The Recto is definitely a tweaker amp, which I actually don't like. But once you've found the settings that work just keep them there. I've found that finding a balance between the Mid and Treble key to getting that "cut" that some people say the Recto lacks on the high gain settings. Don't over use the Mid,..the midrange sweep on this amp is definitely in the low-mid spectrum so using a good amount of Treble can help to emphasize the midrange much better. Also, using EL34's helps a bunch,..I'm running SED's.
(D) Loves the C9 pre's:
This amp really likes the C9 preamp tubes and IMO sounds best with them, especially in V1 and V2.
Yeah, I like my Tremoverb with EL34's and C9's.
