OVERVIEW

Classic Randall hi-gain with MIDI programmability.

The Randall V2 Amp Head was developed for the guitarist who likes multiple tone-shaping options. The V2 amplifier head can produce almost any tone you can imagine, using a full tube preamp as well as a classic Randall solid-state preamp. Holding true to hi-gain roots, Randall pushed the boundaries of modern design that has resulted in this original take on hybrid guitar amplification.

A revolutionary new tube-driven MOSFET power section called "Valve-Dynamic" powers the V2 with so much reaction and feel that you would swear it was a full set of power tubes driving the amp. This 12AT7 driven power circuit not only has the feel, but also an accurate frequency response found only in a full tube power section.

I just cannot believe how good this thing is. I got mine and it was broke but....they sent me a new one so about a week later I got it. I plugged it in and went straight for the high gain so I was thinking nothing special then...I hit the eq and WOW!!!!!! It was amazing...I cried it was so beautiful. ALl of my other amps I was using pedals, hah, now I no longer need pedals I just flick it on turn on the eq and ready to SHRED!!! This amp has all the gain a metal head could ever dream about! It also features a standby button, which is good cuz this thing has tons of gain and it squeels sometimes even after u cut off your guitar. I only have to turn it up to about 8 or 9 o clock, very low, can't hear my band over it lol. But I can pull off some of the most amazing solos and pinch harmonics, I really don't know how I have lived without this thing for so long. If it were stolen I'd definatly either buy a new one or hunt that person down. Stop reading this review and BUY IT!! If you have any questions about it you can email me or message me just put something at the headline so I wont think you are spam or anything.

The V2 is filth!!!!

By skip

from Perth, Western Australia

Own a JCM TSL 2000 and a EVH 5150 lll running one through a marshall 1960A and the other through a 1960B and paired up with an ABY. Got the Randall V2 6 months ago and haven't turned the Marshall on since, this V2 eats it. I love switching between the V2 and the EVH and running together as a pair I'm in metal heaven I know it's all personal but this head is a killer, tight, smooth and the EQ does what an EQ should complete tone shifter

this amp is explosive, lots of power and sustain definitely a metal amp! you just need to run a noise gate ns/2 petal through the Fx loop but make sure to run all input/output jacks through the send and return to make it totally silence. before I did that it was squealing, not any more! i keep the eq tone almost the same as with out it but raise the db a little higher so you can punch it on and have a louder stage level

Awesome head!

By SodaCityRocker

I have owned this head for several months, and I enjoy playing it more everyday. It has a ton of power. Even at low volumes, it really puts out. I would recommend this to any serious player in any style. It can be molded to fit almost any tone you are tryin to get with the onboard graphic EQ.

Masterful

This amp is awesome!! It is loud as hell, sounds excellent, the eq section makes all the difference on this head and the density knob is a metal/death players dream. Bottom line is, if your a metal or death metal player then get this amp with a good multi effects or distortion pedal and that's all your ever gonna need even at a professional level. One helpful hint: run this amp through the clean channel!

Pretty Awesome Randall!

By sonicbrutality

from Tampa

I own 2 Amps, a Bogner Uberschall and a Randall V2, both have their matching Cabinets, which on the Randall I prefer the Metal X XL Combo w/ Celestion V30's and G12-75T's X pattern, you get a very scooped mid range heavy push. While I wouldn't put anything over the Uberschall, the Randall is a beast. And for the price of my Uberschall Head you can get a V2 and XL Cab w/ the speaker combo I suggested, and get a monster tone. Be sure to check out the EQ and Parallel FX Loop, slap a noise gate in there, and for a really killer distortion, daisy chain a Boss HM-2 thru the Solid State Channel and you'll get a crazy distortion like Entombed. The V2 Has a TON of tone shaping capabilities, and sounds quite heavy if you tweak it just right. It's made for metal guitar players.

Randall v2

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Amazing. It's got everything you need. The clean is just great, the solid state overdrive is everything like a old plexi marshall. And the tube overdrive was the reason I bought this amp, it screams PanterA and MetallicA. I would recomend this to every metal/ rock guy out there (remember it's also very versatile, can do jazz stuff too). I bought it with a Mesa Recto 2x12 cab. Just awesome

Very Metal!

By Rotten86

from Middletown CT

This amp is amazing! I moded mine with 3 EH 12AX7 tubes and left in the ruby pre-tube in. It sounds amazing and Im also using my old school krankenstien(before they re-did it as the plus) and they sound amazing together on the album! Ive been through a lot of amps, but this just gives me the clean and distortion tones that Ive been looking for. GO BUY IT!

Randall V2

By Kevin-aGD1A

from Tampa Fl

See all my reviews

This thing can really crank out the distortion! I personally like the S.S. Overdrive for rhythm. It seems to have a tighter response, and simply rips! The Tube overdrive channel to me seems to be more of a lead channel for drawn out slow leads, for an all out solo, I would stay with the S.S. The clean is crystal clear, and dark with the mids scooped. It took some playing around, but after spending a couple of hours tweaking the 6 band EQ with the Presence and Density, the thing is what I wanted it to be for the most part. I can take my overdrive and noise gate out of the mix, re-adjust my 10 band EQ for a lead boost on S.S. and it is still as mean as my old amp with all that stuff on it and be quiter when not playing. My only true complaint, is the lack of a reverb on this head, all it needs to thicken up the sound is some reverb and I think I will be set for a little while! P.S. If you are looking at this amp for that "Tube tone", make sure you play test it next to a tube amp, some people will love this amp, and some will not.
