I played both at NAMM. The 1086 is "Disturbed" in a little box. Kickin module for sure, but the Ultra XL is by far.....the sexiest high gain tone ever available for the modular stuff. It is absolutely INSANE.

1086

Post by TOStudent » Mon Mar 06, 2006 12:18 am

I can't post clips.
But right now the 1086 is by far my favorite module. (SL,Brwn, Recto)
When I play the other 3 then go to the 1086 I just smile after the first chord. :lol:

IMHO all the modules should have the dual switches like the 1086 it makes it ssssssooo versitile.
I could see using 3 1086 and having 3 complete different sounds.

Oh man, I tried the 1086 today at the store I work at and it's gotta be one of the better sounding preamps. I mean I love em all, but I REALLY like this one. Versitile as hell and incredibly thick sounding. That mid switch knob does make a huge difference and gives it a different feel. To anyone who was thinking about it, if your into high gain tones (whether you like the Dan's tone or not) I highly recommend you try this

RE 1086 Clip

Post by Songman68 » Thu Mar 09, 2006 6:38 pm

Here is a clip I did with my 1086 recently. I am not that sure I like the clip though. But I am posting a link for you guys to hear it though. Keep in mind I have the RM100B with 6L6 power tubes instead of the E34L's.

RE Ultra XL

Post by Songman68 » Thu Mar 09, 2006 6:46 pm

You guys have to realize that Strangeland is endorsed by Randall so he can get stuff that ain't ready to hit the streets yet. Let us know what you think of that module once you get it Strangeland. A clip would be nice too once you get it.

Another Randall endorsement guy here. We can't always get them before the general public. Sometimes we can be one of the first to get em when they come out but that depends on the item. We can be subject to the dreaded order backlog too!
