Re: noob looking for recto recording/simul-class 2:90 info

I have Recto preamp with 2:50 power amp. I use BB Preamp as a clean boost in a modern mode for a rhythm tone. For a lead sound I use OCD with gain half way and even volume. Of course with nive stereo delay from G-major. That way I get nice lead tone and crushing crunch sound as well. All is controll...

Re: 2:50 Powertubes, which pair for channel A?

I went to see local tech who said that tubes are AABB. Side by side for one channel, if amp is 2x50w. That way I put them and sounds fine.

Mesa 2:50 tube positioning?

Hi there!

Greetings from icy Finland. Does someone have a chart of 2:50 powertubes and how they are paired? I use power amp only in mono and I've bought two Mesa 6L6 tubes for Channel A, so where to put them? Thanks for the answer!

Re: New Mesa/Boogie Rack Product Ideas

I haven't read all of this topic, but some new rack gear would be awesome. I have Rectifier preamp and although it have taken some beating here on Boogie board, I like it very much! :D But if new TriAxis with a "real" Rectifier circuit would come up, I would surely buy one. But this day U cannot get...

Re: A request for your sagely advice on the Recto Preamp

I use booster for more gain on Recto Pre. EH nano boost works fine. But maybe RC booster could be better. For solos BB Preamp or OCD is a must. I use these with live outs to power amp and cabinet. Enough ToT tone for me! :D

Re: volume differences in modern/vintage mode

What power amp do you have or are you playing direct? I believe that is explained in the manual: If you have 2:100 Recto power amp, then you can use Modern -mode trigger switch to remove negative feedback from the power amp. Otherwise there is some volume drop. Separate volume controls become active...

Re: Roadster needs more gain!!

I have Rectifier preamp/2:50 and use BB Preamp to get that lead tone out of Vintage mode. Rocktron Patchmate Loop8 is great for selecting different pedals in front of amp and switching channels. My pedals and tones: Clean channel + OCD = British crunch Vintage mode + BB Preamp = Lead tone Modern mod...

Re: Recto Recording Preamp

I'm glad to hear you like the sound of the Recto Pre.. I'm very interested in trying to use EL34 power tubes with Stereo2:50 and Rectifier preamp. Has any of you tried that? What kind of difference does it make? I've read that clean channel gets worse and second channel modern mode gets better. Is t...

Re: Recto Recording Preamp

I had JMP-1 for years until I sold it for Recto Pre. I'm still thinking about whether to use multiple preamps in my rack, but there's side effect that rack gets bigger and bigger... with a looper&pedalshelf it would be only 8 units big. I had to carry it myself around. JMP-1 was good for that Marsha...
