  • Laboogie Mr. Rector (Recto vs Hector)

    another NAD for me....Laboga Mr. Hector.



    I didn't love the amp the first time I tried/recorded it a couple of years ago...I'm kinda liking it now, still have a minor complaint (same as last time), but it's not a bad amp at all...



    compared to my RevF Recto it has much more gain and sounds much darker, the low mid range is also more wooly though (that's what was my main complaint back than as well, the stuffy low mids)....



    anyways, here's a little comparison (sorry, no yt video for that, hope I'll find the time to do that at some point though).



    RevF 2ch Recto



    Settings (all o'clock)

    Volume: 9:15

    Presence: 8:45

    Bass: 120

    Mid: 9:20

    Treb: 120

    Gain: 2:30



    Mr. Hector



    Settings (all o'clock)

    Master:110

    Volume: 10

    Bass: 120

    Mid: 9:20

    Treb: 10

    Gain: 12:30

    bright switch: engaged



    both amps were boosted with an od808.

    Cab: Mesa Rectifier

    Mic: single sm57

      I think they both sound pretty good. I couldn't really tell that much of a difference.

        I agree. I think the top end on the Recto is locking in with the drums more.

          both sound badass, but i think the recto sounds slightly better... Rectos usually record really nicely. Damn you run your mids low.

            Yeah, but using mid heavy pickups, boosting the mids with a tube screamer, using the mid heavy sm57, mid heavy v30 speakers etc guarantees enough mids.

            I'm not a fan of too scooped sounds myself

              Nice comparison.

              To me the recto sounds less muddy, it has more mid "presence".

                    I liked the recto.

                      hector sounded like it just needed a bit more attack. amp needs a presence.

                      OP were you and to get any usable tomes using the "mid shift"

                      that's where I failed

                        The mid shift is only usable for those cheap disto pedal like black metal tones IMO...but for that its pretty cool.

                        I agree, it's lacking a presence pot....Ethan's I'll put one in at some point

                              Nice. They both sound great. I think the recto has more clarity and a tighter low end, which I dig. I think it sounds better overall, but the laboga sounds great too. I like the slightly softer attack in the sound of the laboga, but Im not sure how Id like the feel of it in the room.
