  • Bogner Uberkab vs. Mesa Recto 4x12 (Peavey, Parker Fly Deluxe)

    My new Parker has just arrived...if you haven't played one there's no point in describing how amazing this guitar is...lowest action ever, it's like you don't even have to play yourself.
    I thought the DiMarzio Tone Zone would suck, but it's actually not that bad, not even sure if I have to replace it, sounds kinda neat...

    Anyways, here's a comparison of the Mesa Recto 4x12 and the Bogner Ubercab 4x12 both are single mic'd with an sm57 (on the Bogner I mic'd the v30 only):


    Both are double tracked, I added a "combined" track in the end which is quadtracked, so it's actually out of the competition, just added it for fun

    I'm a huge fan of the MEsa's smoothness for modern tones, but if you're looking for brutal DM tones the Bogner just sounds meaner I think

      I think the Mesa one sounded a bit fuller but the bogner is definitely more aggro! Great clips by the way!

        Definately the bogner for me and some of the best metal clips around. Thick meaty sound, what is more to ask!!!
        "is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!


        short answer: no...

        long answer: no way..."

            I wouldn't say one was "WAY BETTER" than the other. Either sounds great. Very nice sounding. what were your 5150 settings?

              Thanks.

              I hit it with a Tubescreamer though, for some juicy mid bump (hence the mid-scoopage on the amp)

                  I did not like that Uberkab at all, I thought Mesa sounded much better. But the blended mix was definitely bad ass!

                    Same here

                    The UK had too much on top - not quite fizzy, but not rounded off as I like it

                      I preferred the Mesa.

                        The blend sounds best (no surprise), but I prefer the Bogner over the Mesa. The mesa sounds more scooped with a fizzier top end. The Bogner sounds fuller, and I think with a touch more treble would be better for me than the Mesa.

                            I think I liked the Mesa better as well. Strangely enough, in my band, we both use 6506+ heads but I use the Uberkab and the other guitarist uses the Mesa OS. We get the blended sound so it's perfect . But, IRL, I like my cab better. It's just punchier for some reason.

                              Both sounded bad ass in their own right

                              I've owned my Uberkab for almost 5 years and the first 2 years was a love/hate relationship with it. It sounds monsterous with most amps, but it's not as tight of a cab as most people have made it out to be when I was first inquiring about it. It's got a bit of flub to it. After all these years, I've learned to embrace it's characteristics and can make any amp sing through it. Probably the best cab I've ever owned in the 18 years I've collected gear.
