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.

  • RX120RH includes 120 watts
  • 2-channels
  • Overdrive channel w/Voicing and Contour control

I have to say I give this a 10 it gives you alot of bang for your buck and when used with a distortion pedal it sounds awesome. It also is very versatile from what I have seen, and mine has held up well for the past couple years, not to mention my friend has this same amp and has gigged with it for years without problems.
I have owned this for about 2 years now and it has held up very well so far, it's very durable and looks good. It is also very loud. It comes with a footswitch that switched channels and turns the reverb on and off, has a headphone out plug and an effects loop input and output (I have personally never used that though).
The quality is up there although I have had a few of the metal corner pieces bend or come off and I had to fix them but they are not hard to fix or even replace (and that's what they are there for anyway to protect the wood and hold it all together). For the price you definately can't go wrong with this amp, it is almost built as well as some amps I have seen for twice the price. My friend has the same amp and has used it for years to play gigs without a problem. The sound is very good but a little deep and the onboard distortion leaves a little to be desired. If you are one of those guys that likes it to have a bite to it you are gonna want a distortion pedal in front of this thing (if you like deep and trudgy sounding stuff like southern metal just like the other guy said it's perfect for that), however if you do that you will find it has an awesome sound and is perfect for almost any type of metal (every type I have thrown at it at least).
Like I said before for the money you can't go wrong. It has decent features, great and loud sound and it is pretty durable (for the past couple years it has held up very well). It's loud and has a good sound to it but it's a little muddy and there isn't enough gain for my taste. If you run a pedal in front of it though it its very versatile.

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.

Comments about Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack:

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.

        Comments about Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack:

        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

        Comments about Randall RX120RH and RX412 Half Stack:

        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.

              As a stand alone amp your looking at a classic rock type amp with plenty of power and volume.I suggest using fx of some kind to spice it up. I run a Digi tech RP1000 multi fx pedal through it and it sounds wicked. Digi tech has killer Amp/cab modeling and with the right recipe of fx I have this Amp sounding like a Peavy or Mesa Boogie, NO JOKE!!. With other types of pedals I can't say you could get the same results, but with Digi Tech Multi FX pedals its unreal how this amp sounds. Without any FX your not looking at a great overall sound. If you get this amp and want to get the best out of it FX are the way to go, I'm a Digi Tech fan so thats what I suggest but ther are many more options. I give Randal a perfect reveiw, this was exactly the amp I wanted for the money I wanted to spend.

                If you are lookin for a solid rock/metal amp and dont have 1000+ to shell out, definately take a look at this one from Randall. I use it in our practice studio and it easily keeps up with our other guitarists marshall without turning it past 6. Doesnt have the most features (most people looking into this type of amp will have pedals for effects anyways) you will ever see but for the cost and what its built for it gets the job done and sounds great.
