isn't the Satan going into production this year also? I'm pretty exited for that if the price is right.

Yup. And the Kirk Hammett Meathead, and some other things.

So... Basically Mike Fortin is now supercharging randall's?, or Randall is buying his designs? Either way, seems like a win for both of them.

Yup. Some of Randall's existing amps are getting tweaked, and some of Fortin's original designs are becoming more affordable production amps.

I always think of Randall's when I hear some really aggressive tone.

Mike is also overseeing production to make sure the final production amps are up to his standards... really looking forward to seeing what all they release at NAMM

This too.

Randall made the right decision to bring him in. Maybe they can finally be big in the metal market again.

It's working! It's working!

I hope the Diavlo is the same price. $500 for a tube amp that sounds like that would be mind blowing.

I imagine certain amps will get price teaks, hopefully not serious ones

Reminds me of ENGL amp heads with their huge metal bars on the front.

Definitely gotta find something to replace this shoddy RX120 xD

The new tweaked Diavlos I think are already in stock at some online stores, they got the tag on them already and I think the same price.

I'm really curious to see what else comes out besides the mentioned Fortin designs. Maybe some new SS heads or "mini" amps?!


Edit: from a Facebook Randall endorsee

BTW. That is BY FAR the best sounding low wattage amp i've ever played! that is no "one trick pony" folks!!!

Yeah Mike said on another forum that the existing ones were updated so you should be able to find them in stock

^this. Why did Randall ever abandon so many of their awesome solid state mosfet designs? I'm sure the Dime craze would warrant bringing back the Warhead at least...

I guess wait until next month and see. Hopefully we'll have more hybrids and true SS amps.

Im def waiting to see also . Mike fortins work is bar non TIP TOP ! If Randall comes through on it , it'll be truly awsome . Just for starters , the Diavolo can take any power tubes el34(stock) , 6l6, kt88, 6550 , 6v6(jj only) etc. . The Diavolo has a fixed bias for all power tubes . You can flavor that amp any way you like . I've personally met Mike Fortin and hung out at some of the amp fests they had in NY . I've played a Meathead, Natas(satan) , cali mod , and my fav marshall he's modded the HULK MOD( the best sounding old school thrash amp ive ever heard). Mike was asking us old folk for us for a cab with V30's and a seven stringer at the last fest . There were guys there guitars with down tuned (drop G etc) and it sounded clear without any mud . Mikes really gotten into the game and expect some great stuff coming out in the new yr .

Does anyone know about what the Fortin modded Diavlo will be like? As in... what amps can it be compared to? When I heard a clip of the original Diavlo I really liked the sound, really nice raw/open and slightly gritty gain. how will the Fortin be different?

really looking forward to the satan coming out, has to be the only new head coming out i'm looking forward to

thole whole grind and girth def gives you a little more control of the feel of the gain the amp produces, you can go from an almost dry sounding fryette types gain to a 5150 type gain
