so they are dual recs, right? diode and solid state rectifiers? i have heard of them with both EL34 and KT77's.

i have the trem-o-verb should i consider one? i like the mesa EL34 thing kind of thing.

has anybody played on one?

Yes they are dual rectifiers, but they sound more like a pissed off Marshall than a Mesa Recto. The few I have tried have also been pretty bright sounding, but it was always with a Mesa V30 cab so different speakers could help a lot.

I'd say try one before you get rid of your trem-o-verb. I have heard people refer to them as a rectifier with no ass to them.

Personally if you want to get rid of the Mesa, I'd look at a used Splawn Nitro or Pro-comp. They have the Marshall thing going and they have the big Mesa lows.

Owned a Stiletto Trident for a very short period. Very loud, very middy I played it thru a wgs vet 30 and et65 it sounded Awesome!! Just tooo loud overall for a home rig. Maybe the Deuce will be a little tamer.

I almost traded for one once. I played it, thought it was pretty cool, but I doubt that it will do anything that your Splawns won't do in spades. Of course, that may not necessarily be any reason to not get one for you

I think it would be a neat one to grab, definitely don't see them everyday. A lot of the time you can find them for pretty cheap, too.

I've always read kind of 'iffy' reports on the Stilettos.

I would def be after a Road King or maybe a Royal Atlantic.


I need an RA. So bad. Painfully bad.

The Stiletto has always reminded me of a Quickrod, but harder to dial in. Better cleans though.

Yes, you do. Awesome Mids, specially towards the high end. Very nice cut and very loud.

Clean is very nice indeed and it's chunky because of the low Mids, very nice growl. I have the Trident.

The RA and Stiletto both retain the huge Mesa sound.

I have played one ONCE but it was so awesome. I really don't jive with Mesa normally, I had a MK III and a 2 Channel Rec and I just couldn't love them, but the RA was hawt.
