Well ive been running thru a randall rh200 sc g2 thru a seismic 4x12 and 2x12 ext cab and i was wowed buy the rig before joining my new band
this is where the amp really came to life but at the same time really showed where it was lacking for head room in a big way.....my drummer is LOUD and i was over powerd at 200 wats Twisted Evil a very good and a very bad thing, Any way while at a jam with a buddy i hooked in to a speaker that was not hooked up right and i ended up poping the head i am still hoping to fix it and keep it for recording and home use its tone is unlike any amp ive owned and its a great loss to me Crying or Very sad ha any way its still under powerd for what im doing now and ive been hunting and hunting for new heads i even came acros a diamond nitrox for 1000.00 but it sounds like someone farted at highgain caned it and sold it to diamond amps and thats how i would sum up the diamond Laughing its just not enough power and the sound was not there for me at all. so back to randall i came and i got a chance to check out an old T2 at my buds place and i was slamed so i just orderd my new T2 and i am really looking forward to this new upgrade but i gota say my Rh200 will hold a place of honor in my life

Good F#@KEN JOB RANDALL Twisted Evil

And thats what brings me to the randall forum, I hope to keep seeing some cool things from randall METAL MUST DESTORY and theres nothing out there thats better for that job than a god dammed RANDALL

HA thats a laugh Laughing really ive been trying to deal with randall on my rh200 with nothing to show for it....

and this T2 is to far gone so im getting a refund and ive sent my rh200 in to a pro tech in edmonton....very cool guy named Chuck from C4 audio works, he told me to lose the randall t2 and go with the diamond

so im going to retube it and see what it can do Wink

its to bad i really wanted that T2, but i talked with a few owners about there T2s and the list of repaires they needed to go thru it sounds like theres some real issues with some of them. mine would just smell hot than volume drop, once opened there where 2 fuses in the wroung way
it just volume drops and goes into protect mode and wount work...not cool while on stage RANDALL Evil or Very Mad fixed it and it did it again so theres some real demons in this amp and it will cost more in lebour to fix it than its worth..... Rolling Eyes

s*&t!!!
Sorry to hear that Seismic.
You shouldn't be having so much trouble with your amp. Chinese made s*&t is like that though. You never can tell if the build quality is going to be fully up to par. If you bought it new and it's still under warranty, I would bitch at them until something gives. Have you talked to Kevin Drury@ Randall? He has been a huge help for me and has hooked me up with stuff even though my RM100 is past warranty. If it was fixed and it did it again, I seriously question the cred of the tech that fixed it. We are talking solid state power right? Should be a pretty simple affair. Smells hot and power cuts out...Sounds like the power transformer. Do you have schematics for this amp?

it is so hard to trouble shoot on a forum, there could be so many things wrong with any particular rig. randall didn't get it's reputation by selling garbage amps, sometimes user error plays a big part. i'm not taking any shots at anyone, just saying. the v2/t2 amps are very reliable, as mentioned, they are solid state power section. not a very problematic amplifier setup.

@ seismic......you already praised randall and the rh200, so you know they make good stuff. also, u make no mention of what cab u are using or what ohms your running on the cab. again, i'm not taking any shots at you, just saying. i would have addressed the place you bought it from, and get all over randall, i'm sure they'll stand by their product.

good luck!!! (don't settle for the diamond)

That's great advice, Ryan. Check to make sure you are running the right ohm setting for the cab you are using, this is critical. If you are not sure buzz us on the forum and we will get you straight. Also make some noise to Randall about this. They will help you out. I have had a lot of good experience with the guys at Randall.
Get in touch with Kevin@Randall: kevin.drury@usmusiccorp.com
He will hook you up and if you still got warranty left on that amp, they will take good care of you. Don't get discouraged. Randall is some wicked good s*&t and they stand behind their products. Solid state amplifiers should last forever just about. C'mon bro, I want to hear you happy about turning up your Randall and ripping it up again!!!

Thanks guys for all the help on this and letting me vent Laughing

i returned the amp for a full refund and i bought the Diamond nitrox and really after messing with the EQ for about 3.5 weeks Shocked i have the sound i wanted and a top shelf amp that has a life time warranty. im really very happy with the diamond and would never get rid of it and now that its eq'd its a true monster but untill i hit the sound i hated it and it took some time but im in love with the beast, how ever ill be getting my RH 200 back and i am really happy about that one Twisted Evil

and i did talk with the guys with randall thru all of the BS i was going thru and there was no help at all, no parts for my rh 200 and no word or calls in over 2 months and it was Keven i was talking too......not impressed nor should i be because i was a true randall fan and i feel let down and i know of at least 5 band members that are in the same boat


its sad to say but its going to take alot for randall to prove there not building crap on mass, and i wont buy another new randall again Sad

edit, im running 2 8omh 400watt 4x12 cabs and 2 100watt 8ohm ext cabs in the chain, no effects

I'm sorry to hear that Randall didn't take care of you. Ever since they sold out to U.S. Musicorp. They have lost their edge. I think they are getting weaker and weaker. Have you seen how pathetic the design of the new Lynch Box is? I am glad that you got a killer amp though. I hear Diamond is a great company out of Texas and they are pretty f&*king heavy sounding. Rock on my Canadian friend. Tear the roof off the mutha fucka.
