On my new mini recto there's no fx loop switch on the back?!

Hi.
I noticed there's no fx loop or hard bypass switch on the back of the amp as most have on images. Is it a older model or newer one? Or is it even real?!?
Thanks.

Mini recto's have an fx loop switch on the back.
All of them.

No offense to you, though judging from your experience you might have gotten yourself a rectoverb 25 head.

Would you post a picture of the back of your amp please, just to be sure?

^I'm unsure of the difference between the Mini Recto and the Rectoverb, you make it sound like the Rectoverb is either easier to use or just an inferior amp.

EDIT: And I know that they're different amps of course, but I thought that they're pretty much equal.

The Rectoverb 25 does not have a FX loop switch

Oh, Spambot meant that OP might have bought himself a rectoverb instead of a mini recto? Damn, my english is a bit slow today

Mesa does revisions of amps all the time so that is probably what it is. A early model

There are mini rectos on sale on thomann that have a back panel like that. So, I guess they don't all have an effects loop switch?

Its a current model. We removed the effects loop bypass switch and instead use normalling jacks - when there is something plugged into the loop the loop is active. With nothing plugged into the loop, it is automatically bypassed. Thanks!
