RR-09 Transistor

Post by Luca » Thu May 31, 2012 12:03 pm

I found a black RR-09 for sale and was surprised to see that it has a CV7004 tranny.

I thought these had only OC72's. How do they compare tone-wise?

Thank you!

Here's some info from Captain about CV7004:
The Captain wrote: Purple 'n' blue chicks :party: ....the purple is a hair brighter in the flesh but sunshine ain't so shiny today. CV7004 in the belly. Fresh and clean, not as midrange focused as the recent AC128 Roosters. A little more old school chime than a tubby growl.
and here's about AC128:

If I'm not mistaken, the CV7004 is a mil spec OC45. I've never owned a CV7004 loaded Rooster but I have owned CV7355, OC71, and OC45 Roosters. The CV7355 was a little more modern sounding than the other two and had less background noise. The OC71 and OC45 were pretty damn close to one another. I think that the OC71 had a little bit more vintage mojo going for it but was also a bit noisier than the OC45 (still not too noticeable)...could just be due to slight variances in build, biasing, etc. I definitely liked the OC71 the best but the OC45 was a VERY close second. If the CV7004/OC45 equivalence is any barometer, I would not hesitate at scooping one up.
Peace, Love, and Tits

In the vid above the roosters are from L to R, OC140, orange jacket OC45, and AC128, the original rangie has a yellow jacket OC44 ...... :tu:
