Randall RG1503H Amp Head: Classic Tone, Modern Features

The RG1503H is a tough as nails 3-channel solid-state amplifier head designed with high gain very much in mind. More than just a simple re-issue, the RG1503H takes the basis of Randall’s legendary RG100 and RG80 designs and kicks it up to eleven with a ton of modern day features in order to bring you an amp head that mixes legendary sound with the versatility and technology of today’s best.


Killer Classic Tone

The RG1503H boasts 150 watts of sonic power and the infamous tone of the FET circuit, responsible for the sound that built Randall and backbone of several metal gods such as Scott Ian of Anthrax and Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett, just to name a few. It’s a hard rock amp head for hard rock players, through and through.


Featuring three channels that let you choose the right tone at the right time, a shared 4 band EQ, spring reverb similar to that of the RG80’s, FX/loop capabilities and speaker emulated XLR direct output with ground lift, the RG1503H is a perfect rock workhorse, all wrapped in a rugged enclosure strong enough to take the beatings of even the wildest gigs and then some!

The first channel, Gain 1, harkens back to the sound of the original RG100, a slightly clean sound that can still become overdriven when pushed, perfect for a more subdued sound right before an epic build up. Gain 2 ups the distortion level and adds a bit more volume to the mix, versatile enough for most of your tonal needs. And with Gain 3 – all bets are off! Max volume, max distortion! With the shared 4 band EQ for bass, middle, treble and presence – along with scooped mids and bass boost options – you can dial in everything from a nice, warm clean sound for that sultry metal ballad to a crunch so thick you’ll have the front row shaking for weeks.
