    Is there a pedal that can produce a Mesa Recto tone? My little Roland Cube can cop that tone great, but I don't think I can bring it to a gig :D In fact, it seems digital modelers are great at this.

    Seriously, is there such a pedal?

    If you think the Cube can do a "great" Recto tone then yes, a LOT of pedals can do that, starting with the Boss Metal Zone ;)

    I actually had one, but didn't like it. I did have a Keeley Modified Boss Distortion that sounded close, but that's more Marshall like.

    Like Choco said, check out the Triple Wreck. Weehbo Morbid Drive is also a great hi-gainer you might want to investigate.

    Second the Triple Wreck... It does the Recto thing great and has a pretty nice fuzz/boost setting that is surpisingly useful.

    The Dr. Boogey and Dual Resistafier are great choices as well, from what I can tell on the videos. The DS is even two channels, which could be a very nice feature.

    About a year ago, I went through a similar search, and after demoing some pedals at GC and watching hours of videos on You Tube, I opted for the Triple Wreck. FWIW.

    :rockin

    Good luck... there are alot of great options out there.

    I like the fact that it also has a rhythm/lead switch.

    are you plugging into my roland amp t play or something else?

    IMHO qualtiy distorion pedals in solid state amp= terrible

    modelling is a much better way to go

    The Triple Wreck does a good recto tone. Brian Wampler is very good at voicing pedals to sound like specific amps. I also like the Recto tone on my Micro Cube!

    I also have a Cube and the Recto tone is really great - this prompted the thread.

    Owned it before. It was a good preamp pedal. Make sure you plug it in your effects loop to really hear it's potential.

    Did you replace it something else similar?
