In an unrelated trade, I picked up a used Randall RD50H Diavlo - and I really liked the sound of it. And, after spending some time with it I found I wanted to make my "downsize purchase" in the form of another Diavlo.
Researching though, I decided I didn't want a 1W or a 5W because they were both 1 channel amps and purpose-built... I read that as limited. Now, I know I can't have everything, but I'd like to have the most options for my money.
Enter the RD20H. I picked this up on Reverb and it should arrive in a few days.
- Power: 20W tube
- Two footswitchable channels (Clean and Overdrive), plus boost
- Two 6L6 power tubes
- Two 12AX7 preamp tubes
- Footswitch included
- Speaker-emulated XLR output
- FX loop
- Dimensions: 19.7" x 9.5" x 8.5"
- Weight: 26.5lb.
- 2014 NAMM Randall Both Demo
I'll push this into my 1x12 cab - it has an Emminence Patriot.
I may end up keeping my RD50H - I may not. I think I need to have the spring reverb looked at. But I'm looking forward to getting this in the house and seeing what it will do. Still probably won't be able to crank it, but it's not 120W anymore and I really do like the tone of the Diavlo.
