Well, I feel your amp has insecurity issues stemming from a childhood spent under the constant and oppressive tutelage of his step-aunt, who dressed him right up to the age of 11 in dresses and frocks. These insecurities manifest themselves in a tendancy towards drunken exess, and after he puked on my carpet for the seventh or so time, I banned him from my house. In short, your amp is a frock-wearing sad excuse for a grown man.

Better?

haha, yeah, this IS a bit out there... Don't worry man, we're usually not this weird, you just caught me at a strange time, i guess.

What kind of stuff are you playing with that amp? Never got my hands on a randal... solid state/tube? What are your thoughts? You could play the ****tiest rig in the world and if you get good sounds out of it, you'll get respected for it, or you could drop $15000 on like the Rack of Death or something and make it sound like crap and get derrided- don;t worry about what WE think.

I'm curious for your thoughts, though. got any sound clips?

dude ibanez man.. i just played a couple of those randall solid state amps yesterday at a store.. I had to pick up new tubes for my marshall and go figure they didn't carry them.. but for being a relatively cheap amp and being solid state.. i thought they had some decent crunch to them... i don't usually use very much distortion.. so its a litle too highg gain for me.. but if i was looking for something half decent for the price i would consider it. and what drew said is right.. find your own tone if you like the sound of a randall solid state then it's a good tone. personally i can't wait to sell my marshall and buy a mesa mark IV.. but they are faily expensive.. keep jamming man

The lead channel on the mark IV KILLS. I have yet to get a really good rhythm tone out of the thing (pretty mushy in the low end, especially with a 7), but I was seriously considering selling my TSL for one the other day... until I just couldn't put down the used Martin 16-series i was playing at the guitar shop i used to frequent back when i lived in the berkshires the other night... Ah well, it's my first acoustic.

relax, 570, I'm just kidding with ya.

Randalls are supposed to be good for high gain metal stuff, so you ought to do just fine.

I never quite got a lead tone i was happy with out of a recto... i mean, there were plenty of good lead sounds in it, just not "mine." The mark, on the other hand... Eh, both good amps, either way, that'd i'd love to own.

570, T' Kanis?
I think if you're happy with your amp, that is all that matters.
If you bought the amp, it was probably for a reason, you liked it.
