Roland GP-100

Thinking of getting one of these but not tried one. Anyhere have one - Beavis? - Not actually tried one and would be buying one blind so what can I expect?

What sort of tones?

Does it work best with a solidstate power amp?

How do you use yours? Any soundclips?

Hello andy i will reply when i ahve more time i am thinking about this one and i will write a full review and try to get some sound samples on the web. Very Good unit IMHO.

How much are you looking to pay becasue they have gone down in price a bit i think.

I've had a GP 100 for a couple of years. I'm pretty pleased with it overall--it runs a dozen different effects at once and has lots of cool delay/harmony settings. I use it only for effects. The preamp models are pretty accurate, but they are slightly lacking in dynamics. I prefer tubes anyway. My power amp is a Mesa Boogie 20/20, but I think it would be fine with a solid state power amp.

Two negatives:
1) Some of them have a problem with the parameter/number dials. You can turn them forward, but the processor sometimes thinks you are going backward or something. So switching and adjusting things can be a pain (although it isn't complicated). Mine has this problem and it drives me nuts.

2) I think the compressor is terrible. I use a dbx 166a instead.

Other than that, I'd recommend it pretty highly I guess. Happy hunting if you decide to get one.
