    Love the sound of this amp, I keep being really surprised by these Randalls you pick up.

    They're great recording/jamming at home amps, for sure. They definitely don't have the power to keep up with a full band though IMO. I mean, you'll be heard for sure, but it'll be nearly maxed out, and I'm not sure the right frequencies are there to cut through.

    I've been looking into this for a whole bunch of great solid state designs actually - The classic Dime Randalls used on the early albums (RG100ES and Century 200), but mainly for the Marshall 8100. It's such a ridiculously aggressive amp, just with a shitty weak PA. One came through my workshop recently for repair (well, the combo version, but I did used to own the head version) and I ran the fx loop out into my Recto PA, and holy shit man, hoe-lee-shit It was just the most death metal thing you've ever heard.

    So yeah, just gotta iron out a few details, like how to power the damn things (because the PT voltage will have to be less massive than the full-size head since no PA section) then I'll get to makin'!

    I think that's the amp I convinced my mother to buy my brother, or at least the same family (R-something combo). It was veil of maya in a box (pre djent blow-up) which is what he was into. It did modern metal well and on a budget .

    Dude, I'm pretty sure you just found some un-released Pantera song and mimed along to it.

    Fuckin' hell....

    That was great! I even like the "quack", it got me wondering what that amp would sound on similar high gain with single coils...

    I'm currently pondering the Synergy/MTS route so I've been looking at the old Randall Modular stuff. They used to do a four module rack which I'm keeping an eye out for.

    I just saw this Egnater one yesterday...

    I'm not sure if it fits the other modules, but I'm willing to wager they might, as Egnater worked at Randall (and designed the RT2/50).
