Re: Downgrading from a Mark V to a Rectoverb 25 Head...

If you're just looking for lower power at home, running your V in 10 watt mode across the board is going to be lower power than the Recto 25.

I've owned both and the V is a lot more valuable to me.

Re: Help with TC-50 Triple Crown and MIDI

Hey buddy, It's easier to just put together a bunch of settings you like and then assign them to a specific Program Change number. The basic process is: 1. Use your controller (your Rocktron here) to send a Program Change number to your amp on the channel you have your amp set to. 2. Get the amp set...

Re: Dumb question, but why does it feel like Recto's "Need" a boost or OD to sound best?

I always figured that it was a way to allow the amp to cover a few more genres. Without a boost, in spongy mode, it's great for hard rock like Queen. WITH a boost and full power it's ready to go for brutal, tight tracking metal.

I like using it both ways a lot.

Can confirm. My purple stripe Mark III S is a little fire breather.

Re: MK III purple stripe combo

I wanted to try and pull this amp into the present day, so I ordered an updated head shell and new Mark V-style knobs for it. The IIIs have a lot more real estate for the controls, so I went with the large ones. Here’s how it turned out. May not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I love it: https://cdn-s...

Re: MK III purple stripe combo

If you want c+ alternative and can't find a Mark III with the 105 transformer the 60 watt III's are a great option. That is really interesting to hear. I love my 60 watt Mark III, but has there been something in particular recognized about the 60 watt models? When I compare my purple stripe S vs my...

I did (III+) and it's totally worth it. Especially if you like to play in the "in between." I think it's quite close to a IIC, transformer notwithstanding. 60W is a different transformer anyway.

That's good to hear. What stripe is yours?

Re: Lack of Low-end on channel 3?

Actually kinda yes. The recto series is one of those plug in and play amps. You get a recto tone no matter how you set it. The Mark series are definitely not in that plug in and drive category. If that makes recto users mad so be it. I am actually not dissing a good amp(not my thing), but merely po...

Well, uh, you know. Throw it on the ground:

(make sure the speaker cabinet is directly on the floor. use mark iv mode if you want it to have a heavier sound, as iv has PULL DEEP hard-wired on)

The clips sound good! Did you have Mike B. do the III+ mod?
Nope, I never really thought it needed it. Kinda thinking about having it done to my blue stripe, someday. Maybe.

Re: MK III purple stripe combo

I recently had a chance to buy the Purple stripe head I demoed previously and sent it back to Mike B for an overhaul and the R2 mod. The amp - a 60 watt head with no reverb or graphic eq - is almost certainly one of my favorite amps now. The settings I have it on are typical (volume way up, treble a...
