??

are those the 2 channel heads? If so, those would be the Rev G ones.

Ask Fluff, he loves them.

Mine is a Rev F and it is so balanced sounding. I hear the Rev Gs are almost identical, but a bit looser and 'bigger' sounding. If you want a creamier and more musical / full sounding gain tone, you'll love it. The Orange Channel is the best kept 'secret' on the amp. The voicing is slightly different than the Red channel so when the Orange Channel is set to 'vintage high gain' you get a great elastically lead tone and when you swap it to modern, it is somehow warmer sounding. The amp was really designed as a high gain head, with the Orange channel being for lead and the Red channel being for rhythm. Guys run into problems when they try to use the 'clean' channel for a clean tone and then get the Red channel to do both lead and crunch.

If I ever gig with the Dual Rectifier, I will definitely run my Electra Dyne for cleans. 'Nuff said!

Yeah I do indeed love my Rev. G. Certainly my favorite Recto ever made.

PM sent!

Word.

I was rather fond of all 3 of my Rev. Gs....especially the last one, which was the oldest I've owned. :(
