Randall Solid State Amplifiers / Randall Cyclone help?
« Last post by Bleedingeye667 on February 12, 2017, 03:34:01 PM »
I found this wonderful amp in a pawn shop and had to have it. Once I got it and hooked it all up, I noticed something quite annoying. With the gain on 1 or above, I get an ungodly squeal that will only go away if I switch to the clean channel. I run  four cable method with a line 6 board, a noise gate in the front and the effects loop. Mind you, this squeal does not happen at lower volumes. I even tried running the direct out into the effects return of my RD45 for a different power source and it still happens. Nothing extreme on my eq either. Can anyone help me out? I play with a guy who uses an RM100 so the issue is rather apparent in a full band setting.

Randall Solid State Amplifiers / Tube replacement rg100g3
« Last post by Shaysterblues on January 14, 2017, 03:13:52 AM »
Hi folks and hello from North Ireland and a newbie here .
Well I'm 48 years off age been playing guitar since 12 ,I've owned more amps over the years from fender to marshall and have never been really happy with any of them accept my little Blackstar ht5r which I really like and still have.
I'm not a heavy metal guy but more Warren Haynes to maybe Richie Blackmore style .
Now my point being I did a trade with a local guy and ended up with a Randall rg100g3 .
Next thing is oh my god what a awesome sounding amp I'm shocked at how a SS amp with one little tube can make this kind of noise.im in love here.
Question is I think the guy had this amp for several years so should I give the amp a fresh tube or if it ain't broke don't fix it type thing but just get a spare tube as backup.also is the tube easy accessable in the amp or a lot of stripping out parts etc .

Randall Tube Amplifiers / Randall Satan tone is ugly
« Last post by freezer27 on January 06, 2017, 11:22:31 AM »
Hi, I recently bought this super and heavy amp but I can't make my sound like the reviews and some records that I found in internet, their sounds are similar but when I connect my stuffs: a Schecter C7, a Dean Razorback with Duncan Dime Distortion and a Crate 4x12 cab, without overdrives, the sound are noisy (not feedback or hiss sound), I connect an ISP Decimator G String for the noise and hiss but the tone is so gritty when I play, I really don't like it, but I watched so many review videos and soundcloud records (even audios from the cameras) and they don't sound like mine (about the tone).

I tested another cab and another guitar but the sound is similar, almost make no difference. Even I've recording with RAW and simulated output and the crispness is there, I've tweaking the amp but the sound stills bad, some extra-saturated and distorted  :-\ :'(

I will export my audios and I will post here.

Suggestions?

Randall Solid State Amplifiers / Are the RG1503 heads still being produced?
« Last post by Johnny Ace on December 31, 2016, 02:56:49 PM »
I see the 100w and 300w versions out there online still.  The 300w is more than I need, plus all the reviews I've read on the 1503 have been glowing... that it's basically an RG100es and an X2 rolled into one.  I haven't heard any such reviews on the RG1003H, which makes me think that it's not voiced as such.

Does anyone know if the 1503H is still in production, and if so where to find one?  I've called stores near me that are listed as authorized Randall retailers, but they've since dropped carrying the line.

Happy New Year everybody!!

General Discussion / Re: RD Amp Head and RD Cab Pairing

The RD45H + RD112-V30 is your perfect match.

General Discussion / RD Amp Head and RD Cab Pairing
« Last post by Shiells on December 26, 2016, 07:58:12 AM »
I have a question about the RD45H (amp head), and it involves the RD112C (speaker cab). I just want to know if they will work well together.

Obviously, I'm not very technically savvy on amp heads and speaker cabs, but to my untrained eye, it looks like you could pair a RD45H with a RD112C, without damaging the speaker or anything else. I think the RD112C will handle the RD45H, because the Celestion Vintage 30 in the RD112C is rated for 55/60 watts.

Another observation I made is that the Peavey 112-6, with its 25 watt Greenback Celestion, will not handle the RD45H.

Am I right?

Thanks!

Get a speaker cable gauge 14 minimum. That should work fine.

My commander head started doing something similar and my buddy found a broken solder joint on one of the resistors.  Replaced it and now it's fine.  There can be many culprits to your situation.  If you are handy around electronics, take a look.  If not, take it for repair.  There's not much to these things.  Usually easy fixes.  Can be a little time consuming to find the issue though.
