Now, I realize that we’ve been posting a lot about Ola Englund lately, but to be fair, it’s been a big year for him. His line of signature guitars are coming soon from Washburn, he joined the Haunted, he released not one but TWO Feared albums, and he surpassed 60,000 subscribers and 20 MILLION views on his YouTube channel, so he’s essentially his own successful TV series. If you were a guitar manufacturer, you’d want to give him a signature guitar too, cuz the guy is on fire.
So now following a 2 year collaboration with Randall Amplifiers, he is releasing his signature SATAN head. The subject of many of his YouTube videos, the Satan is a crushing high gain amp that sounds crunchy and tight and clean even with a lot of distortion. The guy has tried pretty much every high gain amp on the planet, so he was definitely the guy to ask.
Here are the specs straight from Ola:
“Randall Amplifiers is beyond proud to formally announce SATAN… Ola Englund’s new signature amplifier from Randall Amplifiers.
Satan is the result of a two-year collaboration between Ola Englund and Randall Amplifiers. The goal being to create the most brutal and aggressive amplifier Randall has ever built…
