Camerock vs Camerica

Post by aside » Mon Sep 09, 2019 4:08 am

Anyone care to weigh in on these two?

I have a Camerock and love it. Wondering if the Camerica differs much tonally, and is worth pursuing.

Rock.

Being on the flip side of this ( have a camerica and never played a camerock) I can tell you that I think it's awesome. Best Marshall sounds, especially higher gain, of any mod I've got so far.

They have essentially the same circuit/tone but Camerock is more tweekable, and can do anything camerica does and a bit more. Camerica however is easier to use.
RM4, RT2/50, RM100, and a mod or 2.

This makes sense, I was hoping they were a little different so I had an excuse to get one.

Thanks guys.

Good to know, thanks for the info. So in essence, the Camerock can do everything the Camerica can, and then some. Seems I can drop that hunt for a Camerica then :D
Good deals with; bduersch, mikegyver, Steven Latch, frodgemo, krok, mr.air, Petrucci, guitarzan, list goes on..

I really like the Atomica in the Axe II and would be interested in trying out the Camerica but you don't see them come available in the used market very often

But is the CCV and Atomica the same amp? If they aren't then I imagine there's some tonal difference. Is the CCV just an Atomica+? I'm curious now.
