Mesa Boogie 2 Channel Dual Rectifier
Mesa Boogie Trem-O-Verb
Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb

aside from the obvious tremelo and reverb functions, are there any big or subtle differences in sound?

get the dual rectifier and put a rack effect in the loop and you can't go wrong

Trem-O-Verb and Rect-O-Verb have much better clean channels. The -verbs are more of a cross between a 2 and 3 channel in the gain department, well at least the new ones; they're also quite a bit more versatile.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Depends how you like your Recto to sound

The 2 channel is going to be a bit tighter, but the -verb won't have nearly the same amount of flub as a 3 channel. Use an OD and it should be very close.

I really dig the T-Verb's sound. Huge tone.

Hehe.

So do you think a Trem-O-Verb with a Ibanez Jemini used as a boost would be able to get a variety of tones...

From a Metallica sort of sound to a Between the Buried and Me sound to a Dream Theater to a Protest the Hero sort of sound?

Never tried the 2 Ch Rec or Rectoverb, but have owned a T-Verb 2x12 combo in the past and now have the head version.

I think its cleans is one of the best that Mesa created. The distortion will be smoother and less fizzier than the 3 Ch rectifiers but still agressive. If you put an OD in there it will get that tight metal chunk you want.

Incubus's S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album is what the T-Verb is capable of.
