We'll be performing at the NAMM Randall amplifier booth on Friday, and one more time on Saturday with. I am very pleased to announce in my search for great tone, I have arrived at the door of Randall amps, and could not be happier with the MTS series head. A very versatile amp, and great heavy tones, this amp has it all, and does it all! I'll also be over at the B.C. Rich booth, checking out the new B.C.'s coming out this year, and discussing a very killer surprise coming to you in 2009. Looking forward to the show!"
