    None of that would bother me. The fact it's a Mesa recto would bother me but not that piddly ass ****************.


    Standby and power at the same time? No biggie at all.

      The only thing I would worry about is the bias switch setting. The rest of those things you could have used to haggle the price lower.

        Rectos are biased so cold that neither turning it directly on nor running in 6L6 mode with EL34s will do anything at all. But yes they always sound like utter **************** anyways.. lol.

              That bar on the back is a heatsink? In Europe they don't have the bar, it's a metal grille (I think to do with safety laws)

                    The new Single rec's don't have that metal bar on the back of them. They have a metal mesh cage that only covers the back and sides of the two power tubes. It is held on with plastic clips and after taking it off once it was really loose when I put it back on. I took it back off for good. The weird thing is the wood blocks are there on both sides where the bar would usually attach to the amp.

                      How is the bar on the back supposed to be a heatsink? It's just a protection bar...

                      I would have talked him down a lot. But I'm no fan of Recto's.

                          Some guy advertised a Mesa Lonestar head in excellent shape. I drove more then an hour to look at it... It had magic marker dots all over the control panel where someone marked their settings along with dings and rips in the tolex. ****************. Then I'm playing it and the guy says "It comes with EL34 and 6l6 tubes and you just switch this button to choose. As he says this he starts switching the 6l6/EL64 mini toggle back and forth saying "this is with EL34s"... pause... "This is with 6L6s".... I stop playing, give him my best WHAT THE ****************? look and immediately walk out. OP, I feel your pain.

                              Recto > Orange.

                              I'd have low balled the seller.
