Very cool news.

I'm a big Metallica fan despite some of the hate out there and the Natas is a beast of an amp so this is all around major jizz worthy.

Been listening to some of the Yankee stadium vids, there is an Orion vid out there that sounds awesome. Yes the vibrato hurts still but Kirk sounds awesome in front of 50,000+ :rock:

REALLY cool Mike!!! When will they be making an announcement on adding Hetfield to the artist roster (ink still drying on that one?). Any more details on Het's amp? Will it be based off of an amp in your current product line...Or a completely brand new model? (I hope it has at least 4 channels!). I know that you are bound by certain agreements...But I am excited to learn more about this amp...THANKS!

ok, i know it's too much to hope for, but here goes.........(based on the picture from the above link)

so mike fortin gives randall the meathead design. randall mass produces it and sells it for, say $2k.

a man can dream, right?

The Meathead is Mike's design and he is on with Randall, he is giving nothing away. He has full creative and design control while working with Kirk and James. It will not be mass produced and will be high quality.

Glad you are digging it Steve :rock:

That is a cool Cali for sure. It's a Canadian oddity with it being a late 70's with a laydown PT.

Cheers,
Mike

Hey Guys,
http://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=107965
I've been contacted about this many times, I'd like to set the record straight. There is currently no affiliation between James and Randall. We're huge fans of James and of course we'd love to see a Randall get added to his rig :rock:
Cheers,
Mike

The MTS line is being discontinued it sounds like - Mike, do you have any insights into why? Are you designing something better, such that Randall thought they could just leave it to Egnater?
