Randall introduces Kirk Hammett signature series

Randall Amplifiers launched the Kirk Hammett Signatures Series at winter NAMM show 2008 in Anaheim, California, and will also be exhibiting the line at Musikmesse Frankfurt, Hall 4 F25. The KH series includes amps, cabinets, modules and combos that all reflect the tones and voices that Metallica’s legendary guitarist has spent a career perfecting.
The Kirk Hammett Signature Series includes gear ranging from MTS modules, all-tube heads, power tubes and even a limited edition half-stack, fully decked out with solid maple cabinetry and chrome hardware. Kirk worked tirelessly with Randall to ensure that every aspect of the amps, from the clean and crunchy preamps to the stunning visual appeal, were fully up to the standards of one of the greatest guitar players.
“This is the first time I’ve really done any kind of amp endorsement,” said Kirk Hammett. “I knew that there’s a lot of work that goes into it, and I’m really picky anyway. But things have turned out great. I’m really proud of how these modules and amps have turned out.” From the half-stacks that can be used for recording and live shows to the 15-watt practice combos, every knob and button has been tweaked to perfection by Kirk and Randall’s dedicated staff.
“Working with Kirk Hammett was the ultimate joy for all of us here at Randall,” said David Karon, Artist Relations Manager at Randall Amplifiers. “We worked side by side together for over a year to perfectly capture every nuance of his tones. From experienced guitar players looking to record in the studio and play live gigs, to up and coming musicians perfecting their craft, we have a Kirk Hammett Signature Series line of gear to help you rock just like one of the most recognizable names in guitar-playing history.”
