I don't need to Bias the replacement tubes do I?
For the power section you will have to get Mesa tubes, as for the pre-amp section they can be of any brand

Re: Mini Rectifier tube suggestions

Ive moved to Ruby 12AX7 HG+ in V1 and V2. V3-V5 is stock. I find them good. Supposed to be tested for low noise and microphonics. Supposedly these are what Deizel use in the V1 and V2 of their amps. Personally, I never hear a difference between a tungsol, JJ, sovtek, or shungang. They all sound the...

This is correct, new versions do not have the switch and the FX loop is automatically off if there is nothing inserted into their 1/4 loop sockets.

Re: MARK FIVE 25 TONE SETTINGS THREAD

This is a very nice thread !!! I have been a Mark V 25 user from about two years now and I am still surprisingly finding different sweet spots and hidden tones. I have also noticed the CH1 Crunch channel is a wonder.... IMO and to my taste on CH1 you can find better metal tones than the ones offered...

Re: Mini recto tones using maple fingerboards

Will try to play with the presence knob, thanks

Mark V VS JP2C

It may be already a topic describing details about the JP2C amp but still I would think it will be a good idea to hear comments from real and current users of both amps.

Can the owners share their experiences, one vs the other?

Re: Are good cables REALLY worth the extra dosh?

They are definitely not necessary but YES, they do make a difference, even though it may be classified as a subtle difference, and many times hardy noticeable for most players. This type of difference can be more noticed with experienced ears, and definitely easier to catch for those classified as t...

Mini recto pre amp tubes swap recommendations?

Hi there guys, Can any of you share some of your pre amp tube combinations tested and tried on any of the rectifier family amps and what you were able to achieve tone wise?, I would really like to try some other brands than stock mesa’s. My preference is to target warm darker tones, definitely not b...

Re: Rectoverb 25 vs mini rectifier, help me choose!

Same thing bro, just and obvious difference; once does have a tube for spring reverb purposes and the other does not.

It will be a matter of your particular preference, as you can always add reverb from any external pedal of your choice if desire later on.

Re: On my new mini recto there's no fx loop switch on the ba

New mini rectos do not have an fx loop switch on the back; mesa eliminates them to make it more practical. If you do not plug in cables on those inputs, the fx loop is off. And vice versa, If you do plug in cables on those inputs, the fx loop will be engaged, as simple as that. I have confirmed my s...
