    I'm definitely not loaded enough to buy whatever I want, but I also don't use loans or credit for gear (since I'm honestly a bedroom, non-gigging guitarist that doesn't "need" anything). I buy most of my stuff used (especially pedals), and don't constantly churn through gear.

    I think if you're a gigging musician, it's more reasonable to do something like finance a bigger amp or something if you need one at the time, or maybe you make and sell your music online and want an AFXIII that you know you'll use.

    In my case, financing something I don't need at all seems foolish

    I Agree with the above statement as said previously as long as you know what you want and do you your homework you can definitely score some bargains on the used market.

    Don't want to steer this in a religious direction, but purely from a MARKETING standpoint, the amp name "Satan" is a marketing disaster. In marketing you want to appeal to as many people as possible. This is already a metal amp, which is a niche market. But then you have to remember that a lot of metalheads are christians too. And to a christian, Satan is a defeated foe, a powerless loser, defeated by the blood of Christ. And no christian will want to own anything with his name on it. So the amp appeals to a niche within a niche.

    I dunno, Dave Friedman has a flagship amp named after the human anus and it doesn't seem to have done too much damage to sales.

    Randall had a shit ton of problems.

    Having an amp named the Satan was a very very minor problem compared to the rest, or not even a blip on the radar.

    After weeks of intense protests, Randall has announced that they have renamed the Randall 666 the Randall 667

    And it's got the HBE mode, or Hairy Brown Eye.


    Wait until you figure out what the Friedman PT means!

    Hahaha Satan is a little more in your face than Brown Eye (or more commonly BE-100). I can understand why some Christians would steer clear. Is that a large enough demographic to matter though? I doubt it.

    This from the guy that plays regularly in the church band and creates all the patches for the church's POD. There may or may not be a super high gain patch with no practical Sunday purpose modeled after a particularly unholy amp.

    It may or may not be called, "Get Behind Me."

    I’m not really a fan of the Satan name either, not for religious reasons, I just think it sounds cheesy as hell.

    The Satan is a badass amp. Seriously an amazing amp especially for the price they can be found used. I don’t know why Randall wouldn’t just keep the amp in production and rename it after Ola left.

    The PT is actually a dish served at Japanese fusion restaurants consisting of a lightly tempura'd corn tortilla filled with salmon sashimi and drenched in a clear special sauce.
