This is really cool. You are looking at a Vintage 1980's Tom Scholtz Rockman Distortion Generator. Awesome Vintage Tones created by Tom Scholtz.
From The Web:
Though the Distortion can be considered as a extract of the Rockman Sustainor, it has its own personality, and was not designed exactly for the same usage.
It is often said that the DG has a richer sound than the Sustainor, and as a matter of fact, it is more versatile in the complete range of distortion sounds.
The basis of the Distortion Generator is the structure of all the classic Rockman Amp sims:
- Distortion stage
- Cab sim
The DG can be controled with the following sliders, all placed before the distortion:
- The compressor's gain
- A three positions gain switch called "distortion harmonics"
- A bass slider (boost or cut)
- A mid slider (boost only)
- A treble slider (cut only)
The combinations are endless, and allow tweaking the sound from a very subtle bluesy overdrive to the most crazy distortion lead sounds.
The DG has the two circuits created for the Sustainor: the Autoclean and the Phase Notcher, then a classic treble slider (to adjust the DG to the type of amp - PA or guitar amp) and an output volume. There is also a footswitch that will boost the sound by a few dB's, during a solo for example.
The Distortion Generator was introduced in 1987, and was produced at least until the end of 1991.
