I may be buying a carvin legacy soon mainly for the amazing solo tones. But I was wondering if theres any pedal I could use over it to get a Dual Recto like tone for rythme?

You are buying a Legacy and you want a distortion pedal? What?

Just save up for a Recto or get yourself a good overdrive.

Mesa V-Twin pedal. You can find them on eBay occasionally.

I want a Pedal for rythme, the Legacy Lead tones amazing aswell as the cleans but I've heard the rythme was lacking a little.

Don't, unless you're modding it. Thin as ****.

what would you reccomend?

I've been looking into Keeley Mod pedals lately are there any in partical that could achieve an accurate Recto tone for hi gain rythme?

Or how about a Big Muff or Metal Muff or some kind of electro harmonix?

Try the Legacy before you buy it. I'm not a fan of the lead channel at all, and I know quite a few others agree with me. By itself, the Legacy is fairly low gain and, to my ears, sounds weak and muddy. That said, the clean channel is just fantastic. The best I've ever heard.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

what would you reccomend then? I think I've tried almost everything around $1,000 I liked the Peavey JSX but from sound clips of the legacy I still thought it was better. Should I buy the Single Rectifer and a boost pedal for solos?

How can you say the legacy sounds muddy though.....

Like I said, try it out. If you like it, buy it. I'm not a fan of the tone in any of those videos, it seems very compressed and "un-dynamic" to me. I would definitely recommend the JSX over the Legacy, as it is far more versatile and, to my ears, better sounding, but you really need to try both of them.

Well I can't really try it the carvin factories on the other side of the country and I've tried the JSX but its $600 more than I've got. Is there anything closer to $1,000 you could suggest?

A JSX goes for less than a grand used.

i've got the V-Twin running into the clean channel on a mesa 50 cal+. the lead channel on the 50 cal was going south for some reason. i bought it w/out testing it. got it for around $300 off the Bay.
every single time i go back to re-tweak the knobs and the sliders on those 2, the sound coming out of the speaker (heavy OD) gets better and better.
i've heard it was designed after a dual's pre-amp section... what ever, i freak'n love the thing. i'll post some clips somewhere, as soon as i get a few minutes' worth that i'm not embarassed by. hahahaha

where in florida do you live. in NYC and i see mesa stuff all the time for under $1000

just because it says mesa boogie doesn't mean it has lots of gain and can handle brutal distortion. the v-twin is not meant for that

if you want a rectifier-like distortion, buy a rectifier amp.
the pedal you want does not exist. the zombie is awful! and the mt-2 is not gonna give you the rectifier-like distortion either

why are you buying a carvin if you want a mesa? save a bit more money. you won't regret it
