Hey,
Just been looking into the Randall RM series and found a head with 3 modules at a decent price. Its the 1086, Brahma and Ultra modules.
Only problem is ... after a little research I found that they are all high gain modules. Sure I love my metal but I do like to use cleans occasionaly to. I've heard the blackface module is awesome ! So I can hopefully find someone who is willing to trade to 1086 for a blackface and use the Brahma for a crunch/rythem channel ?


Anyone had any experiance with these amps or these modules (1086, Braham and Ultra) ?

You know I've had experience with these amps.
The 1086 is versatile, very versatile.
Not sure about the Ultra and Braham though.
Signatures are overrated.

Yeah but I can't keep bothering you about everything :P
I personally don't really dig Donnegan's tone at all but hopefully I will still enjoy the tone of the 1086. I think I'll try and get Blackface - Recto - Bogner so I'll have to do a little trading. So yours seems to be holding up fine ?
How does it sound with a cheap cab (no offence) ?

None taken.
To be honest, a cheap cab doesn't do it justice at all. Mine sounds good, but would be so much more better with a good cab. The 1086 is actually pretty close to the recto module as well, except the recto module has a bit of a bass boost, which isn't really that great. Besides, the 1086 has two different mid sweet options and a gain boost.
The blackface is nice, especially with a chorus pedal. Can get a twangy sound through to a very nice warm sound.
But yeah, out of the modules you listed, I recommend the 1086, blackface, and the XTC.

Ahh it'll cost me more but I guess its good to know that a cheapy won't do justice. I'm thinking of getting a Framus Dragon 4x12 with V30's
I'm heard that it totaly slays mesa and marshall cabs from multiple people.
Yeah I think I'll try and get the blackface - 1086 - XTC
Apparantly the XTC is the best high gain module by far, the blackface youtube demos sounded great and you seem to think highly of the 1086. For $1700 I should have a set up that'll last me a long long time.

The kool thing is that when you and me come to sell our RM's we should make a little cash

Any other input guys ?

Yeah, sure can!
Last I checked there was no difference between the overseas modules and ours. If you're not sure just email Randall's support group though.
