  • The Randall MTS thread.

    Post reviews, clips, trades, etc. We all know the clips on the Randall site leave something to be desired.

    I have the TWEED and SL+ modules in my RM50 combo. The TWEED has a stellar clean with the gain at 9 o'clock and below, and can get really gritty up past that. I use the TWEED and my strat (neck pickup) for all my clean sounds, and I'm 100% happy with it.

    I had the PLEXI module, but traded it in for the SL+ due to it having more gain. I like the SL+, but am not completely sure it's the hi gain sound I want. I'm actually looking for a RECTO if someone would like to trade. I'm also wondering how much gain the XTC has, and if someone could post clips.

    Here are some clips I've posted with the TWEED and PLEXI modules:

    Clip 1 (TWEED): www.aepoc.com/RMclip1.mp3
    C-1 Elite, burstbucker pro's. Neck pickup. Vol and tone max. Gain 9 o'clock, bass full, mid 1 o'clock, treble 1 o'clock, bright ON. No pedals. SM57 mic'd off-center, pointed at cone. V30 speaker. Avatar 2x12 cab.

    Clip 2 (TWEED): www.aepoc.com/RMclip2.mp3
    C-1 Elite, burstbucker pro's. Bridge pickup. Vol and tone max. Gain 9 o'clock, bass full, mid 1 o'clock, treble 1 o'clock, bright ON. Maxon OD9 in front (drive 12 o'clock, volume 12 o'clock, tone 1 o'clock). SM57 mic'd off-center, pointed at edge of speaker. V30 speaker. Avatar 2x12 cab.

    Clip 3 (PLEXI): http://www.aepoc.com/RMclip3.mp3
    C-1 Elite, burstbucker pro's. Neck pickup, vol and tone at max. Gain 3 o'clock, bass 4 o'clock, mid max, treb 12 o'clock. Bright switch ON.

    At 8 seconds: Pickup change from neck, to bridge.
    At 57 seconds: Line 6 delay turned on, along with Maxon OD9 (drive 12 o'clock, volume 12 o'clock, tone 1 o'clock).
    At 15, NBC's chime, followed by feedback.

    SM57 mic'd off-center, pointed at edge of speaker. V30 speaker. Avatar 2x12 cab.


    Clip 4 (PLEXI): http://www.aepoc.com/RMclip4.mp3
    C-1 Elite, burstbucker pro's. Neck pickup, vol and tone at max. Gain max, bass 4 o'clock, mid max, treb 12 o'clock. Bright switch ON. SM57 mic'd off-center, pointed at edge of speaker. V30 speaker. Avatar 2x12 cab.

    Clip 5 (PLEXI):
    http://www.aepoc.com/RMclip5.mp3
    C-1 Elite, burstbucker pro's. Neck pickup, vol and tone at max. Gain max, bass 4 o'clock, mid max, treb 12 o'clock. Bright switch ON. Maxon OD9 (drive 12 o'clock, volume 12 o'clock, tone 1 o'clock). SM57 mic'd off-center, pointed at edge of speaker. V30 speaker. Avatar 2x12 cab. (First riff is Scorpions - Alien Nation, I butchered it).

    Clip 6 (PLEXI):
    http://www.aepoc.com/RMclip6.mp3

    Strat, neck pickup. Vol and tone max. Gain 9 o'clock, bass full, mid 1 o'clock, treble 1 o'clock, bright ON. No pedals. SM57 mic'd off-center, pointed at cone. V30 speaker. Avatar 2x12 cab. **Along with noise reduction, slight EQing done, slightly boosted 400hz, 800hz, 1.6kHz (one notch) via BOSS GE-7**

    Clip 7 (TWEED)

          Mine sounds marvelous! I do get some strange low end flub when I crank the gain and bass too high on my XTC module, but I am running a 212 cabinet as well.
          The XTC module to me is really voiced towards the plexi module with boatloads more gain. By far my favorite high gain module!
          I do have an ultra lead module I'm looking to unload. Very minimal playing time. It's been phased out of my rig by the XTC module!

            Hmmm, so I should find someone to trade my SL+ for the XTC. That'd be SPLENDID. Can you put any clips up of that XTC? I thin the ULTRA would be too much for me.

              Actually the ultra lead isn't too bad. Of course I'm talking about this from the standpoint of a parker fly which has lower output pickups in it than most guitars. Sorry man, I don't have the ability to make clips and our bands last CD was recorded shortly before I switched to the MTS gear so I can't post that either... The whole CD was done with a XXX.

                Nuts.

                I'm wondering if an XTC or a Recto would be better for me. CLIPS!??!?!?!

                  I've got the Recto module. But Randall still has my amp and I'm dying because of it.

                            Where's the best place to find the XTC module? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

                              I'll trade my SL+ for a recto module. MAY consider trading my xtc for a recto as well. That would be a tougher decision, but what the hell, right?!
