Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "My First Tube Amp Head!"
Sound: Sound is very subjective because each person has different hearing characteristics and different speaker cabinets. This RT100H head was hooked up to a Crate Flexwave 120W 4X12 cab and it sounded just off-the-chart amazing! The clean channel with the "bright" switch flipped really sounded crisp with no fuzzy feedback or anything else; the OD1 and OD2 channels seemed similar at first, but as I played with the sound and switched humbuckers on my ESP LTD KH-25 (Kirk Hammett 25th anniversary guitar), I finally discovered the differences. OD1 gave me a more classic, warm sound, where OD2 gave me that bone-crunching distortion...but clean and full! It sounded every bit as good as my buddy's B-52 tube head, and even he was pleasantly surprised at how good the Randall sounds. Feature: I mean, it does what you want it to do, has an effects loop (you need to use the Send jack in the effects loop if you need to run your amp into a sound board at a church or school or something, which we discovered with some trial and error), you can switch out the tubes with others to give you different sounds, and the biasing system is easily explained in the instructions and adds a lot of flexibility for an all-tube amp at this price. Huge. And they included a very solidly built foot switch to go between clean, OD1, and OD2. The instructions incorrectly state that the third button switches reverb on and off. It doesn't. The three switches control the three channels...reverb you need to add with the knob on the head, so try to do that ahead of time because out on stage you don't wanna be messing with it. Ease of Use: Randall defines easy to use. The instructions are written well and are kinda funny in a sarcastic sort of way, which I enjoyed. The biasing system is explained perfectly and the amp has everything in the place you'd expect. In short, you can't mess up using it unless you've got issues or are on controlled substances. Quality: This thing is a tank. It's built well and is rather heavy, lending to the quality of the components. The metal grate on the front is very nice indeed, and the foot pedal, as I stated earlier, is solid. Value: You can't get an all-tube amp of THIS quality at this price, period. Randall is setting the bar high and I hope they continue to do so. Also, ZZounds adds a huge amount of value because they price-matched a goofy competitor and even beat the price. The shipping was fast and the unit was not damaged whatsoever. Excellent value! Period. This is not a practice tube amp...you can do a ton with it in your main arsenal. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with them, fortunately. The Wow Factor: The blue lights really get people looking. Very few heads at this price point have a feature like that. Plus, the front grate looks industrial and plain cool. This is a fashionable amp with a soft blue glow, and the tubes look awesome inside. Overall: This was my first amp head purchase, and it's a tube! My buddy has a B-52 100W tube head and the sound is just incredible compared to hybrids or solid-state amps. Sorry guys, I didn't think I'd go for the tube sound, but after hearing the difference between the B-52 and a Marshall hybrid head going through the same speaker cabinet, it was a no-brainer. This Randall head is just sick and has a lot of features, though not as many as some might like (can't please everyone). I'm writing a more details review so I'll use the other sections to elaborate, but overall this was one of the best purchases I've made in my slow guitar career start. The amount of stuff I'm learning is a lot, but it's not overwhelming.

Overall: Iv'e been eying this head for almost over a year now and I finally bought it three weeks ago. First off the crunch, or OD2 channel is phenomenal! I jammed out Van Halen and Shenker for a good 40 minutes before I even remembered there was a high gain channel. The high gain channel is absolutely mind blowing! As soon as you switch to it an extra badass blue LED fires up! This is a much coveted perk for anyone who plays in dark clubs or venues. As for the sound, Randall wasn't lying when they said they give you more gain than anyone really needs. I play heavy thrash metal and only turn the gain up to bout six oklock. Iv'e played peavy's and mesa's of all sorts, all claiming to hold groundbreaking high gain capabilities, but nothing sounds quite like this. It has that super saturated, articulate and ballsy distortion that can be heard on records like Pantera's vulgar display of power, and Arch enemy's wages of sin. The clean channel is pretty decent as well, not the best, but much much better than that of other high gain amps of the sort.
