I have never played a Triple Recto, the cleans are not bad per se, but they are not outstanding by any measure. Using your guitars volume helps.

They're just not amazing. On the +/II versions they're certainly usable for the hard rock/metal genre.

Would I be better off getting a JSX?

Grand really. Add a little chorus and who's gonna know anything when it's cranked, miced and mixed in a live show? Just dont record clean tones with it. THEN ya'll notice they're lifeless.

The JSX's cleans are a fair bit nicer than the 6505's but it's NOWHERE near as brutal in the high gain voicing department. If you're playing stuff as heavy as it gets then I guess that you're playing drop tuned tremolo picking stuff - I'd settle with the 6505, the cleans are by no means unusable.

K then the JSX is out.

Its down to
A Mesa Rectifier(a triple, dual or single, rectoverb, or trem-o-verb)
A Mesa Mark IV
A Mesa F Series

5150/6505 has, by far the most gain, and the heaviest sound. As a player who goes Dream Theatre at the heaviest, I found having the gain on 6 was almost too much.

Hence, it's right for you. 6 Gain stages. 6, thats right. More gain than any recto.
