Chuck Schuldiner's Randalls?

Post by Shinozoku » Fri Jun 10, 2011 5:14 pm

Would anybody happen to know what model Randalls Chuck used back in the day? I've heard the Warhead, but I'm not quite sure... I believe he used Randalls before that amp was even released and was using the VS 8100 around the Warhead's era.

I think you're confusing Randall with Roland. I know he used Roland for sometime and hid it behind the Marshall stacks. The marshalls were just for show from what I've heard.

Nah, everywhere says he used Randalls for a while before he got the Valvestate, and his tone is nothing like what you would get out of a Roland IMO. Sounds like the Valvestate clips I've heard (with a DiMarzio X2N of course).

But that's his later tone on like ITP and Symbolic. I think before human (or maybe during Human too) his tone was a bit different, more chunky and growly like a Randall.

I just read his WIKI and it did state that he used Randall early in his career. Look up the amp line for that time era. Wiki doesn't lie, lol

I beg to differ :lol: But I guess I will. Wish me luck!

I think I remember seeing a video where he was using a Randall RG100ES head during a soundcheck or during rehearsal. I'm going to see if I can dig it up.

EDIT: Indeed, it is a Randall RG100ES, heres the video (11 seconds in)

Thanks! I figured that might have been the model he rocked. Now to find one :D
