    So does my 1x12 8080 combo for the record. I cant weigh in on what its entire function is but I changed mine out recently and there was definitely an improvement in sound.

    Exactly.
    Randall RGs G3 also have tube somewhere in signal path, while previous RGs were all SS.

    I very much enjoy the current peavey bandit generation. I'm never thinking about my tone when playing one, which I consider a good thing. Quite a few tonal options too for the tweakers.

    Has anyone tried out the current Randall RG generation? If it's anything like the sound on the new Crowbar record, I damn sure need one.

    dunno about the new record, but the classic crowbar sound is a century 200
