Following a year-long collaboration between Randall Amplifiers and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett, Randall has unveiled the KH-15 Signature Practice Amp. The KH-15 is the latest Kirk Hammett addition to Randall´s gear line-up since they announced partnership during Winter NAMM 2008.

The practice amp features two channels - one clean, and one custom overdrive with boost for extra gain. The rest of the spec includes 3-band EQ (bass, middle and treble), spring reverb, front 1/4" headphone jack and rear CD/tape input. The KH-15 will set you back $129.90.

Metallica fans will also appreciate the control labels; written in Kirk´s own handwriting - a nice touch.
