Randall Amplifiers Announces Nuno Bettencourt Signature Series Amplifier and Cabinet

Chicago, IL, 25 September, 2008 – Randall Amplifiers will debut the new Nuno Bettencourt NB100 Amplifier & NB412 Cabinets at the January 2009 NAMM Show. Nuno has been touring the world with this set up and is currently on tour in Europe.

Here are Nuno’s comments on his new Randall:

"There is a reason that I have never endorsed any amplifier company exclusively. Because I have always had to jump back and forth from amp to amp. One for rhythm... Another for solos. A different amp on every recording and tour... constantly searching... unsatisfied. Always good... but not great. Never finding that perfect tone. There was always something missing. Basically, I gave in and truly believed that Marshall would be the staple to fall back on... The Constant. Until now. The words... "I’ve got an amp that I will put my name on and have put it up against any other amplifier and blew them away". I thought those words would not come out of my mouth. But they have. And it’s true. I’ve worked on this amp for over 3 years. We’ve delayed release of the amp until it was perfect. Mission accomplished. It’s not fancy. It just sounds killer. It’s a workhorse. One clean channel. One dirty channel. And a boost solo channel... with its own volume and drive controls, because when it’s time to let loose... you should be heard loud and clear. As a bonus, it looks like no other amp and cabinet before it... the look takes the past into the future."
