This is one classy combo amplifier. This design has three channels but I would argue it has two. There is a clean channel and a vintage/modern channels which they claim is two channels for distortion. To me it is only more of the same but with just a different twist.

The clean on Randall are somewhat unique to my ears. They have a Marshall or British style voicing to them that is not that appealing to me. I have never liked a Randall clean channel. It is better than a Splawn that is for sure. The clean is sort of a harder clean that doesn't sound that glassy to me or even reminiscent of a Fender tube amp.
There distortion channels is what Randall does well. These two channels or one with a twist has enough gain for just about anybody out there. It is a thick and juicy distortion that is great for chugging and lead riffing. Randall makes one of the best distortion in the business and this is one of them.
I don;t think Randall in in production of these amps anymore. I think they have pretty much fizzled out. You can find them on the used market for sure. I would recommend this amp to someone who wants a decent clean channel and an over the top distortion channel for vintage playing styles ad new modern playing. This amp is very versatile and will serve its user quite well.
