Diavlo has RISEN!!!


from New Orleans,LA

Comments about Randall RD45H Diavlo 45W Tube Guitar Head:

This thing is a beast!!! I had the pleasure of demoing one of this things in GC today and I was blown away. Let's start with the clean channel. I have to admit I was extremely surprised in the quality of the clean section. A lot of high gain amps that I have tried have clean sections that are barely usable and have little to no musical quality. I was amazed at the bottom end on the clean section and was surprised to see that the les paul I was playing was on the bridge setup. The tones are not glassy like a fender,but its more like a high end Marshall, meaning that the cleans are very dark sounding. The distortion channel is where this thing shines. On the lower gain setting I was able to get a respectable crunch setting. It is not as warm sounding as a plexi or anything,but it does do a great job at emulating those rock tones of the 60's and 70's. As I increased the gain I was expecting fizzyness to creep in as I had the master volume on a very low setting,but I was amazed at the clarity of the amp and with the gain about ? the way it was nailing all those 80's metal/hard rock tones. The harmonics were flying left and right and were achieved with little effort. I would say that with the gain full on I did not notice too much of a difference in sound,but that is where the boost function comes in. when I kicked on the boost the amp essentially became a 3 channel amp. To give a good idea how it sounds with the gain boosted the only thing I could compare it to is a Dual Rec...seriously. The sound on the highest gain section is very tight. A high gain American style tone. The EQ controls are actually responsive to the slightest turn and I know that a lot of people actually don't like this,but I love it. The presence control actually is a great addition and opens up a whole range of tonal possibilities. My BIG complaint is the lack of a reverb control,however I may just go with the combo version because when I demoed this thing it was attached to a 4 X 12 and it was a little too much for me. Even though the sounds at low volume were awesome I think the 4x12 setup may be too much for my apartment. If you need a stage amp or don't live in an apartment do yourself a favor and scoop up this baby. Compared to the earlier models the Mike Fortin line of Diavlo has quality that you would have to pay 4 times as much for.

    Comments about Randall RD45H Diavlo 45W Tube Guitar Head:

    nice overall amp almost returned it until i changed all the tubes to JJ tubes now it's a keeper. Would be nice if the footswitch had LED lights to tell what was activated but that's not that big of a deal. I did have an EVH 5150 iii 50 watt head that i returned for this, that was way too loud with no master volume control.

    This amp has an amazing overdrive channel. No more need for distortion pedals. Even sounds great at bedroom volume levels with the master volume. Pairs perfectly with my Ibanez M80M. Bought the matching Diavlo 4x12 cab to go with it. 5 stars Randall.
