    Man, it's insane how some of you guys here go through amps. One week Mesa, one week Marshall, one week Randall, one week Peavey...



    I started using 1980's Randall RG series amps about three years ago and haven't looked back since. I've dabbled a bit, but Randall is my tone. I'm pretty content with it.

      Sign me up. I have an Rt-30 which is kind of blues/country. I am into metal as well as blues/rock so I have a rat to plug into the clean channel. It is serving me well for my first >100$ amp purchase.

        I've been playing Randall for roughly 20+ years, and in the last year I got on a BAD Mesa kick, and ended up getting rid of all my Randall gear. Oh Well, I'm back!



        I have always Loved the Randall stuff, But needed a change and was finally able to pick-up the Mesa gear, and really loved it especially the Mark IV, but alas I sold it to get my Custom Shop Gutierrez, I will have another one, and I traded my Mark III for the RM100, and I'm all into the Randall gear again.

              I currently own...



              Warhead

              Cyclone

              RG-80es



              Have owned....

              RM-100

              RH-200



              The RH-200 was horrible, but all the others kicked but. The MTS stuff is pretty nice too, but if I were to go the all tube route I would go with mesa or marshall stuff in a heart beat, the randall tone to me will always be their solid state stuff. I think their s.s. sound better than their MTS stuff in my opinion.



              I think the RG-80es has become my GO TO amp lately, its got such a sweet thrash tone, its got the mids of a marshall with the smoothness of a mesa.



              And I use my warhead for that huge chunk sound for "justice" tones, death metal tones and of course pantera tones. I think the warhead is one of the meanest amps out there once you boost it.



              The cyclone is similar to the warhead except its a bit thinner sounding in the mids, it has less warmth to it and overall sounds more s.s. than the warhead. I currently have the cyclone dialed in with alot of upper mid bite for a really aggressive reign in blood tone, and its working really great for that. Its actually the closet I have ever gotten to the reign in blood tone with any amp I have owned.

                I remember the Warhead getting such a bad rap when they were first released to the public (much like Krank). I heard Dimebag apparently rarely used the amp too, and just used his old Randall rg100ht rack setup most of the time.



                I've tried a cyclone though, sounded pretty good to me.



                If i ever buy a Warhead, it'll be the X2 version. I hear they're a bit different than the older ones. Most people prefer them.

                  Have you ever owned a Century 200, Juggernaut? Not the 200II, the original? I keep hearing they're alot better than than the 200II. Wonder if there is any truth to that?

                    I have a little RM20-B with a cap-modded Recto module. It's a fun practice amp, and it records surprisingly well, both mic'd and with the direct output. Would like to try a 1086 module sometime soon.

                      I've got a Randall RG100ES.



                      I bought it and my 6505 went out the door...never had a SS amp that sounded better when crank it. It projects like a mother, and I can only imagine what a boost will do to it.

                        I have a grey carpet rg50-112, sounds very good and has the most sustain I have ever heard from a solid state. I have to boost mine with an sd-1, and I'm thinking I'd like to get a closed back 1x12 for it.

                            No but I've played through one, and I couldnt tell the difference. according to the rep at the time they switched designs said that only the difference besides layout of the eq was fixing some problems with the power section, supposedly the 200s were really unreliable.



                            alot of the Dimebag freaks will tell you the II doesnt sound anything like the original, but I've played them side by side and can tell you with all honestly, I think they sound exactly the same.

                              The second version of the warhead ( not the X2 ) is the same amp as the cyclone. The orginal wahead ( has the powerswitch on the back ) has a much warmer, more feel, and more tube like sound than the cyclone and warhead version 2. The orginal warhead kinda sounds like a heavier version of the RG stuff.
