||Opinion on Rockefortte amplifiers?|
I had the chance to hear a sound clip of a rockefortte amp and so far its been the closest to the exact sound of Van halens brown sound but for 3 grand , talk about ruining a wet dream. Is there anybody that can perform a mod to get this sound for far less ?

Yes - Doug Roccaforte.
He modded my '73 Super Lead to use his 'higain' 100 watt amp preamp. Not only can it do VH1-2, but does medium and lower gain Marshall crunch/scream better than any other Marshall or Marshall clone I've come across.
Cost? The mod itself was $325 (this was as of October 2001). Got the amp itself off eBay for $800.
There is a Roccaforte-modded Super Lead (same higain mod) on eBay right now with a Buy It Price of $1099... check out http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=894289152

It looks like not everyone is so hot on roccoforte amps, or should i say just roccaforte himself.

Damn, if that stuff is true I might not want to give my money to a hate mongor.

First of all, Im not a hate monger.
AGA threads get blown way out of text, and you need to read the whole intire threads before passing judgement on me.
I have many Asian, Black, hispanic and other friends.
Looks like someone who is hiding behind a PC has a bone to pick with me, and lacks any kind of guts to reveal who he is.
Typical net sniper.

I think your a stand up guy for the most part. However I remember a thread on Harmony Central where both you and Crusty(Crusty Cabs) made racist remarks towards a Johnny Ou(I think thats his name - Asian, over weight, etc). Left me with a bad taste, but more so I felt it was unprofessional.
There's no archives of Harmony Central's messages boards so I can't qoute you at this point and I have no 'bone to pick' with you, but I can see where people would get the impression of racism.
My 2 cents for what it's worth.
