what's a module :x


a module for a randall amp is like a switchable preamp circuit. you can change them to shape your sound as much as getting a new amp. that is why randall amps are imo the most versatile amps around

I own the 50 watt combo.
Trust me that's a great amp right there. Id get the two channel so i can go from clean to distortion but its still a good amp.

Edit: I'd suggest you get a clean channel then go get a pedal its your best bet if your gonna get that amp.

kylendm!!! i didn't think there was anyone else on UG w/ the same amp model as mine!!! power to ya!! what modules do you own? i have the 'Recto' and 'clean' modules, the 'clean' is good, not the best one out there for cleans, but it sounds good nontheless. the recto module is EXTREMELY versatile, i can dial in so many different tones w/ just adjusting the gain.

i love that amp, sadly it's not working atm and i need to get it sent off to get fixed...

YO! i commented your profile earlier about this lol, weird. but yeah i have the "brown" and "clean" modules. I know what your talking about with the clean and that there is better but its good for what it does. You have the recto??? i was looking in to that is it as really as versatile as everyone's saying. I love mine and hope you get yours fixed

The G3 and MTS are completly different amps. The G3 is pretty much SS except for the 1 tube to drive the mosfets. The MTS is all tube and why a 20 watt with no preamp is more than a 150 watt G3. Ive never tried a SS randall but did like the MTS I tried at a store.

well in my opinion the ss V3 has a far dryer(for lack of a better term) sounding. it is 150 watts ss but i think it has the worst sound of any of the randall amps ive ever played. it still has a nice sound but i think you could get a nicer amp for the money
