and non drilled bodies. Jumbo frets, duncan JB and APH-1N pickups. I do have a Les Paul with emgís 81x and 85x.
I play rock mostly, AIC, soundgarden, dope, mettalica, megadeth, and I play some lighter bluesy stuff as well.
I like a rig with a lot of nuance, I like my pick attack to change the distortion. I use my volume knob and pick lighter to go from kill to clean on the same channel. The Prophesy wont do that.
It will tear off your face with gain it will clean up a bit but not like a great tube amp. It has all kinds of effects that are very fun and itís fairly intuitive to setup.
I tried to like it, I really did. But at the end of the day I prefer my VHTs ( Fryette these days ) Itís really not a fair comparison between the two, but in the end itís what comes out of the speakers that counts.
I did have an idle curiosity of how it would sound running through a Palmer speaker simulator, Rocktrons speaker sims leave a bit to be desired. But another $1200 on top of the prophesy and you just bought a bogner.
I do have an old made in the US rocktron vendetta that actually sounds very good and even has external bias test points and adjusment, all tube 4 channel, midi controlled, parallel and series effects loops. Very cool. They should remake that one.
