Randall has a good hold on the module world which has been exploding in recent years. They have really put their focus on those amps and the preamp modules but still carried a lot of their good old regular amps as well. This is one of those simple amps that sound like the typical Randall tone.
This amp has a set of preamp tubes in the preamp section and the power section doesn't have power tubes but does have a preamp tube in the power section to help soften the attack and blend the two amp sections. This is an amp that does not have any effects in it. It is not a modeling amp either but just a hybrid of solid state and tube valve
Designed with a simple straight ahead front panel layout, the T2 has a shorter signal path that produces an extremely powerful, punishing tone. A true 3 mode amplifier, the T2 provides an extremely wide range of tones to fit any playing style while seriously catering to those who hunger for gain.

The tone of these amp is pretty decent for what it is. You get three channels one for the clean, one for the crunch channel, and then one for the high gain tone. Te clean tone is pretty good and simple. Nothing spectacular about it. The crunch channel is a good classic rock tone and 80's crunch voicing. This will get you anything from AC/Dc to Motley C Rue. It is a good overall channel for covers and pretty much general music. The third channel is the more modern tone and gets you into the more modern voicing style of music. This is where you would get the modern metal tones and better for down tuned guitars. Overall it is pretty usable amp for what you get tone wise.
You can find these head for right around $599 for a new one. Used ones will fetch for a lot cheaper than that price. These amps are good for the money and have a great tone for the price. Randall is great at getting very usable cheap amps to the budgeted consumer. I would recommend this amp to anyone needing a good amp for gigs and practicing.
Amp is hybrid, but strangely all the channels go on the lights, 3 channels: clean, overdrive and overdrive boost. 400W, equalizer 3 frequencies (ass, medium and treble, very simple settings, this amp goes to the basics: big sound! It's
RANDALL, we get a big sound so easy The manual is clear and simple settings buttons.
This head does not lace, it is perfect for metal, both vintage and modern, by moving the buttons and despite simplicity of adjustment, you will get all different sounds. Even with a guitar with passive pickups, the distortion is fat and powerful, it takes guts.
I for 3 weeks I immediately released the sound I wanted, I am totally satisfied.
I also RANDALL RANDALL WARHEAD and V2, the V2 buttons too, a little difficult to adjust and Warhead despite its aggressiveness, it is the transistor.
With the T2, I found the powerful, bold, aggressiveness, versatility and above all simplicity.
I bought OCCAZ cheap and I would resume the same without hesitation!
Hybrid 400 W! Plugged into a Marshall 1960 Lead in stereo.
Setting simple and effective. It may be the lack of equalizer that would have V2 can help make a cleaner setting.
Very simple you feel immediately the difference in the settings without starting a spin and never manage to master his sound. Attention even when low and do not hesitate to drop because it is very present in standard setting.
I think this is one of the best hybrid amp at the sound quality.
My sound is rather smooth with lots of distortion is very well suited to play death-grindcore.
I use it for 1 year is my first real amp, but playing in a group and on stage I had the opportunity to try some very different and this amp without out really well in sound, strength, power.
It has a very good value for money, obviously because it is a hybrid that goes without saying that in the long term it is much cheaper. I would do this without hesitation or choice may be more for V2 which is slightly more expensive but certainly with the equalizer
