I just assaulted my eardrums with this amp that just arrived from a GP'er and I have to say, not bad at all. I've heard plenty of so-so reviews about the clean tone but I found it tweakable and quite pleasant and fun to play. So far (as usual) my favorite areas are the fully pushed "clean" channel and the 2nd channel at low to mid gain. Oddly enough, the "modern" voicing seems to be my favorite. I was afraid I'd be stuck with that dark Mesa chugga chugga but so far I've found string definition on chords and a very bright tone. Anyone else have good experiences with these amps? It seems to match up better with a Fulldrive than it does with my OCD. I generally gravitate towards Marshall tones but I seem to be dialing in some decent Warren Haynes SLO grind that I was not expecting at all. Again-very in your face which is entirely the opposite of what I thought I'd get out of a Mesa Recto. It's not the Marshall tone I'm used to but it definitely works in its own way. Tough to say after playing it for an hour and a half but I think I'll be keeping this around (for a while anyway--we all know how that goes). Thanks Chad--hope you are bonding with the Strat!
