Mesa Rectifier: ultimate 2ch vs 3ch comparison

So there's a ton of talk about the differences between the 2ch and the 3ch Rectifiers and their different revisions... but are those heads REALLY as different as the forum hype wants you to believe? Here's a back to back comparison of my RevF 2 channel and my 3 channel heads (pre Multi-Watt). These ...

Re: Blackface Recto Triplet

same EQ on each of them, rather generic settings...Bass and treb at noon, mids and pres a tad lower.

Blackface Recto Triplet

damn, I'm still in love with Rectifiers and have just re-tolexed one of them, so I thought it's time for a little audio-visual shootout again ;) your task is to pick your favorite recto (sound and looks). these are the amps in the shootout: http://www.lsd-tonstudio.de/sonstiges/blackface/3BF.JPG sex...

Re: Rectifier 2ch comparison (RevF, RevG, Rackto, Schumacher ..)

dammit, looks like I forgot to tell you what's what, lol.

here you go:

1: RevF Head (Schumacher)
2: RevG Head (Schumacher)
3: RevG Rackmount Recto (Mercury Magnetics)


interesting to see that the poll results on another board were completely different from these :)

Re: Mercury Magnetics is it worth it ?

I have 3 2ch Recs (all european voltage=australian voltage). 1 RevG with Schumacher Trannies (EU model) 1 RevF with Schumacher Trannies (US model converted to 230 with aftermarket PT) 1 RevG Rack with Mercury Trannies (US model converted to 230, completely with MM trans) I'd say if you got an older ...

Re: Rectifier 2ch comparison (RevF, RevG, Rackto, Schumacher ..)

no AxeFX of course, all real amps. yep, I like 1 best, too, followed by 3 i like them in this order 1 3 2 clip one has the most clarity and presence with a little more attack. clip two was flatter sounding clip three was darker but had more saturation and some sizzle so i guess your gonna tell us it...

Rectifier 2ch comparison (RevF, RevG, Rackto, Schumacher ..)

Yo, I've just recorded a little sample-clip through my main 3 Rectifiers I thought you might be interested in hearing it yourselves, the dials were the same on all the clips of course, EVERTHING at noon but the Master (9:00). Tubes were rather similar also (chinese in v1 and mixture of Tung Sol and ...

Re: RevF Recto vs. RevG Rackto (Clips)

as i told you: if you ever want to sell your 19" recto, let me know. ;) not gonna happen..at least not very soon ;). but yeah, IF I'm gonna sell it I'll drop you a line. I've just put new tubes ( =C= ) in my RevF...sounds much better now than with the old JJ. But I still can't really decide which o...

Re: RevF Recto vs. RevG Rackto (Clips)

yeah, but happens all the time to all of us...how often have I tweaked a knob until it sounded right, only to find out it was in bypass all the time, lol...we hear what we expect to hear ;) I do actually think clip B sound quite a bit darker and less fizzy, also less 3D though. A is the RevF Dual an...
