  • Randall Rm50c vs T2C

    Hey guys im trying to pick my ultimate amp. Im on a budget and the one i get will be permanent for me. The Rm50 would be about 200$ more and comes with an ultra and blackface module, i really like the the t2c but i also hear advantages to the rm. Anyone have an opinion or comparison here? Thanks

    Getting in to the Randall RM series of amps has been the best gear decision I ever made. Wish I knew how amazing these amps were years ago.

    The modded modules from Jaidedfaithmods.com are unbelievable. Highly recommended!

        I recently picked up an RM50 combo to replace my Recto halfstack.
        I really like it. Well made amp, with good features (bias points/adjust, power amp controls - resonance and damping, two loops, speaker outs), plus the modular stuff is cool.
        I got 7 modules with mine.

        If you're looking for an 'amp for life' then the MTS series is a good choice. The different pre-amps really do make a difference to the sound, and you can try out different valves in there really easily (6L6 or EL34 for example).
        Stock modules are cheap - they go for about $100-120, plus there are many guys out there who make all kinds - have a look at Salvation Mods' site and soundclips.

        The Blackface is a nice Fender clean sound - no real overdrive available though
        Ultra is OK - good for thrash metal or something, but I prefer the SL+ or Grail modules for high gain.
        I use a Plexi module for my clean sound - had a good sweep on the gain control from clean to crunch and works well with the volume knob.

          Yeah depends if you think you will get bored or not later down the line... with the RM50c you will have the option of buying or trading for new modules or modding existing ones. The T2 and T2c are really nice and give awesome metal, decent rock, and good clean sounds but the RM series will have potential for more versatility. Do you want to set and forget for practice and jams or are you a tweaker and do you easily get bored? =P

            I recently bought a Randall RD50 Diavlo head that I am really digging.According to the guys at Randall,the clean and overdrive channels are based on the "Clean" and "Ultra" MTS modules.Yeah,Randall makes some killer amps.Especially for the money spent.

              Can't speak to the T2C, but I know since I picked up my randall mts rack, I have not GAS'd for another amp. I toyed with the idea of picking up a Splawn, and now Jaded Faith is doing a module based on the quick rod! There's alot of cool stuff out there for MTS!

                    If all you want is a good metal sound and a clean, then you can't go wrong with the T2 or a V2. Get the RM if you need more versatility, which you will probably want down the road...

                          I would say T2 if it is the older 400 watt original version. Otherwise I'd get the RM50

                            Yes, the Randall can totally hang volume wise. The great thing is the my T2 sounds KILLLER at low volumes too.

                              Yeah the T2 series sounds great at low volumes and even better as you crank it. With the RM50 it's going to be like most tube amps and while it may sound decent at low volumes, it's probably too loud for you if the 6505+112 was too loud... though I've never played the Peavey or RM50c...

                              Maybe go sign up at the MTS forums and ask some RM50 owners how well it hangs for practice volumes.
