The Randall RG 10 is very handy. It gave me an excuse to take my guitar on road trips. Great dual rectifier modeling and some nice chorus and delay combo's that you can dial up. Cleans up very well also and it's pretty punchy for it's size. I put batteries in it and stuff it in my backpack for a little outdoor use once in a while. Had mine for a year now and have had no issues.
The effects are quite good with this amp, and I really appreciate the technical genius that must have made an amp like this run. The adjustments for tone and effects are not extensive but are voiced and set up musically so they are very useful. It sounds fine as a practice amp and really good with headphones, but here is the good part: the amp sims sound much better run from the headphone out to the PA so you can use this thing as a direct amp simulator and gig with it. I've done it --it's great. This giant sound and your playing through a square foot cube! Plug in to the mixer and play.
The amp models sound good, and the effects are also pretty nice. You can get a very surprising amount of volume from 2 watts!
For something so small, i'm amazed. I figured when i saw the size on this thing it wouldn't be great for playing in groups, but god was i wrong. This is the first amp i ever bought and it'll be the last small amp i ever buy. i love this thing. The preset tones aren't my favorite, but they're great for practice, and it takes pedals really well. Definitely buy this amp or atleast go to a store and try it out then you will want to buy it. You can keep it in your car and play anywhere at anytime.
Transistor 100 watt head, two named pipes "clean channel" and "overdrive channel" ...
Nevertheless, one could almost give it 3 channels since the Overdrive channel has 2 gain (1 and 2) that are footswitchables ... (great idea).
Otherwise, the front, we find:
-A headphone (just to "help", but hey, it's there!)
A master-general, very effective.
-For the clean, EQ (bass, mid, TREB), reverb level, and a small switch "boost", footswitchable (great idea too), to increase the volume of the clean channel!
-For the overdrive, level, reverb (yes, one per channel!), Contour EQ (bass, mid, TREB), with a small switch "voicing" to dig the mid, and finally gain 1 and 2.
At the rear, the outputs of Practice for speakers, 4 and 8 ohm only, and the effects loop with level one for the send and return for another.
The foot switch, 4 buttons (channel, gain, reverb and clean boost) and metal, solid and robust. Note that the cable, about 5, 6 meters, is completely removable, style Midi cable.
This head is easy to use.
The footswitch is comprehensive and practical.
No need for manual, simply turn the buttons ... and it sounds live, the moment we do not put everything thoroughly!
I do not see how to add in this category ...
For metal, it's perfect! More gain in two potato, certainly, but a gain in the cleat, it gives another voicing, so cold!
The crunch is nice also gain one. It seems that the gain is a british and 2, the "modern" Rican! Yeah! I have not found a very Marshall gain, but hey, it goes well ...
There is a good compression, the palm mutes out "big".
I used it with Ltd. (MH400 and H250), and an Epi Em1 Jackson DK2M ... Anyway! Only with humbuckers!
Some find clean ... not very good personal, I would put the average.
Of course, we can not say it is highly crystalline, but with a chorus (Jacques Meistersinger and / or Boss CE5), it was my business to the required use ...
I used it a year, and again at home.
It was my first amp head size, with his cabinet of the brand, the 212CX!
I think it is one of the best "hi gain" distortion transistor level.
I also liked the fact you can use it at low volume while keeping his big win thanks to a master usually very effective.
A reverb level per channel, that's great! This helps not having to hit depending on usage ... it's a good point.
To quibble, I regret the absence of a "level" for each win in the overdrive channel ... Instead of contour, or other voicing it would have been better ... but this is only my opinion, eh!
It blows a tad high volume! Anyway, when we play ...
The limit value for money is unbeatable for what has been said before!
Repeat the choice, not especially ... We'll always seeking better quality. That said, I was really excited about this amp and have good memories, of which the notice, long after! This amp has really impressed me and has nothing to envy some lamps ... I said cer-tain!
PS: I posted some pictures of mine and others taken from behind the net.

Transistor RH-100 G2
Between a jack, headphone output i facade, an effects loop on the back with rglages effect for the input and output.
Out a direct output
3 channels (clean, crunch, lead)
2 band equalizer (1 for clean - a common for two-channel distortion)
Super simple and intuitive configuration in a few seconds you find the sound
No need for manual
I play mtal / pop, so both the calm of Bruille
I use a 7 string ibanez rg7321 up with a DiMarzio and LTD VB-200 Baritone. Tuning in though.
The sound is gnial, j'tais party to pay me a head lamp type Engl and then I tried the Randall! Bluff is exactly the sound I was looking (for 1 / 4 the price of my budget)
As if the sound is standard, the clumps are moving the bottom of my pants, gave a POTATO. The head is plugged into a 4x12 H & K Warp 7.
Only BMOL: If you change the level of clean channel, you must adjust the channel 2 is the saturated indpendant
I for 1 month
Yes, I had a line6, a warp 7, a laney
I would do this much choice tt

Kirkalx's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Tte transistor amp
- A etween headphone, and a guitar from the front. Drrire there is a footswitch input, another for effects loops (I think), and 2 for connection between the baffles
- Clean: bass, mid, treble, reverb, boost. Overdrive: Gain, bass, mid, treble, reverb. Note that there are two disposable earnings (gain 2 as the most powerful)
- The configuration is very simple, no need for manual rgler Russia.
- Are easily obtained a good sound distortion in clean too, but only one type of sound is "correct", bass and reverb background. But hey, we n'achte not this amp for clean ...
- Playing heavy metal, it fits perfectly.
- I play it with a Dean Dime-o-Flame, the combination is excellent.
- You get a heavy sound frankly, the gain is very powerful, it is not made for country music what.
- The sound that I prefer is obviously that of the saturated channel even if I liked an even heavier ...
- I use it for 8 months I believe, and it suits me very well for my heavy group. I had the chance to norm this amp (head + cabinet) for 200, OCCAZ, and that price, I think I could do better dreaming, the other amps in the m Prices do I necessarly not play in the same court.
