Roland GP-100


Sofar I’ve played with it for only half an hour. It seems far more complicated to operate than my GX-700, and the tone is nowhere near the sparkle of the Rocktron Chameleon, which I got with the Roland as a package deal.
I played with it for a while, but somehow I can’t seem to get the hang of it. Operating this thing is complicated, and doesn’t always seem logical

Therefore: More later; here are some pics:

    I too have both a ROLAND GP-100 and an older ROCKTRON CHAMELEON. I know what you mean about the “sparkle” of the Chameleon. I still find that the GP-100 does very well at clean sounds – maybe not as “clear” as the Chameleon, but certainly musical – with a fatness that isn’t “too” fat … hard to say that one is inherently better than the other… except that the GP-100 has far more effect possibilities. Both are very clean and have stood the test of time somewhat. Honestly, I am currently gigging with a BOSS GT-8, but I may go back to one of these older units as I constantly compare them at home. I bought a Line6 PODHD500 almost two years ago and haven’t taken it out of the house at ALL. I’m finding it particularly hard to come up with sounds suitable for the gig I’m playing with that.

    Just wanted to say I really like your site and will definitely be back!

  • hey very good little web site ya got right here 😉 I use the matching web theme on my own website yet somehow for whatever nutty reasons it would seem to reload quicker on this web site despite the fact that this site contains a lot more material. Are you utilizing any plugins or widgets which speed it up? If you could possibly write about the titles so that I could use them on my web pages so twilight eclipse supporters could watch twilight new moon online trailers and clips more quickly I would be pleased – cheers in advance 🙂

    I just bought one of these dirt cheap off ebay. I’ve read good reviews about them. I’m not sure how to connect to my Mesa combo. do I go through the parrelel loop?

    • McErrick says:

      I’m not quite sure what the way to go is. I tried to connect it like my GX700 (my-live-rig-explained) but I can’t get the loop to work. I can’t understand why anything was changed to the ease-of-use of the GX700. Tube amps are quite forgiving, so just experiment with the connections. good luck, and let me know how it turns out.
