Gainiac 2

The Gainiac 2 is the latest version of this world famous tube preamp. Now with a more modern sound, and an extra control for the clean channel (separate master volume). And BONUS - more headroom so you get even more gain than ever before!! Featuring the most effective EQ section ever devised, the Gainiac allows over 30dB cut, or "scooping" of the midrange used with the bass (Bottom control) and treble (Top control) as needed by your cabinet. Guitar tones just can't get any heavier. ( In the Gainiac 2, Rocktron has improved the mid scoop on the distortion!) Back off the Scoop control and your sound rolls up into a much fatter, rounder sound. The Gainiac 2 adds three band EQ to the clean sound as well and the clean sound now runs through the tube for more warmth!

Join the legion of Gainiac maniacs and increase the pallete of tones you're stuck with in that combo amp of yours by adding the Gainiac 2 to your setup. The Gainiac is easy to hook up and use.

This thing rules!


from Lubbock TX

Comments about Rocktron Gainiac 2 Guitar Preamp:

Man what an improvement from the first one. I put a Tesla (JJ) tube in it and plug to the effects loop return on a Mesa Boogie single rectifier and it was awesome. I've learned that the gainiac has was better tone when running thru tube power amps.

It has nice distortion, but could use better tonality. Defibately worth it for its price!
