Lovely tones right there imo. Wonder how the prices will be here in Turkey, probably overpriced as hell, brand new Dual Rectos are like 5100 turkish liras, which is around 3000ish US dollars...

can they really achieve the same result as 6l6/el34 tubes with el 84 "dyna watt" tubes ???

the 20/20 dyna watt power amp sound nothing like the mesa simul class 2:90 IMO !!! so i wonder how much this mini recto will sound like a real rectifier .

Still its a sweet little amp .. but the demo arent THAT convincing IMO . sounds good .. but in the 1000 $ market for a head .. you have a lot of options . + the matching cab are gonna be expensive too (449) $ .

1000 $ head + 1x12 cab + 1x12 slant cab = near 1900 $


its sweet but its expensive .

Either way, it dosent sound ANYTHING like a recto.
Kind of like a hybrid of Mark and 5150 to me.

I think it pretty much sounds just like a Recto and nothing like a Mark.

Sounds just like a Recto to me. I can see Mesa selling a lot of these to all those guys on Craigslist who used to gig, but now the wife wants that massive head and cabinet out of the living room.

Sounds like a Recto to this Recto owner.

I wish they'd add more mids to their clean tones though. The clean channel really shines when you dial up the mids and dial back the gain a bit. Otherwise it really loses an element of gloss (for lack of a better term) that I really love from Recto cleans.

I'll grab it if a rack mount version appears, like the Racktifier or the RackMark.

Or a rack adaptor.

Run it in stereo with the ENGL. YUM.

That'd actually be really cool.

I'd buy that, if it was cheap

Maybe not tighter, but something about it sounds way different from a regular rec, especially on the Vintage and Pushed modes....

Dude... have you ever actually played a real Dual Rec? Apart from the styling, this amp has practically nothing in common with a proper Recto so no bloody wonder it doesn't sound like one.

Sounds like ass... High end is buzzier than a 3 channel Recto, the bass is really lacking, second high gain clip doesn't have the saturation of the real Rectos, etc. Hopefully it's just the demo though.

I didnt think just EL84's can make such a big difference
And it bears no similarity to the older two channels either......completely new circuit?

I used to think there wasnt a huge difference between the 2 ch. models and the 3 ch.
Ive played both only limited amount of time on each and ive owned singles which I like singles.
But now that ive spent a little time with my 2 ch.
Holy **** the differences are huge.
No boomy low end,Its tighter,and no shrill sounding high end, Its weird I never really noticed the differences till I spent some actual time with a 2 ch.

I still like single recs my rov is only for sale to lessen the damage from my 2 ch. Which wasnt that bad at $900 shipped with ata case

In short theres no way th mini rec will sound like its big brothers

EDIT- Idk why it quoted you didnt mean to my bad I was just making general talk

Is there any difference between the blackface and silverface 2 ch rectos?

I really dont know specifics tbh

From what ive found the blackfaces are a bit rarer.
The last 2 ch. silverface I played was about a year ago and my tech had modded it quite a bit.(hes since sold it).
I dont think theres any huge differences though(at least tonewise)

Hopefully I can get some time to record a few clips with the 2 ch. she sounds beastly, cleans are kinda lacking I havent spent much time on the clean ch. though.

If they are different Revisions, yes. In most cases, the Blackface was just an option you could upgrade to from Mesa. Many of the earlier Rectos came with a black face/chrome chassis, though. Black/black ones are ones that were ordered with the option, or painted later.

So by dating the year of mine im guessing its a revision g its black on black not painted though.
Whats the major differences in revisions?

I heard f is what is sought after but also heard that the tone differences were minor if any.(most topics Ive found on it turn into debates lol)

Most I really found in minimal research though mostly google is that the big diff was the revision f was housed in a mark iii chassis or iv cant remember which exactly im not sure thats truth though .

Im liking how I turned this thread into a 2 ch. rec thread though

Edit- I was pretty wrong I guess heres what I found-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesa_Boogie#Dual_Rectifier

I had the revisions with the mark iv chassis screwed up.

I'm not fan of Rectos and I liked the sound of that. I get the feeling they just slapped the Recto name on an unrelated amp for marketing purposes.

Any chance you'll be doing anything with a 6 string?

7 and 8 strings always sound so similar to me in most modern productions. I'd imagine a 6 would be much tighter and probably less fizzy.

Sounds considerably better than I thought it would, though. But it definitely has the EL-84 characteristics once you turn it up
