Randall Previews Flagship 100 Watt MTS Series Combo


January 14, 2005

This new Flagship MTS series combo designed t for the weekend warrior, club professional, or studio pro, looking for a fully loaded all-tube amplifier with multiple tones.

Designed for ultimate flexibility, this 3-channel modular tube combo offers mobility without sacrificing the punchy tone of a closed back cabinet. Historically, the popularity of larger high gain 2 x 12″ combos have not reached wide acceptance due to the fact they did not retain the full focused sound of their larger counterpart. With this in mind and because it's an a MTS series amp, Randall had to design a cabinet that would compliment the flexible tone circuit and perform equally well for both high gain rock and metal, as well as low to mid-gain country and blues.

To achieve this wide-range of tones, Randall designed the amp with a dual back panel option. From the factory the amp comes basically sealed giving you the punch and tightness of a closed 2 x 12, but a 1/3 of the rear panel is removeable to achieve the looser more soft low end traditionally found in open to semi-open back combos.
