    I want the dual rectifier sound without having to get a head and a cab. Is there a way to get close with a pedal? V-twin? Rectifier recoding pre??

    I have a Fender Deluxe reverb RI and have good clean and pretty good marshall dirt with pedals but now I want Dual rec!


    thanks guys

    The V-Twin is a pretty great pedal. I had one years ago and remember it having a butt load of gain. Will it replace a Mesa Rectifier head going at full steam...? No, but it's a fun pedal and a nice replacement for having to spend the money for a Recto head.

    I haven't seen a V-Twin in years. Do you have a line on one? It's worth trying out. It's definitely all Mesa Boogie!!!!

    hmm. I didn't like the V-twin at all.

    I've seen single recs go for $750. Great sounding amp, and cheaper than the recto recording preamp.

    what is the difference between single and dual?

    I really enjoy the guitar sound of foo fighters and Dada and they both use rectifiers..

    the Single Rectifier Rectoverb , lets you switch back and forth between the 6L6 /El34 tube options.
    50 watts VS 100. no rectifier tubes in a single either. I find the singles to sound tighter than the new duals (the 2 channel duals kick ass), but you get 2 channel, a clean and a dirty, no channel cloning either. the Rectoverb also has the solo boost on the pedal which is really a "Nice to have" if you play lead.
    Vintage mode on the Rectoverb is pretty sweet.

    Have you always been able to switch between tube types in the single?
