I can't get a lead tone I like out of them otherwise they would be perfect for me.
I know we've PM'd each other on Recto tones, but I've found a really cool lead tone in my new "MultiWatt" Rectifier.I can't get a lead tone I like out of them otherwise they would be perfect for me.
If you have a good lead tone by using a pedal on the clean channel, great. Now, just dial in the other two channels for varying degrees of overdrive and/or crunch for rhythm and leads. I never had any problem dialing my Recto in for killer overdrive sounds. That's what they're for, and now they have the added bonus of the great clean channel.I just bought the reborn 3 channel DR about 4 months ago. I mainly use the clean channel with pedals. I haven't figured out the 2nd and 3rd channels, esp with the different settings, el34's 6l6's, raw, vintage, modern....??? But I was saying in another thread how I almost traded it in for a used JCM 900 last night but the JCM sounded terrible. I didn't like it at all, but do love the settings and being able to personalize the DR. And I don't play metal exclusively but play mostly grunge, alternative, blues, hard rock stuff. Still searching for settings and how it sets with my pedalboard. I almost killed off the whole pedalboard except for eq,tuner,wah, and 1 distortion. I still am searching for a good boost or od that goes with the DR. I have the Green Rhino and I am still working with the settings on that.
mesa boogie capitalized on the fad.Yes thank goodness for that!
I wonder if that horrible fad was fostered by the Rectifier amp? Or did Mesa/Boogie just capitalise on the fab by doing mass-marketing of the Recto in association with that....stuff?
I think it was more of a fluke than anything.mesa boogie capitalized on the fad.
its been said that mesa re-voiced these amps to cater to it. whether true or not, i can't say
