Rocktron Widowmaker & Velocity 100 LTD reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the October issue of the magazine features a review of the Widowmaker electric guitar preamp and Velocity 100 LTD rackmount power amp unit from Rocktron. The equipment was delivered for review by Rocktron distributor in Europe, Warwick Distribution.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski:

“Widowmaker was created for the ones exploring the darkest and most dangerous corners of guitar-driven music, thus exceptionally suited for extremely distorted tones. It doesn’t mean, though, that you can’t get clean tones from it!”

“Rocktron Widowmaker is currently one of the most interesting options when it comes to distorted guitar tones, especially for players who prefer analog sound processing. Velocity 100 LTD complements it perfectly.”

“Unlike tube power amps, Velocity 100 LTD dose not distort the sound at high volumes, which will be particularly appreciated by guitarists using clean settings.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
