    Hello Cedric,

    no I haven't tried it out yet. And to be honest, I'm not going to untill I have the money to buy it! :)

    For now I'll stick with the Soul Glock.

    They haven't started shipping these to the U.S. yet. I am not sure how much they are going to be,but I will be getting the first two in the United States and I will let everyone know when they arrive!

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum even though I'm reading and learning here for a long time.

    I'm using the Heart Rock amp for about two months now and I must say it's the best amp I've ever used. I bought it without trying and heard/used it for the first time on stage. It's an easy amp to use, it has enough power for small and large stages. I use an Alembic SF-2 in the effect loop which can be mixed in the amps signal. That combination makes it almost perfect. The only minor is it's weight.
    After using tube and hybrid amps I don't miss the tube at all.

  11. Hi Manfred, nice to meet you here, outside the safe and sound Alembic Club environment that is ;) In a few days time I'll be a Glock / SF-2 user as well, although I use a Passenger combo. My only contribution to this thread could be to praise the craftsmanship of the fine folks at Glockenklang and the wonderful sounds their products deliver...

    Hey Wilfred, neighbour, how are you?

    You are gonna love it. I was already very pleased with the Glock itself, but with the SF-2 in the effectloop you can easily dial it in. I think that's the same on the Passenger.
    I was using that combination for the first time during a major gig in Amsterdam and had no idea what to expect, I've never been so pleased with my sound. Did you buy a new SF-2?

  13. Hi everybody,
    Just curious what cab you use whith your new heart rock head?
    Glockenklang don't make their Heart-Core box (with 1x15' speaker + 1x10' tweeter) anymore.

    I'v got it and think it was nice to match 1x15' speaker + 1x10' tweeter.

    What cab do they fit with heart rock head now?
    What do you think? :hyper:

    I'm using two 2x10 inch Hevos cabs. They can handle 800W each and have thundering lows. Something I didn't expect from a 2x10" cab. Problem is that these cabs are made here in the Netherlands, here's a link to their site: www.hevos.nl
    There's not much info on the Glockenklang site about the Heart Rock amp. Some specs but no manual or other technical info. I never tried Glockenklang cabs btw.

  15. Nope, I bought it from someone who imported a secondhand example from the USA and couldn't really handle all the tweaking possibilities. Knowing that they aren't easy to find around here and because I'm a tweaker 'pur sang' I was glad to take it off his hands... :smug:
