Yeah it was a short honeymoon...this is actually the second M4 that I've owned and its truly a great preamp...I find that I just prefer my Soldano X99 preamp...different stroke for different folks.

I bought mine used and it has EH 12AX7's in all 3 spots...I've always found the EH 12AX7's to be really high gain and not to my tastes at all. I've always preferred the 12AX7-C chinese preamp tubes...they seem to have a lot of top end sparkle and low gain...perhaps I'll give'm a go.

Randall RT2/50 Question

The Randall RT2/50 has three 12AX7's....what are they for and what type of 12AX7's should I use in those 3 positions to get things quiet and have a lot of clean headroom?

FS: VHT 2/50/2

SOLD A few months ago I bought both the VHT 2/50/2 and the 2/90/2. My goal was to A/B them and keep the one that I considered to be the best match for my M4. To my ear the 2/50/2 was more musical and more versatile with the class A or A/B switch...but both amps are awesome...IMO, VHT makes the fine...

I agree with Spiderfingers that V30's sound best with the modular equipment. Over the past few months I've been A/Bing V30's, Greenbacks (G12M) 25 watters, G12T-75's, Heritage G12H30's and the Marshall Vintage speakers...to my ear, the V30's sound best with this cab.

Trade Dual Channel Modules

I've got 2 dual channel modules that I just dont use and I like to trade. I've got an Egnater E-Rect and a EG3/4...they are both mint condition, only a few months old and have less than 2 hours use on them. I'm looking for dual channel SL+ and an SL modules for trade.

According to the Randall Website, the XL cabs are the professional line of cabs and made with 11 ply...the MTS are for the modular stuff and made with the cheaper 7 ply ...my Randall rep told me that the top of the line cabs are the XL cabs.

Why no love for Marshal? Their cabs find themselves on more touring musicians back line than all the other cabs combined. It is true that the back of the newer 1960 cabs are particle board, but that's easy to fix (Mojo music supply)...or just leave them alone, they still sound better than most other 4x12's IMO. but again, I tend to lean towards appreciating the open, airy, dry crunchy tones vs. the woody, compressed, juicy tones. I do think Randall builds a tighter cab that is more compressed and woody sounding...so if thats your preference, the Randall will fit the bill.

But I'll tell you what: I'd put my 1960 Hand Wired Marshall cabinet up against any cab in the world...including Bogner, Orange, Mesa (all of whom I demo'd side by side with the Marshall before I bought it). BTW, the hand-wired cab has a wood back, hand soldered connections and Celestion Heritage series speakers. I bought one BRAND NEW for $950 (these normally retail for a $1200 but you can easily get your dealer to go $1000)...I paid $800 for my Randall XL cab...tell me the Marshall isnt worth an extra $150-$200? Hell, the speakers alone sell for $200 a piece. Like I said, I'll put my hand wired Marshall cab up against any cab in the world and beat it for clarity, punch, build quality, and most importantly, tone.

I'm not sure why Marshall cabs get bad reviews...I avoided them for that reason unitl 6 months ago...now my entire back line is entirely Marshall (a 1960 BV and 1960 BHW). I only use my Randall at home for practice...never gig with it...dont get me wrong the Randall is a fine cab, but for the money, Marshall has better tone IMO...and if you ever try to re-sell your Randall...good luck...I doubt you'll get $300 for it (I've tried to sell mine twice now and cant unload it). The Marshall on the other hand will have a better re-sale value and have a much higher demand if you decide to sell.

Bottom line: I think its a matter or tone preference...if you like a woody, compressed, focused, honky, juicy tone then Randall is the s*&t. If you like airy, crunchy, open, expansive tones then Marshall is the ticket. Different strokes for different folks...tone is so subjective.

I dont have a MOD50, but for EL34 tubes, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Ruby tubes EL34BSTR...very complex mids, sparkly highs and a really big low end (this a big bottle tube that gives more lows)...very snappy, crunchy tube...I just think it sounds awesome in every amp I've ever tried. FWIW, I find the GT...

cabs

I own a Randall RS412XLT and a Marshall 1960BV, and a Marshall 1960 BHW...I used to own a GB G-Flex and 2 Ear Candy Buzz Bombs. The 2x12 cabs just flat cant hold a candle to the 4x12's...they sound like your playing in a sewer tube or something. IMO, 2x12's are a joke for rock music...4x12 with cast...

Abomb, I'm in an ACDC tribute band...I just think the EL34 based 2/50/2 gets a lot closer to an authentic plexi tone with the SL module than the 2/90/2...I agree that I think the 2/90/2 for heavy metal or progressive modern rock would be a good fit...still, the EL34's are great...a lot of hard rocke...
