Update; I have spoken to the owner and he said that the fault with it is electrical and it might need new tubes as it sometimes cuts out when it is being played and it has a bit of a crackling sound. Speaker is still working ok. Please be aware that if you purchase this amp you will need to do some work on it to get it running properly. Thanks
Explains their pricing a bit, on with the show!

Rockit are still in Onehunga and they fix up their old amps if you take one in. I sold an ss one to a collector on Facebook for $300. He took it right to them and they repaired the grille cloth, put on new knobs and gave a service inside. This was 2016 and as far as I know they're still going.

I did fire them an email to try get a little more info about it but no luck, if I lived up that way I would definitely bring it in!

It lives! And sounds bloody great!

Rectified Amps here in Wellington gave this a service and re-tube, popped in the new speaker (Fane Medusa 150) and this reverb tank I pulled from an old Alron head:

Can't rate his work highly enough, and very reasonable rates too.

Absolutely digging the sound of this so far, I suspect I might be selling my Vox pretty soon. Plays nicely with my strat (which was almost unusably bright through the Vox) - I think it's also due to the strat being very low output so I can actually turn the volume up on the amp.

Overall I'm stoked with this. Weight is a bit of a hassle but that's the same with the AC15 anyway...

I had a pro champ. SS. Hated it.

When I first bought a motorbike I got a 2-stroke yamaha 250 screamer. Horrible thing. A month later traded it in on a 750. Very similar

I've tried a few old solid state Jansens/Rockit/Alrons, all were pretty harsh but to be fair they were all in hammered condition

Update: due to me absolutely vibing the AC30 it looks like I might need to shift the Rockit soon. PM me if interested, will do a proper post once I have time and an idea of what it's worth
