Randall Amplifiers takes a different approach to power by developing a completely new proprietary power circuit called Valve-Dynamic, which they feel finally breaks the barriers between tube and FET. Incorporating this tube driven MOSFET power circuit into several of their amps was designed to not only capture a power tube's true reactive qualities including the feel, warmth, and musical character, but combine that with the durability and lifespan of a 400 watt MOSFET power amp. The new Valve-Dynamic power circuit is the lifeblood powering the new V2 and T2 guitar amplifiers.

The chance to demo and judge for your self will be late December as the V2 and T2 begin to arrive in stores. For the more budget conscious, Randall will also be releasing an entirely new G3 Series line at January NAMM, which also incorporates the new Valve-Dynamic power section.

The V2

Developed for the guitarist who likes multiple tone shaping options, the V2 can produce a range of tones, utilizing a full tube preamp as well as a classic Randall solid-state preamp. The new Tube driven Mosfet power section called Valve-Dynamic powers the V2 with so much reaction and feel that you would swear it was full set of power tubes driving the amp according to the company. This 12AT7 driven power circuit not only has the feel, but also an accurate frequency response found only in a full tube power section as well says Randall.



V2 Overview Specs and Features
  • A new Tube/Mosfet hybrid power section called Valve-Dynamic. Each Valve-Dynamic power section incorporates a 12AT7 preamp tube which drives the first 2 stages of this new power circuit.
  • 400 Watts RMS @ 4 ohms, 280 Watts RMS @ 8ohms, 500 Watts RMS @2 ohms (capable, but not recommended.)
  • 3-MIDI Switching/Programmable Channels:
    • Ch. 1: Classic full clean with plenty of clean headroom.
    • Ch. 2: Classic Randall Solid-state overdrive with push/pull "Sustain Boost".
    • Ch. 3: All tube preamp with 3-12AX7 preamp tubes. Includes Attack switch for tight and loose feel, and Bright switch.
  • MIDI Assignable 6-band Graphic EQ with single On/Off switch. Can be activated for any/all channels then stored and recalled by the included 5-button MIDI foot controller.
  • Assignable Series or Parallel effects loop with single On/Off switch. Can also be activated for any/all channels then stored and recalled by the included MIDI foot controller.
  • Master front Volume control
  • Master Density control. Adjusts the power amp low end dynamics.
  • Master Presence control. Adjusts the power amp extreme high end dynamics
  • MIDI in/thru
  • Mic Eliminator XLR direct recording output
  • World voltage AC inlet
  • $1,450 Retail
  • $1150 MAP
  • Available Dec 15th. 2005


The T2

Designed with a simple straight ahead front panel layout, this brute has a shorter, less complex signal path that produces an extremely powerful, punishing tone. Highly versatile, this 2-channel, 3 mode amplifier offers an extremely wide range of tones to fit any playing style while seriously catering to those who hunger for gain.

A power circuit called Valve-Dynamic is the engine that drives this new high powered head. This new developed Tube driven Mosfet power section is driven by a 12AT7 for natural tube feel and compression. However, the key to this power circuit is the accuracy in frequency response of a full 100 watt tube power amp, which results in tube tone, feel, and response according to Randall.

T2 Overview Specs and Features
  • A revolutionary new Tube/Mosfet hybrid power section called Valve-Dynamic. Each Valve-Dynamic power section incorporates a 12AT7 preamp tube which drives the first 2 stages of this new power circuit.
  • 400 Watts RMS @ 4 ohms, 280 Watts RMS @ 8 ohms, 500 Watts RMS @2 ohms (capable, but not recommended.)
  • All Tube Preamp with 2-Channels & 3 modes:
    • Mode 1: full tube clean with warm tone and plenty of headroom.
    • Mode 2: Classic overdrive channel for vintage to modern tube tone
    • Mode 3: A boosted overdrive with punishing gain and liquid sustain.
  • Independent Gain/Level controls for each channel.
  • 3-band passive EQ with Mid-range voicing control.
  • Assignable Series or Parallel Effects loop with single On/Off switch. Can also be activated for any/all channels then stored and recalled by the included MIDI foot controller.
  • Master front Volume control
  • Master Density control. Adjusts the power amp low end dynamics.
  • Master Presence control. Adjusts the power amp extreme high end dynamics
  • MIDI in/thru
  • Mic Eliminator XLR direct recording output
