I found a good priced mesa boogie rect-o-verb combo on local craigslist and its got me pretty interested, the problem is all the reviews and videos of it i can find use it mainly for metal. I find that to be a pretty good feature because i do play a bit of metal and would like to have that option available and have it be as a good as mesas distortion is, but i mainly play more clean music. Is the recto still a good amp for more jazz, blues, and crunchy sounding music? i know it has a vintage channel but does it have a good marshall distortion sound on it?
Yes they are pretty versitile amps. They can do classic rock fine also. The cleans are pretty good for how much Gain is on tap.
