Modules:

***Please note, soundclips can be found all over the net for these modules, however I have found, in my opinion, the best sound clips to be at: http://www.bandslink.com/randall.htm

Tweed:

Based on the preamp circuit of a ‘59 Fender® Bassman™. A classic Fender tone with huge bottom end and a nice amount of grit. Great for any Blues and Country tone.

Blackface:

Based on the preamp circuit of a Fender® Blackface Twin™. Legendary Fender clean with biting midrange and sparkling highs. The standard for any style of clean tone.

Deluxe:

Based on the preamp circuit of a Fender® Blackface Deluxe™. Tone that bleeds country music. Great mid-range and top end spank with more bite than the Blackface preamp.

SL+:

Based on the preamp circuit of a hot rodded Marshall® Super Lead. The classic Super Lead circuit with more gain and punch. Covers any classic Zeppelin to modern Zakk tone.

Plexi:

Based on the preamp circuit of a classic Marshall® Plexi. Anything from Page to Angus to Gibbons. The amp that defines the 70’s rock and punk tone.

JTM:

Based on the preamp circuit of a classic Marshall® JTM45. Classic mid-gain tone with huge bottom end and smooth overdrive.

Treadplate:

The tone that defines the modern Nu-Metal sound. Cutting tone with strong low end punch, biting mid-range & sizzling hi-end definition. Covers any modern rock tone.

Ultra:

Extreme hi-gain with tight low end & liquid sustain. This one exemplifies the classic Randall hi-gain tone. Perfect for any classic to modern metal rhythm or lead tone.


Clean:

An extremely warm & fat clean tone. Perfect for the jazz and blues guitarist or any player looking for a smooth, robust, clean sound. Stays clean even at high volumes.


Top Boost:

A clean module with Vox like tone characteristics. Nice chime on the high's with warm low bottom end. Sounds very acoustic like due to reduced mid-range.


XTC:

Based on the preamp circuit of a Bogner® Ecstasy red channel. A great all-around hi-gain tone with good low end and cutting mid-range. This screaming preamp covers any rock & metal tone with ease.


Ultra XL:

A modern version of our trademark hi-gain tone with extreme gain, focused lows and highs, plus a boosted mid-range to really cut through the mix. Perfect for any modern metal rhythm & lead tone.

Signature Modules:

Kirk Hammett:

KH1:

Based on Kirk’s classic clean tones, the voicing of this preamp is based on various clean amps that Kirk has used throughout his illustrious career. A great clean tone for any style, but tailored for rock and metal because it stays clean at higher volumes even with active pickups.

KH2:

Based on Kirk’s signature rhythm tone, the KH2 instantly becomes a classic because of its extreme wide-range of tones. This mid to hi-gain preamp is perfect for any classic rock and metal tone and for that early Metallica rhythm tone.

KH3:

Based on Kirk’s legendary hi-gain lead tone, this preamp takes the KH2 to a higher level of gain and sustain. Utilizing the same tone circuit as the KH2, the KH3 is tailored more for the modern rock and metal guitarist who demands a high level of gain.

Dan Donegan:

1086:

A revolutionary modern hi-gain tone with additional gain & voicing options. This extremely versatile module has a tight pick attack and focused low end. The exclusive Gain and Voicing switches allow this module to cover any classic Plexi to modern Rectifier tones.

George Lynch:

Super V:

A clean module with Vox like characteristics. Nice chime on the highs with warm low bottom end producing a great electric acoustic like tone. Breaks up nice at higher volumes.

Mr. Scary:

The trademark Lynch heavy rhythm & lead tone of the famed Dokken era. A bit tighter with more gain & punch than the Brahma preamp.

Brahma:

The true holy grail of mid to classic hi-gain tone has the classic British roar with signature American tone mods. This is Lynch’s flavor of the classic Plexi tone.

Grail:

Lynch’s modern lead & rhythm tone. A true Rectifier feel with tight low end and cutting mid-range. Great for all Lynch Mob and modern Lynch tones.

The Randall MTS series has a massive modding community. The mods are made to the modules, and can change the tone of your module drastically. I would not reccomend getting modules modified unless you are unhappy with the tone of a specific module, or are looking for a very specific tone.

The forum at mtsforum.grailtone.com is a great place to interact and and ask questions to the modifiers themselves. Most of the modifiers are in the continental United States, however 1 specific modder is located in the Czech Republic.

Here is a list of modifiers and their respective websites:

Dave Friedman: Racksystems http://www.racksystemsltd.com/

Pete Turley: Gigmods http://www.gigmods.com

Anthony: Salvation Mods http://www.soundclick.com/bands/def...m?bandID=909142

Trace Davis: Voodoo Amplification http://www.voodooamps.com/home/

Bruce Egnater: Egnater Amplifiers http://www.egnater.com/

This is what I know for modifiers with actual webpages. The rest can be found on the MTS Grailtone forum.

Yeah i got a few mods but here's what i got:

Brown - No mods just a great brown sound. Not made anymore.

Tweed - Modded by Jaded Faith, It's got a pull knob on the gain to put more gain on tap and the bright switch is now a "spank" switch. When switched on it gets all this spank that a real tweed has it's great. You can go from perfect cleans to Absolute perfect AC/DC sound with the spank switch on and the gain knob pulled love it!

Ultra - Also modded by Jaded, He made it replicate a KT88 Baron Custom. It sounds very close to the videos but it stiill has it's own sound. It's got a tight switch and a mid switch. The tight has 3 options. Middle, for very tight bass, Down for full looser bass, and up for a mix between the two. The Mid switch makes it so when in the up position it has a ton more mids and in the low position it is scooped.

XTC - Nothing special except it has a "home made" bass cap from the last user. I have no clue what he did but he mad a bass cap with some weird components. Looks like a tree lmao.

RM22 - Mmmmmmmmm

Ahh, sounds fun haha.

I'll probably be picking up a Blackface, Ultra XL and XTC if I end up getting an RM100

Any idea what would be the best module to keep my 8-string tight?
