52 pedals, week 23—Randall RGOD

Hi. Remember me? I used to write regularly about the guitar pedals I desired. There would be 52 of them eventually. The aim—never really set in stone—was to release a post a week. That way it’s easy for me to manage and hopefully not too much for anyone paying attention to deal with as I post the links to social media. Well, the real world got in the way. My day job has been keeping me occupied and I’ve been enjoying a real social life—that’s not something I’m going to apologise for. I also purchased a Randall RD5C tube amplifier. That’s seen me playing guitar instead of writing about it—also not something I’ll apologise for.

Having mentioned all of that, I feel it’s time to get back into the swing of things. So today I reintroduce the 52 pedals series with the Randall RGOD pedal. If figure Randall is partially to blame for my recent writing departure. they should be responsible for my return. I want the RGOD pedal! 52 pedals, week 23—Randall RGOD

52 Amplifier Heads, week 24—Randall Diavlo RD5H

After 24 weeks of researching what will be the first tube amplifier head I am destined to purchase, I thought it was time to revisit my needs. What am I after exactly? A tube head obviously. But what are the specifics? Basically, they are this:

  • Low wattage for home use
  • Ability to produce brutal metal tones

As you can see, my needs are simple. But what I’m really after is something that provides more metal tones than anything else. I want a built-in metal tone that I can expand upon with my pedal farm. I want an amplifier head that looks metal because it is metal. Hello Randall Diavlo RD5H. 52 Amplifier Heads, week 24—Randall Diavlo RD5H
