I mentioned on Jan 20th that Randall are releasing a Nuno Bettencourt signature amplifier called the NB King 100, well while we are all waiting for Randall to update their product website here are a few more details and some more images. Above you will see a close up photo of the head. Here is the description from the new product catalogue.
A classic 2-channel amp with 3 modes of operation, you can instantly select via the MIDI channel switching, a sparkling CLEAN channel with the perfect amount of drive, an OVERDRIVE for any vintage to modern high gain rhythm tones and a SOLO mode for unparalleled harmonic sustain. The rear panel features include MIDI in/thru, Power tube bias section and Series Effect loop.
Here is a closer view of the 2 channel controls plus the Solo mode. I assume the Solo mode is the overdrive channel boosted as they describe the NB King 100 as a 2 channel amp? The power amp is driven by 4 EL34 Power Tubes and has a power output of 100 Watts. The NB412 Speaker Cabinet comes loaded with 4 12″ Celestion Greenback 30’s and is made from 3/4' Void Free Birch Plywood.
I love the styling of this amp from the big single volume knob which reminds of Back To The Future and the VU Meter it has a very stylish retro look to it. Here is a close up of the VU Meter.
Aside from the NB King 100 Randall have some very cool amps for 2009, flicking through the catalogue I noticed they have some very nice vintage looking amps such as the RM50CRP2 and plenty of Metal amps such as the V2 Ninja designed by Michael Amott.
