I haven't had a chance to crank it with the band yet but I have tried it loud enough to be heard in the next suburb and it sounds fantastic. Still, as you know, lots of things sound great until you stick them in a full mix.
We're planning on having a hit out at the shed with all our own gear before the next gig (16th Nov at this point). I use the house amp at the rehearsal studio (same business I bought my amp from) which is an RM100 head but the bass player is using a GK which pales in comparison to his MarkBass. I'll have to resurrect my rack to switch the amp too so I have a bit of work to do with the band in attendance. Then I'll know fer shure but I'm expecting big things.

Goddamn Randalls are so ugly. Can't even deal with it.



The Vintage Modern that I've been gushing about was DEAD SILENT with the gain cranked all the way up on the low range channel. It was eerie. Very low noise on the high range channel as well. I'm sure the noise was a big reason why you got a worse impression from the VM you played. My experience was just fantastic, as I can't seem to stop saying.

It's not just that, man. The RM100 shits all over it in every possible way (except weight of course).

So your thinking of giging with only the Randall and no 4x12 to go with it...........Pussy

HNAD, those are pretty cool amps.

Yeah, I am actually. I just need a good stand for it. The sound it puts out is immense. It surprised me a lot.

Yeah I have recently started playing with a new band and I'm running a 20 watt Krank 1980 through a 2x12 with an Eminence GB128 and WGS Reaper HP. Sounds good, sound is dispersed nice and it is less than 1/2 the weight of my normal giging rig. It is loud as hell for how small it is

The closed back hugeness of the Randall really fills it out too. The bass is as tight as ****. My JCM900 combo was very lacklustre until paired with the 1960 but not this thing.

At the gig(s) you play, do you mic your cab(s)? Don't see the need for a 4x12 if this thing is pushing air well...

I do but I'm usually so loud that my sound guy doesn't need to put me through the FoH. I do it so he has the option. I agree though, this thing doesn't really need the 4x12 under it. I was running my JCM900 combo icw the 1960 mainly for tone and ease of getting feedback. The JCM900 is a bit lacklustre without the 1960 but the Randall shits all over it for tone. I'm just going to need to get it off the ground for feedback purposes, the tone for a 2x12 combo is phenomenal.
I actually ran both the Randall and 1960 at rehearsal yesterday and some guy came in and asked if we could turn down a bit because he couldn't hear his TV a mile away.

Yeah. I'll probably make one myself. I want to get it at least 1 ft off the ground and tilted back a bit. I'd like it to be pointing directly at my guitar. I use feedback a lot.

Edit. My new rhythm guitarist has a GH100L and matching cab. The cab is running those shitty Seventy 80 speakers so I'm going to lend him my 1960 until he can upgrade his. The gig on Saturday will be with my old guitarist so I've decide, wtf, I'll use the 1960 as well for that one.

Sweet Cath. Can you post a picture of the back?

If my brother still has his RM50 I might take that off of his hands. I'm going to give him an amp for his studio, least he can do is give me something back. (At least for a good price)

The RM series is pretty flexible. Got to love that.

Sure. I'll take one once I've charged my phone.

I have a feeling I'll be running it with two tubes pulled. I'm gonna have to try it with 6V6's too for shits and giggles. I've got a couple laying around somewhere.
