Re: Rectoverb 25 - How to get the Reverb Tank out

Hey guys...little surprised at the lack of responses???
But I was able to work the tank out (had to separate it from the plywood backing.
One of the wires had gotten loose and had to be re-soldered.
All is good!!!

Re: Rectoverb 50 vs Modern rectoverb 25

I remember loving the 50 and thinking 2 things...the clean channel was a little dry and the amp was WAYYYYY too heavy weight wise. When I first tried the mini-rec, I was taken back by how good the gain sounded, especially at lower volumes. The clean channel felt more alive as well. There's no questi...

Rectoverb 25 - Reverb Footswicth question

Trying to troubleshoot my reverb issue and was curious if:
a - the supplied footswitch works with the reverb (listed as Ext Reverb on the back panel)
b - if it does, should the light go on and off? (it stays off)

Rectoverb 25 - How to get the Reverb Tank out

Hey guys, just picked up a rec 25 and the reverb doesn't work. Suggestions were to check the reverb tank and check the V6 tube.
Didn't have a good 12AX7 laying around so I thought I'd see if the reverb was connected correctly.
Having a heck of a time trying to get it out...any tips?

Loss of Power and 5 Watt mode distorted

Hey guys...have an express 5:50 1x12 combo and the title says it all. In 5 watt mode the amp is distorted and has nearly no volume. The 50 watt mode sounds okay but isn't overly loud at half volume..although it is relatievly loud. I tried 2 sets of power tubes with no luck. I will say that neither s...

Re: Trem O Verb tube favorites?

so regarding Tverb tubes... what do people think of the current Mesa 6L6s... 440s I think? mine recently arrived with EL34s and I'd like to get a set of 6l6s... GREAT amp btw!! I just put in what is supposed to be a relatively new set into my Rectoverb and didn't care for the amount of saturation c...

The F-50 cleans were better than the Rectoverb but the gain channel was a no-contest in the other direction. If gain is more important (which it is for me) the ROV combo was better. And it's not necessarily the amount of gain, just the texture and fullness.

Loud Pop when switching from Standby

Hey guys, All of a sudden my Rectoverb is making a loud POP when I switch from standby to the on position . At first I thought it was my delay unit but I removed everything except guitar to amp and the noise still exists. There are times it does it when I switch TO standby but it always makes the po...

Re: Out of Production amps

From what I remember the tremoverb was a 100 watt combo...I always thought that it defeated the purpose of having a combo to make it 100 watts. Too bulky/heavy, too many tubes, too much power. Everyone seems to like the sound however! 8) Regarding the other 2.. :?: That's silly. Nearly the first Me...

Mod the loop to serial and you'll be fine. I just did that with mine and it sounds much better and works great with my GT-8 I just got. I love the Rect-o-verb amps. Simplicity and tone at a great price. Do you lose the solo function when you mod to serial? No - Solo function still works fine. Inter...

I can't imagine that it would change the Solo function...all Solo is (according to the schematics that I've seen) is an extra pot that's placed between the Master control and the ground, and able to be switched into the circuit at will. I can't see how it's in any way connected to the FX loop. here...

Hmmm... i haven't actually tested that, but I wouldn't think you would. I'll try it and see. The reason I ask is that one of the Mesa techs insinuated that switching to a serial loop has its own inherent issues and I thought he mentioned that the solo feature was no longer available after making th...

Re: Out of Production amps

Tremoverb was also a head unit, came in all flavors and before the roadking it was the flagship of the rectifier series. [/quote] Good point about the head (although I've NEVER seen one :D ) But I think you answered the question if the roadking became the new "Flagship" More channels, more tones, m...

Re: Out of Production amps

something i've always wondered, why did Mesa stop making the tremoverb? the heartbreaker? the blue angel? I always wanted to get my hands on a tremoverb From what I remember the tremoverb was a 100 watt combo...I always thought that it defeated the purpose of having a combo to make it 100 watts. To...
