Re: Favorite Recto Tone on an Album?

Anything Mark Tremonti - Creed, Alter Bridge, Tremonti.

He does mix with the Bogner a little for some added low end, but he has said that 80-90% of his tone is from a Dual when he records, Triple when he tours.

Dual Recto through a Royal Atlantic 27 1x12?

Just found one of these on my local CL, might go pick it up. I had posted earlier about selling my head and cab for a combo because of space issues going back to college, but this 90-watt 1x12 might do the trick and its the perfect size. I also have my recto running at 50 watts right now. Thoughts? ...

Re: Dual Rectifier solo head blues settings?

Thanks!

I found a pretty good one since I posted this, your settings sound nice too, but without the TS, I think I like mine more.

Presence 100%
Bass 9 o'clock
Mid 0%
Gain 3 o'clock
Treble 2 o'clock
RAW

Still adjusting, but I like where this is going.

Re: Help me build my rig.....please

So I wanna build an awesome stereo rig. I've got the amps, cabs and a few pedals and now a case with 8 rack spaces. With 2 taken up by my pedal draw. I've never done this before so I would appreciate some people options and ideas. I do know that I want the following but don't know much about what a...

Maxon OD808 vs TS808

Thoughts? I've read about this a bit, and from what I have gathered, most people actually prefer the Maxon, though most of the pros seem to use the TS. Maxon is cheaper though, which is a huge plus for a college student...

This is headed to my place...

Marshall Class 5 - Limited edition white, and apparently the block "plexi" logo is even more rare. Anyone have one of these or play through it? I am also going to pick up an ABY switch so I can try playing through a Recto and the marshall at the same time. Could be some cool tones to find between th...

Re: PRS SE vs the real thing?

The SE is a killer guitar. I've owned the Tremonti SE, Hollowbody SE, Santana SE, Singlecut SE Trem, and now I've got the simple Singlecut SE. I also own a USA Tremonti, and comparing them, you can definitely tell the difference. But for the money, you can't beat an SE. They dwarf Epi's and all the ...

Nothing like a Tremonti through a Dual Rectifier :twisted:

Re: Favorite PRS Artists?

Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy. I always thought Hiland was good too, though I am not sure if he is still an official artist anymore?

Straight Trade: 4x12 Slant cab for 4x12 Horizontal

I am not sure how people will respond to this, but I thought i'd throw it out there. I've got a 4x12 Rectifier cab but its just too big for my life situation right now. I may come back to one later on if I start playing big shows or something, but for now its overkill. I am looking to downsize to a ...

Dual Rectifier solo head blues settings?

I am going for Bonamassa-ish settings on the 3-channel solo head. Googling this stuff has not provided satisfactory results so I am taking it to the pros :D

Thanks!

Re: Need some expert advice

Thanks for the words, everyone. I ended up pulling the trigger on this last night… http://images.craigslist.org/00x0x_2zuM3dvzCnF_600x450.jpg Marshall Class 5. Capable of some gnarly blues tones apparently. I would have preferred the head, but I do like the white… I may hold onto the rectifier as ma...

Need some expert advice

I'm new here and thought this would be the best place to start. I currently have a 3 Channel Dual Rectifier Solo Head running through a Mesa slant 4x12 cab. I bought both together for a screaming deal a few years ago and voila: I had my dream rig. Mark Tremonti/Alter Bridge rank #1 for me, and that ...
