Our first ever signature amplifier is based directly on the Dirty Channel of Jim Root’s own Rockerverb 100 MKII. The ‘Pics Only’ styling pays homage to his self-confessed love of vintage Orange amps although the sounds within are unmistakably modern. A powerful 3 band EQ and four stages of high gain capture the trademark savage riffing tones that have propelled the Slipknot ace to the status of a contemporary Rock legend. Along with switchable output power and the addition of a valve-driven FX loop, this little head would be a seriously potent addition to anyone’s arsenal. Pair with its matching #4 Jim Root PPC212 cabinet for a compact but menacing half stack.

We’ve never developed a product with an artist before this. With the Jim Root Terror, we’re able to bring the huge tone of Jim’s Rockerverb to everyone.

But damn, what a sound! Truly a thick, fat distortion and still with a beautiful tone.
It’s such a big throaty drive sound that for alt-rock and hard rock, single-coils work remarkably well and open up a wealth of bluesier tones with judicious use of the amp’s onboard EQ and your guitar’s volume control. Despite the livery, one-dimensional this ain’t.
It packs a seriously satisfying crunch that outperforms many more expensive high-gain heads.
There’s something extremely satisfying about dialling through its spectrum of cool rock and blues tones en route to unleashing the fury.
