    I don’t see any voltage selector on the back of the T2HL and the pics of the ones on the guitarguitar site were marked 230v or 240v from memory. so just changing the fuse isn’t going to work, you’ll be giving an amp 120v that wants 240v. if you’re lucky the power transformer might have a multi...

    I have some spare time today and I've been playing the EOD88 a lot, heres a quick video I shot, since that choptones demo is pretty much the only decent one I could find. I used a boost for a lot of the video, details in video description:

    maybe this is a silly question, sorry if you’ve already done this, but did you rotate the voltage selector/fuse holder so ‘120’ is facing upwards toward the arrow? I looked at the pic on the guitarguitar website and stock it looks like it’s set for 240v (hard to tell since the pics are so...

    I don’t think the amp would make any noise at all if the mains fuse was blown. as for the preamp tubes, the V2 has a solidstate channel that doesn’t use the preamp tubes right? Same result with both channels? from what I recall one tube is a 12AT7 and is for the power amp, if that tube is...

    It could have been down to wall voltage, this one is wired for 230v and while the U.K. is technically 230v, I consistently get 245v to 250v at my wall (technically within tolerance). so if it was fired up at 230v in the factory, set to 70%, all the voltages would be higher at my house. I set...

    PSA for anyone who bought/is buying one of the tube amps, check your bias. When I was reviewing the pictures I took I noticed 1 ohm resistors on the cathodes of the power tubes, so when I was measuring the voltages I inadvertently also measured the bias, which is approx 63ma per tube. Based on...

    To be fair those V2’s and T2’s were discontinued maybe a decade ago right? If they’ve been sat in a warehouse since then, maybe one of them burst it’s caps when first turned on.

    My EOD88 arrived, supposed to arrive Monday but it’s here Saturday which is neat. it is more ‘classic’ voiced, if I want a modern metal tone from it I need a boost and an eq in the loop to pull out the mids a bit. It’s a cool sounding amp though. More gain than I expected in the first...

    That’s weird how that happened. I wonder if someone bought them all, or if they just pulled all the Randall gear for some reason.

    Not like an orange and more like a hot rodded Marshall you say, ok I’m interested again. I did find that demo when looking around but it was literally the only good one so I wasn’t sure if it was an anomaly, like Ola making a Marshall MG sound good. But if it’s accurate... eh fuck it...

    cool, yeah I think the combo was the ‘newer’ version also. Good to hear it isn’t just some junk. I may give it a shot, just to have something a little different around. May well be different from the older version as I saw a lot of people describing the old T2 as very tight and modern sounding...

    Has anyone tried that T2 head? T2HL seems to be the full model name, apparently this silver/grey faceplate version is different from the older black-faceplate model? I’ve been googling around part of today but there’s like no good clips of the T2’s, older ones or this one. I see some people...

    Bareknuckle Pickups in a PRS 7-string ?

    I quite like the Afermaths I have in my Regius. They are tight and dry, percussive sounding. The bridge is quite a brash sounding pickup but I think that works great for metal. It splits well too. Neck pickup is kinda dark, works great for high gain lead but I don’t like it for much else...
