Can the single rec do stuff like Killswitch Engage, Unearth, All that remains kinda stuff without a OD pedal?

If not I plan on putting a Maxon OD-808 in front of it.

yes. maxon OD9 would be even better though.

Whats the difference?

I heard Adam and Joel of KSE helped design the pedal.

You clearly haven't even played it, but you're willing to shell out over a grand for it?
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.

They didn't help design the pedal. Maxon used to make the TS-9 (now by Ibanez). The OD-9 and OD-808 are basicly like older (and better) versions of the TS-9/TS-808.

I would think the amp would do just fine. You have to be careful though, don't overdrive the preamp. Once you find the sweet spot of the gain knob, you will be set.

If he doesn't like it he can sell on ebay and get his money back. There's a huge advantage of used - easy to make the money right back so it's not completely necessary to try it out.

Agreed. I could sell my Dual rec for about as much as I paid for it.

overdriving the preamp is how you get distortion, especially on high gain amps like the recto, why would you not do that?

You missed my point. You can drive a preamp hard, but when you get to the point of overdriving it, the sound becomes muddy and also microphonic. For example, try turning the gain on channel 3 to 3 oclock or higher. Tell me how it sounds, then back it down some and you will understand what I mean. Somewhere around 2 oclock or less is the sweet spot on those amps.

Tbh, I have noticed that a bit on my Roadster. Not like I use that much gain anyway. But I get my modern tone at about 1 o clock.

Yep! Even in the owners manual they tell you to be careful about using too much gain. You can fry out your preamp tubes pretty quickly. It's not hard to tell when you are at the sweet spot and when you have gone past it. It sounds really tinny and crappy when you overdrive the preamp.

Very true. I use about 50 percent of the gain on my Modern setting. It sounds harsh when you overdrive the preamp. But, I cranked the power amp the other day and it was one of the most beautiful sounds ever.

I bet it was. I will never CRANK my master. I only have a 100W cab, so cranking it could blow my speakers. I would say about 3oclock would be about as high as I would go. Unless I pulled tubes, then I would run it wide open.
