Randall RT2-50 50w/50w Stereo Tube Power Amplifier
An amazing versatile stereo tube power amp. It puts all the others to shame and is in leagues of its own!
The Randall RT2-50 is a 50W/50W 2-channel stereo power amp. It can switched via MIDI or is footswitchable with RF4 foot controller. Comes with 6L6s in Channel 1, and EL34s in Channel 2. Each channel has master volume, presence, and density controls; MIDI in/thru; and 4-, 8-, or 16-ohm switch. Paired with modden Mesa Boogie V-Twin preamp, it produces fantastic tube analogue sounds (at any volume) which are beyond describing and must be heard. One can use one channel or both channels, both channels with the same tubes, or different channels with different tubes. One can also bridge the two individual tube power amps and have it as a 100 watt mono tube power amp. At the moment it has 6L6 GC JJ on one channel and EL34 JJ on the other channel. It sounds amazing! I also have a set of 2 brand new matched pairs of Herma 6L6 tubes for spares or to have different sounds and dynamics. I also have a set of four top of the range EL34 Marshall tubes if you want more of the Marshall sounds.
All the biasing on the amp is done externally and the manual is pretty simple and straight forward. All tubes are easily accessible from the back. Cosmetically the amp is in very good condition and is also in perfect working order and in few words it is a beast that produces old school and all new sounds.
- Footswitchable with the RF4 foot controller or via MIDI
- 6L6s in Channel 1
- EL34s in Channel 2
- Each channel has master volume, presence, and density controls
- MIDI in/thru
I'm willing to sell the amp alone, it is circa £1000. If you also want the additional tubes please contact me.
Mesa Boogie V-Twin Rackmount Guitar Valve Preamp
This is the legendary Mesa Boogie Dual Channel each with 6 tube Voicing pure analogue valve Preamp, including unique option of mixing 2 channel clean and dirty (with any combination of the voicing, also via foot switch (optional) or MIDI switch Included - 15 VOICING SOUNDS IN TOTAL ALL REAL TUBE/VALVES 100% ANALOGUE NEUTRAL ORGANIC TUBE SOUNDS).
Pristine clean (Fender and more) sounds and very good blues rock overdrive & distortions sounds. For metal, I put in front (Fat boost by Demeter also for sale and you can add your favourite pedal) to get pure tube Boogie Rectifier sounds and more, this is your perfect match!!!
This preamp is great on a huge stage rig, small to medium venues, using the special compensation output for stereo recording (which it's known for being one of the best in the industry), direct to a PA system and other outputs for tube and non tube power amps, at home practising, with headphones, effects chain and more!
The Engl Z-11 Midi Switcher - including rack mounting has 100 presets, MIDI Omni channels or 8 specific channels. 6 switch loops. Very well kept in very good condition and perfect working order which will do the job. For your convenience I will include an Engl Z11 with rack mount and cables, so you can use the V-Twin to the MAX!
The sounds that the preamp produces are unbelievable, from crystal clear all the way to Mesa Boogie Rectifier. You literally can have the cleanest clean sound with chimey bells and tight bottom to mid blusey overdrive to vicious creamy lead. One can rave about this preamp endlessly as it has switchable effect loop, stereo recording output and much more.

Lexicon MPX1 V.1.1 Guitar Effects Processor
The MPX1 promises to be a flexible machine that can be approached on a number of levels: the factory presets provide instant gratification, simple editing will provide enough variation to satisfy many users, yet the sound designer will find the flexible routing and modulation options provide plenty of scope for creativity. I've only played with the MPX1 for a day so far, but I'm already impressed.

Here we have the Lexicon MPX1, used but both in excellent condition. The MPX1 has the latest software installed (v1.1). If you're looking at this then you no doubt know just how amazing they are. But if not here's a bit of blurb from Lexicon to wet your whistle.
The MPX 1 is the processor that fulfills the promise implied by the term, "multi-effects." Multiple Processor FX technology combined with an interactive front panel, creates a new set of standards for others to follow... no less than you'd expect from Lexicon.
