Crushing heavy-metal thunder for the studio or practice.
The Randall RD40C 40W 1x12" combo amp provides all the spine-crushing tube-driven tone of its bigger brothers, but in a size you can use at home.
It features two footswitchable channels (Clean and Overdrive) with a volume boost, and shared four-band EQ and master volume. Each channel has independent gain controls, and the Overdrive channel has an independent Volume control.
Around the back of the ruggedly constructed combo are dual speaker outputs, control for the spring reverb, an FX loop and the tone complement of two 6L6 power tubes and four 12AX7 preamp tubes.

Comments about Randall RD40C Diavlo 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:
Well let's get to it. The Clean channel on this amp is actually not that bad. A lot of the high gain amps that I have played are not that useable,but this one actually has some musical function to it. It's more like a Marshall where the cleans are not crystal but do sound really good. The Distortion side of the amp is where this thing comes alive. It does not do a good crunch sound to my ears unlike the 45 watt head version. It gets that 80's metal tone pretty well and has good sustain for a 1 X 12. The gain characteristics do not change all that much as it is increased but when the boost is kicked in it really takes on a different sound. I wouldn't say it quite sounds like a Dual Rec,but it is definitely in the ballpark. It is really tight sounding probably due to the closed back design. The EQ is very responsive which I like. It also has a fan on it which I guess is supposed to help with overheating. The inclusion of reverb on this amp is a HUGE plus for me and this thing preforms well on low volumes due to the master volume control. This amp is light years better than the previous model...Thanks Mike Fortin.
