ok so
b4 u guys slaughter me about the spider, its not me
its my moron of a friend
hes stuck between 2 amps, the ones in the title
i realize theres a spider in there but he seems to like it, and i think the randall is a hybrid
i tried to change his mind and tell him to get something else but he wont listen
so at least on of u UG experts should tell him which one to get cos he wont listen to me

ok I have to step in a set the record straight. the randall RG75, the older one, was really just a hot rodded RG60. I used to own an RG60 and I talked to a amp tech who told me that they have the same transormer! only problem is the RG75 overheats and blows up. not sure if this is some new randall with the same name. how old is that randall? its the SS one with the 12ax7 preamp, right?

actually a lot of SS amps have a one 12ax7 preamp tube at the real high voltage plate (low voltage is a fake tube). hybrid = SS power section, tube preamp

and no they dont suck. they are better than a pure SS amp. always.

Why don't you use the searchbar. The pitfalls of the Spider have been repeated ad nauseum on this website.

They are crap amps, why do you want to convince yourself otherwise?

Reviews aren't always reliable. I've seen reviews that said a $150 guitar through a Spider III was better than any other guitar they've played (including Gibsons).
