i think it's not the gain alone that influences your palm muting.

aside from your PALM PLACEMENT, PICK ATTACK, PICKING STRENGTH USED, string gauge and pickups, you'll find that you have to tighten up your low end to get good palm mutes.

even after you purchase that mesa, you'll probably need an OD (which most of the time uses diode clipping) to tighten up the low end.

i say again: most important is to tighten up the low end (best way is with a pedal). not to buy another amp for the sake of more or less gain.

the single rect is awesome. probably one of the best amps i've ever played. But i would recommend the Randall MTS series over it any day. I know someone who can mod the recto module to sound even better than the actual mesa rectifier. His name is Rob (Jaded Faith on the MTS forum). If you get a Treadplate or Grail module, send it to him so he can work his magic. Or you can send it to Pete Turley (okstrat on MTS forum). His recto mod is great as well.

Check out the MTS series:

good luck.

The bright tones will give the electric guitar an acoustic sound and warmth. Bass will give it the right amount of bounce needed.
Gain provides a more overdrive or distortion sound so you want that taken off as much as you can. IT also provides more boost to make a gritty sound.

Write and practice slow, Always sit up right with a Straight back. Guitar should rest in between your legs, The guitar should be at a 49 to 48 degree angle from the ground while it is on your lap. Sit on a bar stool with the left leg (for right handed players) up higher than the right leg. OR get a guitar foot stool. To help keep the guitar in one position.

Rectos are medium gain now?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Maybe they've changed them so the gain only goes to about 2.5?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Yeah, what's next?
High-gain amps for AC/DC-sounds, picks for mid-gain?
Also the amount of VS threads increased very much.

EQ pedal dude - worked wonders for me..personally reccomend the MXR 10-band...though if its just palm mutes you're worried about at the moment they do a 6-band for about half the price

The term you are looking for is low end.

The more low end the more chug chug you get from your palm muting.

I guess the 5150/rectifiers/Engl's are your best bet for that alone but they are high gain amps not medium.

My orange rockerverb has a LOT of low end when you play in drop tunings.
