« 1 watt - but it's AWESOME! »Published on 11/08/13 at 12:12
2 x 12AX7 preamp tubes
1 x 12AU7 power amp tube
1 gain / 1 tone / 1 volume
1 effects loop - 1 XLR emulation output
It's über-easy to use.
Do note that the 3-way switch allows you to use 3 different equalizations. (a sort of contour or presence) - Rock / Lead / Metal. Sound changes quite significantly.
The tone is effective but really usable starting from 50%.
I'd say it isn't made for clean sounds, it's for crunch sounds at the least.
I play mainly metal, sometimes rock and even a bit of blues.
Let me be clear and brief: This amp astonished me, after my ENGL Savage tube amp head, I had never been in such awe. This amp made for home (1 watt), has a killer sound. I plugged it to a 2x12, and it sounds wicked, with a somewhat dirty Crunch, just the way I like it, and with a metal distortion that 's jaw-dropping.
I was looking for an amp for home use and I found it!! TUBE SOUND at low volumes.
I love it.
I recommend this amp to anybody, except for clean sounds. (and obviously to play at home).
FYI, I tried out an Orange micro terror ...and it's not that "terrific", except for its name, lol...There's no comparison, the Randall is clearly better...and I don't work at Randall
