Well I just got a new amp. I ahve been searching around for quite a while for something that would be good for metal and the like. Well after trying several dozen amps over the past few days, I wsa finally narrowed not by my personal preference but by dinero. However, I overcame that problem and got what I feel is a bad ass halfstack that is perfect for what I play.

I ended up getting a killer deal on a mid 90's Randall RG100ES head. It is solid state, but it gives that real nice Dime type grind that I was looking for. Then I got another amazing deal on a Crate built 4X12 cab loaded with Celestion Vintage 30's. Now I am not a huge fan of the V30's, especially with solid state amp heads, but it actually dont sound real bad!

I got the whole rig used so it does need to be cleaned up a bit, but other then that its an amazing setup. Im so pleased. Just thought I'd share in my new half stack excitemnt. lol

Yeah, I need to find a way to make the head look more proportionate to the cab. Im going to start re-doing the head this weekend cause I hate the way it looks. I personally think it tries too hard to be metal. lol. But Im gonna clean it up and take that stupid "metallic" thing off of it and try to restore it back to original; somewhat. But Im about to go record some sound clips and videos of the amp.

And those were dirty clothes. lol

Is that just a super huge head or a very small cab. I can't tell which one is out of whack.

Ok, so I finally got a video clip of my new amp. Yall have to excuse the playing cause I have been sick with laryngitis all week, and Im still learning some new cool stuff about my amp. Oh and my son came in and was playing for a little bit too. lol. Its not the greatest video but its pretty good for now. Its on myspace videos. Heres the link:

Hope yall like it.

EDIT: Oh ahd yeah, its a standard 412 cab, but the head is like an inch over on each side. Its really kinda akward looking. Even more so in person.
#16
I dont know. lol. Thats coming off this weekend. That was one of the reasons I talked them down so damn cheap on it. lol
#17
Well I found out a little more about my amp. Its apparently from the late 80's to early 90's. Supposedly its the same model that Dime used on the albums "Cowboys From Hell" and "The Great Southern Trendkill". I dont know if thats 100% accurate but I do know that it can nail his tones from that era. If that is indeed true then I got me one hell of a deal!!
#18
Man, the rg100es kicks ass, get 2 eq's tho and eq it twice, if u do it once its not bad, but if u eq it twice its unreal, the sound is night and day. The EQ's tighten it up real good. I can nail all the old skool dime tones real well with one eq but with the second one on too u get the huge trendkill sound.

Would I put them in the effects loop? Or one in the loop and one in front of the amp? Or both in front of the amp? How should I do something like that?

EFX loop. And congrats on the buy!

Hell yeah. Dude Im totally f*cking stoked. I just read through tons of websites about Dime's gear and from 1983-1991 and again in 1996 Dime used RG100ES heads!! And apparently they were kind of a limited run later on down the road. So while, yeah, mines not original anymore I still have an amp model that was good enough to be used by Dime!!!
#29
Sora, I know its a bit buzzy. That is somewhat in part from the camera. But its also in part that I need an EQ for it. Im still trying to work out how to EQ it decently without an EQ pedal, so that way when I do get one it will sound even better.

Jimmy, I got a clip up. I think I posted it on here I think. But I'll post some more tomorrow.
#30
I didnt look since i already posted on other page. Sounds CRAZY for $75 head, good job finding that. If i can find one for cheap i wana get one
#31
Yeah, the thing is super loud! And harmonics? Oh my gawd! They are incredible when I turn it up. So far I have only turned it up half way for like a second and it was even on the half wattage mode thing. I am absolutely in love with this thing!!!

And yeah, the guy who sold it to me didnt know anything about it obviously, cause it was ridiculously under priced and I even talked him down farther. lol
