    Hello

    I am thinking about the Mark V mini and the Rectoverb mini.

    Which one of these would do a better job at getting to Sound Gardens sound from Super Unknown until now?

    Rectoverb. Superunknown was recorded with Dual Rectifiers, I believe. Since then, Kim Thayil most had used Tremoverbs, though he recently had been blending them with the Electra Dyne. For Down On The Up Side, Thayil used a Mesa Maverick, but I think a Recto will get you closer to that tone than a Mark.
