I got a Mesa Triple Recto Blackface a few months ago. That thing is pretty evil. Tight and huge. Definitely a good Recto.
Also, I have a JCM800 2203 clone I built a year or 2 ago. Anyways, I decided to ditch the other inputs and wire in another tube stage a few weeks ago. It is a little hissy now, but it easily has the gain of a 5150. It does awesome older Fear Factory tones, and can even get an Appetite for Destruction type tone with fatter pickups.
Ive been playing those 2 amps mostly lately. Of course, I still have the other amps in my sig also.
Had a SLP modded by Mike Fortin, pure hotrod marshall that is silly quiet due to the dc heaters and a ton of tone options. Love it.
I want a recto someday just because
I need to play with the hiss. It was fine before I cranked the gain way up.
I got rid of all the tone options to have 1 bad-ass tone I not a huge fan of a million options.
I have thought about getting a Recto for a long time, but always had a hate/love thing with them. Many of them sound horrible to me, but the one I got it awesome. I almost cant make it sound mushy and saggy!
