Re: Re-tubed my Mini Rectifier, more useable now

I'm sure it sounds awesome, since you just doubled the volume of the amp! :lol:

Re: Is Bias Mod Hype?

The thing about Stilettos that no one ever talks about is how tolerant they are of impedance mismatches. The manual actually addresses it as another tone shaping tool. I've found that my series 2 sounds best when I run the 4ohm tap into an 8ohm cab; it just seems to be hotter, with more girth.

Re: New Stiletto Ace Combo - Stoked- 2 guitar player band

I play in a metal thrashy yet melodic metal band (with an actual singer). I play a Stiletto II, and the other guitarist has a Triple Rec. They sound AWESOME together. You just have to remember that the Stiletto likes mids, so keep the mid knob around noon, and scoop out the Recto more. They'll compl...

Re: Mini Recto Knobs, can't see position!!!!

Am I the only one that doesn't need to see the knob position? I don't ever look that closely; I just turn it until it sounds good. Years of playing on dark stages, I guess.

Re: Mini Recto Crackling

Do you have extra preamp tubes? I'd try replacing V1 first, and the driver tube second, since they are used by every channel and mode. If that doesn't fix it, then try the power tubes.

I'm assuming you have tried a different cable and guitar. ;)

Re: Volume Friendly alternatives to DR

I'm going to have to call BS on not being able to get great tone out of a Mini Recto at a reasonable volume, since I do exactly that all the time. My cover band practices in a townhouse, so volume level is a big concern. The drummer uses electronic and hand percussion, and we don't mic vocals. I'm r...

Re: What is the most coveted & collectable Recto? ever.

It really depends on what sound you looking for, the 92-93 recto is better for leads where the revision G and later are better for rhythm, honestly any one is a good choice, but if I was you I would find an RKI, best of everything. +1 That Rev C you had sounded absolutely amazing for leads, but it ...

Re: Solo Boosting an MR

I use an Electro-Harmonix LPB-1 clean boost and a MXR Small Stone delay in the loop. I've got a project box with a switchable buffered loop that I step on for leads, and an A/B switch to change channels on the amp.

Re: Mini rec new tubes

Mesa is notorious for biasing hotter on their EL-84 amps than any of their other models. I would never put something hotter than what Mesa uses into the amp. I just stick with the Mesa tubes, since I haven't found anything that I like any better without going into the ludicrous price realm. After ab...

Re: Effects for the Mini Recto.. delay and reverb

The only problem with the One Spot is that certain pedal combinations cause impressive amounts of noise. My Peterson tuner and X2 pedal wireless don't like each other at all, but they could coexist with a Boss power supply. Teese wahs don't care for them much, either. I've also found that MIDI switc...

Re: Effects for the Mini Recto.. delay and reverb

have you considered installing an Allums mod kit on your TS7? I was surprised that the TS7 sounds as good as it does, and the mod improved it noticeably. Hard to decide, though, cuz the "LOK" style pedals have much smaller, more fragile components and pcb inside, they are much more difficult to wor...

Re: Fly Board: looking for a pedal to sound close to my Dual

Are you at least guaranteed a tube amp? Usually, gigs providing a backline rent either Marshalls, 5150s, or Dual Recs, often in that order of preference. You really don't have to think that hard to get a great FOH sound with any of those amps, so I'd say just make sure you have a couple of different...

Re: Cabinet for Mini - revisiting

I use mine with a vertical recto 2x12 and a 4x10 with good results. My experience has been that you need a lot of air volume in the cabinet or the amp sounds anemic. I couldn't find a 1x12 that I liked with it, though I did not try the Dyne/RA wide 1x12. I tried it with the MR 1x12, a full recto 1x...

Re: Effects for the Mini Recto.. delay and reverb

This pedalboard is geniuse. I'm interested to something like a switch to activate a couple pedals in the loop. got delay in the loop but need a clean boost I guess to get a louder solo tone. You think that would work? Have an OCD out front but it's not much of a volume boost for solos. Want somethi...
