OVERVIEW

Big, modern sound in an entry-priced package!

This half stack includes the Randall RX Series RX120RH 120W Guitar Amp Head and the Randall RX412 Speaker Cabinet.

Randall's goal was to develop a more affordable guitar amp with the tone of much larger combo amps and stacks. The RX tone circuits deliver a modern Randall tone with plenty of tight lows and enough top-end sizzle to satisfy any metal guitarist.

The RX412 speaker cabinet delivers a sound that rivals the tone and power of much larger, more expensive boxes thanks to its 4 - 12" Jaguar speakers.

i have been playing going on 20 years and have played alot of amps...i have some seen some of the reviews on other sites saying they dont like it....but im sorry for the price this is as good as it comes....it all depends on how u set it up....i like it cause no pedal needed i think...but i like the old sludge sound....and i do not know why on other sites they say they cant get their pinch harmonics to come out or make is squeal very bright........im sorry but if u know how to do em u can do em on any amp its up to the player not the amp i can do em on this rig just fine....and i put it to the test and did a set of them without a pic....and did it just fine.....so if u are looking for a good amp then this is for u hands down!

Okay, this is an honest review based on my experience with this amp which I have owned for going on two years now. Basically the reason I got this particular amp was because I needed a cheap, loud and reliable 4x12 rig that could take pedals. I had just joined a band and I needed something that could keep up with my lead guitarist's Mesa/Boogie pre and power-amp rack gear and marshall 1960 stack rig and, based upon the reviews that I had read prior to my purchase, this half-stack seemed to fit the bill. So does this amp live up to the positive reviews it receives? First, let me just say that if you are looking for a halfway decent metal tone right out of the box there are much better choices than the RX head. In terms of pure tone this amp IN NO WAY compares to even a mediocre tube amp head and it doesn't even come close to matching the high-gain tone of the old 1980's Randall RG ES heads (the one Dimebag, Jimmy Bower, Kirk Windstein and others are known to have used extensively). So if you're in search of the holy grail "Dime tone" don't count on this head to get you anywhere near that ballpark without a lot of help. When I first got this amp I tried using a Line-6 "Uber Metal" pedal played through the amp's clean channel but that didn't seem to do it justice so I ended up purchasing a Digitech RP-1000 unit and finally, after playing with different ways of running the RP unit through the amp, found that I can acheive a wide variety of usable tones simply by running the RP unit through the amp's effects loop, (3 cables) bypassing the amp's nasty, fizzy sounding pre-section and using the RP unit's pre-amps exclusively for all my tones. I keep the RP-1000 set to "mixer" rather than "amp" because running the RP unit on mixer filters out most of the nasty, fizzy noise produced by the amp's power section. The matching cab sold with the RX head is fine. The jags, after a good breaking-in period, perform well enough for most applications. They seem to handle lows pretty well. (The wheels on the cab are a back saver too.) I tune anywhere from a half-step down to drop-A and, using the RP's pre-amp/cab models and semi-parametric EQ, I can dial in a pretty decent tone in just about any tuning. My guitars are an LTD F-400fm, w/EMG 81 pair, tuned to drop-A, an LTD Viper-401fm, w/ EMG 81/85, pair tuned to drop-B and a Fender HSS MIM strat, all stock, tuned a half-step down. All said and done, I believe that I've acheived a set-up with this amp that, with a little help from my RP unit, works for me. I will probably eventually upgrade to a tube head (or try to find an old Randall RG ES head) and maybe replace the speakers in the cab with something a bit nicer but I plan on keeping the RX head as a back-up as it seems to be solidly built and reliable as most solid-state amps tend to be. Bottom line, barring the obvious usefulness of the FX loop, I hate just about everything about the RX head as it comes out of the box including the awful-sounding reverb but, honestly, for the money I paid for this thing, I feel like I've come out ahead in the end. If you're like me and you can't afford to get into collecting "boo-teek" amps you get the best you can afford and you make it work so you can keep on rockin'. Cause in that's what it's all about.

Dead on arrival, Overdrive channel won't work

By Selim

from Honduras

About Me Novice

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack:

The Clean channel works perfectly, when switching to overdrive the volume is very low, even with all the master up.

a rip off if i may say. musiciansfriend won't take responsability for it, so bye bye my money. I certainly won't do business here again. too afraid to loose my money again.

    I needed a new amp for my band, I am the lead and all I had was a line 6 spider 1!! Old right?! And it just didn't feel right running my led Paul custom shop through such a small amp!! (Nothing against line 6!!) this amp delivers everything I needed and wanted! Aside from one little ding on the side of the cabinet that UPS left, I am very satisfied!!!

      I use a VOX studio peddle station, but this rig has such a heavy crunch that I removed the station. This is the first time playing on a Randel amp and now I'm hooked! I just to use Marshell Amps but no longer. Great price and terrific sounds.

      My first halfstack. I have been using a line 6 spider IV15 and i couldnt keep up wih my friends half stack during band practive, so i got this bad boy. Got here in 3 days and i turned it on and i was blown away with the quality. It did take me a few minutes to plug things in and get the impedance correct. I will be using this amp for a while.

          Comments about Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack:

          I haven't gotten the chance to play though this amp yet due to the fact that the speaker cable that I ordered with the stack did not show up the same day the stack showed, so thank you UPS for your excellent "service". This review will be updated with what I think of the stacks sound, but this review is strictly about quality for now
          From what showed up, the amp and cab was handled fine, although the boxes that showed up were beat up a little, the amp and cab were protected well, so who ever wrapped it up gets a plus. The only problem I have as of right now is that when I got the amp head out of the box the face plate, just, fell off. I'm not sure if it's vendor damage or the lack of quality work put in by Randall, because let me mind you that it wasn't screwed in or nailed in, it was GLUED into the head. Besides that everything was constructed fine and I'll update this hopefully soon when I can hear what it sounds like. P.S. this will probably be the last thing I buy from Musicians Friend. Talk about weak service.

            I picked one of these up around Christmas, and it's pretty solid. For the price, it is a phenomenal half stack. The only complaint I have is that I can't quite get the sound I love out of the amp without using pedals, which isn't a big deal, but I'd rather not carry pedals to a gig cause it's just more things to set up. Also, strange to note, but my friend and I both bought one of these, and my cab came with wheels, but his didn't. It doesn't affect the quality of the cab, but it's worth mentioning

            Better than what I expected. Affordable, but you can get a good tone out of it. My band is a technical deathcore. And it can pump the volume and still sound very good. I recommend if you don't feel like dropping 1000 for an amp. I would suggest a distortion pedal for some. Other than that. I love it and I'll use it for a long time.
