I may be able to get my hands on a mesa single rectifier solo head for $700. I was initially looking at a 5150 head but this seemed like a great deal.

What are some of your thoughts on the amp?

I play mostly high gain stuff although i would like some versitility. I dont plan on gigging until the spring.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

Single rec=tasty crunchy goodness....and 50 watts is so angry at live volume levels.

Normally I'd be all for the Mesas, but I have yet to try a Single Recto I liked the sound of.

I found one once........ Only conclusion I could make of it was it was modded and I didnt know it or it was touched by the hand of god. Sounded amazing, great at low volumes and super easy to eq. And then the punch line, i didnt have the cash to buy it

My experiences with them are quite the opposite. The last one I used in a studio was the muddiest, grossest amp I've ever heard, and I know how to work the EQs on Rectos...

Download the manual and do some reading on the controls, it'll help give some insight into the way these things work.

If you're EQ'd loose, you'll sound loose anyway.

I have yet to find another one like it .. And most of the time I have horrible luck with anything with recto in the name.
