Re: Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

Well......... After owning the amp for a month, I have this to say: Clean Channel: This channel sounds pretty amazing, even next to my 1970 Twin Reverb. I really hated the super low headroom though. I added a 1uf Cathode Bypass cap to V1B. This is the 3rd gain stage for the clean channel. There was ...

Re: WTB Mesa combo cabinet for a Studio Caliber

I have one that you can just have. You have to pay shipping though, which will be about $100. I can ship it Parcel Post for a lot less, but it takes a few weeks. I haven't been receiving emails from the forum, so shoot me an email andy at amps - tubes dot com It does not have a speaker or reverb tan...

Re: Need to build a snake for a pedal board

How many cables do you need in your snake? Do you need midi? Are you using 4CM (4 Cable Method)? I have a few spares that I'd like to get rid of. I don't mind changing the ends for you either. I don't mind giving you a good price either. They are just hanging in my music room and need a good home! S...

Re: Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

I tried other speakers, but the cabinet seems to be the dominant factor. I'm curious what you find, though. I went to a MV:25, then a Shiva, then a RA100, then Mark V (which I hated), then back to the RA100, and now an Archon 100. I'm thinking of getting a Single Rec Rectoverb or Solo head as well ...

Re: To buy a DC-10 or not...

The DC is definitely not going to sound like a Marshall, but it is made a million times better. Better parts, better engineering, better internal layout. I had 3 TSL100's before I got my first Mesa. I actually traded a TSL122 for a Dual Rectifier (first Mesa amp) and was sold ever since. Tone is sub...

Re: Need new tubes for my Roadster

Doug's Tubes has a good "Cocktail" for a Mesa amp. It sounds really good in my DC-3.
I think I used the same set in my old Roadking when I had it.

Re: Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

:mrgreen: I think it needs Cannabis......err.....that is...I mean......HEMP! :mrgreen: I bet a Cannabis Rex would do wonders for the ROV. It turned my DC-3 into a keeper. I'm thinking: DC-3 & ROV 25 in stereo I've got an old Digitech GSP1101 (sounds better than a G-Major 2, G-System, etc., once you ...

Re: Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

1x12 Filmore was stiffer than John Holmes. :lol: :lol: :lol: I saw one of his movies when I was a kid. There wasn't enough blood in his body to make that thing work right...... I recommend you read my old reviews on the RV25 combo. It's very boxy-sounding. I suspect you could do better if you put i...

Re: Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

Thanks guys! I don't like the EL84 sound of the Rectoverb. I tried it in a store and it was a miserable and embarrassing experience for me, because I didn't feel inspired at all on Channel 2. That seemed strange, since I'm so Pro-Recto. I know some of the others like it, so maybe I just wasn't lucky...

Re: Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

Forgot to mention...... I'm currently playing in a 4 piece cover band. I'm the only guitar player. We use acoustic drums. I have been using a 20/20 power amp and Triaxis and it is the perfect volume. I think I run the power amp volumes around 9:30-10:00 and it is loud We cover everything from James ...

Rectoverb 25 combo - Does it sound small?

I'm selling my Maverick 1x12 combo to buy something a bit bigger sounding. I am incredibly interested in the Rectoverb 25. I have owned just about every Boogie amp up to the newest small amps from the last few years. It seems to me that most of them have an odd mid range under tone that I just can't...

Formula Preamp with Footswitch and Cable!

I just bought this preamp. I really like it, but I like my Triaxis more. I need to sell it and pay off some credit card debt! I did the "Andrew Mod" to the Formula. I have to say, there is a pretty big difference over the stock circuit! It sounds and feels much more open now. I guess "Organic" would...
