Randall rg80es red channel help
« on: May 05, 2020, 06:50:47 PM »
I recently bought a rg80es, no footswitch. From my understanding though you can just turn down the volume on the channel you don’t want to have your preferred channel. The problem with my amp is that when I do that the red channel has no distortion basically sounds the same as the clean channel. Any suggestions.

For the distorted sound, set master volume low and channel volume high.
For clean sound, set master high and channel volume low.
The pull switch on the treble control engages the clipping diodes on the red channel.

Thanks for the reply. I’ve tried this and the distortion still sounds very weak and saturated, I’ve even tried a 6 band eq still no big difference, the pull out treble knob does add a little extra, but still nothing compared to the sound clips I’ve seen of this amp.

Is it possible to do a quick video showing the issues?
