Hey UG members. I've been playing guitar for about 3 years and I play a Jackson RR3 through a Vox Valvetronix AD100VT. I am thinking about selling my Vox to get a Randall amp, but I'm not sure which one to get. My budget is from $500 - $600 and I play metal (Bullet For My Valentine, Atreyu, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed).

I will mainly be using this amp at home and maybe some small gigs. I was also thinking about getting a SS Randall over the tube Randalls, and was wondering if the SS Randalls take pedals well?

Thanks for your help guys. Again, my budget is $500 - $600 and am wondering which SS Randall amp to get that takes pedals well. Thanks.

i recommend the Randall rg50tc, seriously its a truly excellent amp, the best tube combo for that price range
you are what you is

yea the G3 series takes pedals well. Actually now it's the G3+ series. I still have my RG75 G3 and it is a keeper

Thanks for the responses guys. I noticed that the G3 Plus series contains a tube, but are there any Randall amps that are all Solid State (no hybrids) instead of having that tube power?

it's only 1 pre-amp tube, can't really say it makes it sound like a tube amp but it still sounds well for what it does and you don't have the tube amp maintanence with it

So, I will never have to change the pre-amp tube in it? That's pretty cool. I'll definitely look into them now. One other question: In comparison to my Vox Valvetronix (which people say makes all guitars sound the same), would the Randall G3 Plus series do the same thing?

No, the Valvetronix is a modeling amp with a lot of sounds that model different amps.

The Randall G3+ series are just solid state. Great distortion and very clean cleans, but nothing in between.

If you play anything other than metal, I'd recommend a Randall RG50TC tube combo. It's in your price range and can do almost anything other than jazz.
