      Comments about Randall RG-80 80W Solid State Guitar Combo:

      this amp is powerful for a 1 x12 solid state. its perfect for hard rock and metal. the controls are oldschool and easy to use. it comes with a channel switch pedal for clean to over drive. yes it doesn't have many functions but it isnt anything a couple of pedals wouldnt solve. this ranges from playing at home to recording to playing on stage. this amp rocks!!

      Comments about Randall RG-80 80W Solid State Guitar Combo:

      I've been comparing my Peavey Bandit, my new Fender Champion 100, and my newest combo, the Randall RG 80. I'll be brief...The Randall and Champion amps both employ what Randall calls Equalization knobs, a fancy name for tone controls, but correct in that each tone knob affects, or "equalizes" the others. Thus, the treble control actively affects the mid and bass controls, and vice versa, so that in order to find the sweet spots in these amps, one must go back and forth, tweaking one knob, then the other, until the tones are "equalized". It's an amplifier equivalent of tuning a floating-bridge Floyd Rose-equipped guitar--it's a bit of a nightmare, and somewhat frustrating. Like an old-school Marshall, it takes some tweaking, and you'd better have a pen and paper handy to schematic out the controls, as well as a place you can crank up the amps for tweaking, particularly the Randall, since it sounds its best at performance volume. Also, once equalized, you can't just change one tone control on the fly, which you might need to do to compensate for differing room acoustics, without altering the other aspects of your tone. This inability was less obvious on the Fender, due to the amp modeling settings, which were, to some extent, pre-tweaked. For not much more money, the Champion 100 gave me a wider variety of tones, effects, and distortions, plus an extra speaker, in the lightest weight cab of the three. So far, however, the Peavey Bandit won my comparison; it sounds great both at home and on stage, the controls act independently of each other, the extra channel, amp modeling switches, gain boost knob, lower wattage setting/damping switches, and Blue Marvel speaker make it the best buy overall. To my ear, only the clean channel on the Randall sounded superior to the Peavey, and the Fender clean was just as good. I'm still experimenting with my RG 80, but so far, I'm a little disappointed.....

        Comments about Randall RG-80 80W Solid State Guitar Combo:

        I purchased one of the amps as soon as they appeared on the showroom floor. I wanted something like a Fender amp but made tough for hard rock and metal. This amp is perfect for hard rock and metal. It has classic controls that are easy to use. Effects pedals sound terrific through this amp. It's loud, aggressive and it does not have a muddy tone at all. It's a keeper. An amp you never want to get rid of. I'm buying another just for taking places. Keeping the one I have as my main hard rock / metal practice amp at home.

        Comments about Randall RG-80 80W Solid State Guitar Combo:

        I bought the RG-80 sight unseen based on a Randall RG 120 I owned in the 1970's, hoping for the same mix of excellent clean tone, power and reliability. While current Randall amps are marketed for their high gain tones, the RG-80 has a fantastic clean tone that has an excellent array of eq shaping controls. The gain structure of the "clean channel" allows the user to dial in everything from huge clean headroom to cranked vintage tube amp sound. The gain structure of the "high gain" channel starts where the first channel leaves off and takes no prisoners. Even at higher gain settings, notes are distinguishable and chords are not muddy. The amp is very responsive to player dynamics.
