    Comments about Randall RD1H Diavlo 1W Tube Guitar Head:

    Distortion ranges from crispy blues to crunch. From 80s hair metal to melodic death metal. It may not have that dark quality found in black metal, but it def satisfies most ppls wants.

    It gets loud enough where you need to yell over it, but its not wimpy by any means. The clearity is there the whole way too.

    The tone knob is Extremely responsive. Goes from muddy thumping bass to super high tight bottom end crunchy.

    There is also a 3 way "mids" selector switch. Between the two, you can get a tone your looking for.

    Youd never guess such good solid tone could come from a small amp and generally stuff geared towards metal heads on a budget tends to be dorky. This is the real deal.

    blows the blackstar ht1mh out of the water

    Comments about Randall RD1H Diavlo 1W Tube Guitar Head:

    I had been looking into the Randall line since the Diavlo and Thrasher series were first announced at NAMM a few years back. I was really excited to get an RD5H but it was on backorder so I decided to go with the RD1H instead and I am extremely glad I did. This amp is pretty straight forward. It has a volume, gain, and tone knob to modify your sound and also comes with the tone shaper switch that allows you to control your mid frequencies by either cutting or boosting them. I plugged it in and let it warm up and within minutes I was able to sculpt a nice punchy metal tone. I mainly bought this amp as I live in an apartment and wanted to do some low volume/silent recording without disturbing anyone. The 1w is perfect for my use and I can use it in the same room as my wife without aggravating her too much! Where this amp really shines is its additional options with the effects loop and simulated ouput/dummy load. The Simulated output allows you to plug straight into an interface without the need of an external cab. I was a little disappointed when I first used the sim'ed output as I felt the warmth and punch really wasn't present but toying with it further I noticed it just needs a little tweaking to get there. I was able to get a really decent tone by upping the volume and turning down the Tone knob to adjust the high end a little bit and remove some of the fuzz. I ended up pairing it with the RG8 cab and it sounds great. Its almost like having a mini 6505 on tap. It also takes effects really well both through the front of the amp and also through the loop which I found to be extremely handy. The only downside is there really is no clean channel which does make sense as it is cost effective and not really geared for that but I find myself wishing it handled the clean side a little better.

      Forget the Lil, Mini et amp. This is the one amp you can get great high gains with or with out mids (excellent tone contol for a Randall) a decent clean at low levels and still hook up to a 4X12 mike the cab and play a stadium. Better than the other "small amps"
