ANAHEIM, California, January 27, 2018 — Following Randall’s collaboration with internet video legend Ola Englund to create the SATAN amplifier head, thousands of metal guitarists worldwide made it a must-have phenomenon, demolishing sales expectations and bringing new power and ferocity to the genre. Recognizing its success and the growing demand for this now-famous sound, Randall is excited to launch the new SATAN50 amplifier, a 50-watt tube amp with the same stellar SATAN performance priced within reach of any serious guitarist at $1,499. The SATAN50 will be available for delivery to dealers beginning in February.
“Our latest collaboration with Ola Englund, one of today’s most prolific metal guitarists, is bringing high-end, metal-focused tube amps to an entire generation of players,” Joe Delaney, Randall Brand Director, said today. “This amp is another Mike Fortin-designed monster in terms of articulate gain staging, and after the success of its big brother we expect this lower-priced compact model to attract an even larger crowd and give dealers something to celebrate in 2018.”
The SATAN50 is a 2 channel, 50-watt amplifier with independent tone controls and boost. It features three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two 6L6 power amp tubes and includes biasing on the rear panel with multiple power tube options. Controls include Presence, Depth, and Master Volume, and it offers an effects loop with send level and passive or series return options. An included two-button footswitch enables channel and kill switching, as well as optional effects loop switching.
