Randall Solid State Amplifiers / Re: Randall T2 Volume Problem

That's good to to know man, good news! I'm afraid you were really unlucky having 2 out of 4 preamp tubes faulty in one batch. Personally I always had SS amps (Huges & kettner WARP 7 combo, Randall 1503H etc) to deal with, with 0 issues all these years. The only tube gear I have, is a Mesa Boogie Studio preamp made back in the late 80s (1989 I think), which still has the original factory tubes. I have read in many forums that the preamp tubes have much more life than the amplifier tubes and they might not even need to be replaced never. Truth be told, SS are much more reliable, lighter, cheaper, consistent  and with almost 0 maintenance plus the technology nowadays have done huge steps forward at this field, giving us some really serious options.

As far as I know, it's not assignable. Although it uses midi cable you cannot program it.

I'm afraid you really need an expert to go through the whole circuit, to check all the components, pcb etc. so he can isolate and fix the problem.

Hey man, T2 has 4 (if I remember correct) preamp tubes. Is any of them connected to the loop and maybe gone bad? Just a guess, but also check these tubes as they are more prone to go bad than anything else in there and it's easier to check it yourself (just google how to check preamp tubes).

Randall Tube Amplifiers / Re: Tube Head suggestion: Satan vs. Thrasher

They both sound killer, but I prefer the satan. If you have the chance play them so you can decide what's better for you. You can't go wrong with either of them anyway.

I haven't play rg 100sc or rh 100 g2, but I own a 1503 head about 2 years now and I can assure you that it's monster!! The clean is descent but the two dirty channels are absolute porn! You can play from classic rock to pure metal meltdown and with the help of 150 watt of power you can demolish small houses or kill your bandmates!! :P
Seriously now, the tones out of this ''cheap solidstate'' amp are awesome, the power is more than enough for rehearsals, gigs, jam...
If you find one try it and take it home FOREVA!!!!
