So more of a tight tone than a chuggy tone????
If you play prog, a Mark III/IV would be better for dist. and clean, and everything inbetween.

perfect for abr and btbam, awesome distortion, might need 2 noise gates, 1 atleast if u want more distortion less buzz. i have 2 decimators, cuts the hum noise 3/4


you should probably play some of the amps ur looking at at a store to find one you like tonewise, then find it cheaper else where

'08 Ibanez S5470 Prestige
Gibson SG Special - discontinued teal finish
Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier
4x12 Mesa Oversized Slanted Cab

Yes exactly, there is a Mark III for $900 and a IV for $1200 what would be the best out of those 2?

Dual Rectifier is also probably a better choice than a triple, in hindsight, first hand experience, less hum on the dual

that's a sick price, definitely a heavy amp, there may be a bit too much "flab" for your liking, but try it out and you might like it.

If it is in good condition you could re-sell it for a lot more then that. 1200 CAD is less then 950 american dollars

EDIT: Jump on that Mark IV if you can, that would be ideal for your styles, and is an extremely versatile amp.

Yea man I was just listening to that talent show song sounds pritty sick

Thanks
BTW, just to kill any second thoughts of the Recto, they are very loose, flabby, and muddy.

Thats all opinion

I am sick of the UG Recto bandwagon hate because of the looser chugging low end. With an overdrive pedal, that **** is as tight as a VHT...**** sakes no one tries these things

Im not disagreeing that another amp might be better....in fact....a VHT Deliverance would be perfect.

ABR used them on the last tour...SICK amps.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

FYI, i HAVE tried one. And he doesnt have and OD, plus Rectos are better for metalcore/nu-metal and usually not tight enough for fast stuff like BTBAM and ABR.

Are you kidding me? You know BTBAM played racktifiers right?

Rectos are very tweaky, more so than you'd think. The tone controls interact with eachother in abnormal ways, and the volume knob changes the sound hugely. "Trying" one and writing it off as only good for Linkin Park is retarded.

Are you putting two in front of the amp or one in the loop and one in front? You shouldnt need two.

BTBAM plays Recto Roadkings don't they? and I think they use some sort of O/D to tighten it up. But yeah their live tone ****ing slays, it's all about EQing properly and everything.

Roadking> dual and triple solo heads combined.

The modern and vintage channels are from the recto series...the only difference is the clean/fat and tweed/brit are from the lonestar. Thats the only difference

when all you want to play is metal and death metal, not really......

I'm not saying that the lonestar cleans arent nice, im just saying, he wants it for metal, and he can save himself about $900 US by going with a Triple Recto

Now, I'm pretty sure they're still using some combo of the Thunderverb 200 and another amp, maybe a roadking. But they used to tour and record with racktifiers (old 2 channel rackmounted rectos).

I saw the DVD, the rhythm guitarist, dustie, uses a recto roadking.

The lead guitarist, paul, used rack gear.
