    Recto - Can it be made tight and not fizzy?

    Mushy bottom fizzy top is the problem we all know they have.

    Is there a way to make a Recto really really tight, and loose the fizz?

    I know Voodoo can fix this, but can it be done with pedals and settings as well?

    Like boosting up front and an EQ in the loop?

    This has been a great thread. I've got my Single Recto out again and am experimenting with it.

    For tightening them up, do you guys prefer using a Clean Boost (like my OD-9), or an EQ pedal to just cut the lowest frequencies, or does 1 way have an advantage over the other?

    I'm definitely like the results I'm getting with both setups, I obviously just have to run the amp's gain at around 10:30 when Boosting instead of 10 when I use an EQ pedal.

    When using the Boost pedal or an EQ pedal, now I can run the amp's Bass up around 120 now too (since I'm cutting the lowest lows out), which should give me a good, thick, low mid emphasis. Whereas before, I only ran the Bass around 100.


    Rectifiers should all come with a maxon overdrive pedal, it's an absolute need for that amp (for tight metal) IMO for SURE. an EQ is a great thing to have also. Once I get my roadster I'm going to be broke so hopefully I can get some cash for noise suppressor and overdrive (have to sell my ISP decimator to fund for the roadster... but it doesn't need one without an overdrive)

    Could it be your guitar and speakers and settings not giving you the clarity you want? I dont have my recto anymore, but always thought it delivered in the clarity department.

    Well, after a couple more hours of experimenting, I decided I personally liked the Single Recto much better with just the EQ pedal in front, simply cutting out the lowest frequencies. It made it tighter with alot less mud. It actually sounds great!

    The only problem is, my Sig X sounds just like it the way I've got it dialed in, but with even more clarity and warmth, and the flexibility of many other tones in addition to that. So, even though I'm finally getting my Recto to sound really good now, I'm still going to sell it.

    All Recto owners should definitely experiment with running an EQ in front or a Boost - it really makes them sound so much better IMO!

    Try rolling back on the guitar's volume. That helps to smooth out the fizz and tighten up the lower end .


    I have better luck just unplugging the guitar... oke:

    Um, foo fighters has ALWAYS been recto.


    Sorry, I've never been a big fan. It is not that I don't like them, I just never really got hooked .

    From what I have heard, that comes to a surprise. Well, sort of the Recto was the amp of the 90's.
