I may have an opportunity to trade my Orange Rocker 30 112, for this Nomad 212. He's had some Mods done to it, such as : Tone mod, Mud mod, and effects loop mod, all done by our local amp tech Guru. apparently these mods make a great amp in to a really great amp? I really love my Rocker, for rock, but it doesn't delve in to the metalish sound very well... also doesn't have an effects loop. I'm pretty sure I'll trade, but need a little reassurance if anyone can shed some more light, would be helpful.
