Whats the scoop on these amps, they are tube right? There are so many different models, are some of them good some of them bad? Whats the overall quality of this amp?
#3
I thought it didn't matter.
You did say:

my zoom into my SS crate > 99% of cheap tube combos

Yeah, I think they're tube, but i'm not sure about anything else.

Yes they are all tube. The modules are the preamps which are interchangeable. The head it self comes in either a 6L6 version or a EL36 version.

cheap tube amps as in 4-5 hundred or less. The Zoom cost $300. I think the modules for this thing is 1-2 hundred each alone
#7
The MTS amps arent cheap. The 20w is like $800 without a module.

They are awesome amps, but they can get EXPENSIVE. If you can afford one, I highly suggest it.

How easy is it to swap a module out and put another one in? Like is it feasible to do in the middle of a gig?
#13
I have played valvekings and palaminos at GC and heard many other cheap tube combos online, and I can say I like my Zoom better. I know a guy who has 4 $1000+ jackson/ESP/ibanez guitars and he uses a Zoom 7.1 into a crate SS. It sounded dead on SOAD/Mudvayne/ anything else he played (mostly metalish). If it didn't sound awesome, wouldn't he sell one or two of his guitars and buy a mesa dual rectifier or something?

its really easy to switch the modules, all it is it just 2 thumb screws, go check out the randall website, it gives you all the info you want to know about them

from what i have seen, they are awesome amps, tons of preamp modules to choose from so they are very versatile sound wise, it is also very easy to bias the power tubes

im considering getting one for my next amp

takes less than a minute to swap modules. all the modules are very accurate yet still unique recreations of the amps they model. these amps are NOT cheap. housing alone w/o modules for say a two module 50 watt (RM50, my model) is $1000.

the tone=heaven. ALL tube modeling pretty much. compared to boutique amps, they're pretty reasonably priced. and have nice set of features. but damn do they sound pretty...

No, of course not. He'd do that if he was smart.

SOAD and Mudvayne aren't known for their amazing tone you know.


The MTS series amps are a cool idea. They are however, quite expensive, and I personally think that Egnater did the whole module thing better.

Great amps.
The modules can be changed with an unscrewing of 2 thumb screws, the module removed and the new one put in, the thumb screws screwed up to finger tightness. And then letting the module's tubes warm up.

The modules sound excellent, although I wouldn't suggest listening to the sound clips on the Randall website.
They're not cheap, no. But Very good and Versatile.

The Randall MTS series sounds very nice. I got lucky, though. A friend of mine decided to sell me his RM50B 50W combo amp with three modules for $800 dollars. I currently have an SL+, a Blackface, and a Tweed. You can swap out the amp modules in a couple of seconds.. just unscrew two hand screws, pull it out, put the other one in, and secure the screws. By the way, the clips on the Randall site are completely unreliable and untrue to the amp's tone.

usually the original is better.
especially since egnator is pretty much botique.
