gueusta's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good"

Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb Serie 2 1x12 Combo
Amp lamps made in USA
50 W with 2 6L6 power and 5 12AX7 preamp
2 channels with EQ / Gain / Reverb ... separated: 1 (clean / crunch) and the 2nd with 3 modes of distortion
1 setting Boost
1 effects loop (parallel)
1 footswicth (Canal / reverb / Boost)


The setup is relatively simple, the amp sounds immediately with any good scratch. (Les Paul Standard, ESP Horizon, Ibanez 7 string ...)
The clean sound is excellent, fairly neutral (less than typical Fender or Vox) but quite warm.
Distos are huge and cover largelment rock / metal spectrum the last 30 years ...
Note that the third mode (modern) was stronger than the first 2 general sound level.
I downloaded the manual in French, but not yet had the time to really look.
After this is not necessarily the amp I would choose for jazz and blues, but it is relatively versatile to my surprise.


I've owned a lot of amps (transistors: Marshall, Peavey) and lamps (Vox AC30, Fender Hot Rod) and for the moment it is closest to what I love to do (pop / rock / hard rock / metal ...)
With him, exit pedals distos.


I've had about a month, I tested again, it is very powerful and doing well in the mix with other instruments.
Bought used, I do not regret my purchase, I finally have the sound MESA, j'adore! The réglges for each channel, but happiness! The boost is also seen great and very effective because you can adjust the level ...
Only caveats:
- The effects loop is parallel, and suddenly does not mix well with my pedal TC Electronic Nova System. I can not find a sound that suits me fine for now (or in front or in the loop)
- Reverb, almost unusable (no adjustment)
- Knobs are not marked (chrome) suddenly, you have to have good eyes to see his régalges
- Weight: the beast is huge, we're talking about 36 kg in any case heavier than my old Hot Rod Deluxe, but more compact than my Vox AC30 was almost intransportable

Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb Serie 2 1x12 Combo
Amp Combo lamp 50 W (+ 5x12AX7 2X6L6)-Change of bias possible (6L6/EL34) via a specialist.

An HP 12 ". Possibility to connect an external 2 * 12 in addition.

2 channels each with a switch to change the sound.
Clean channel (+ "Pushed" for a crunch), Canal Vintage (+ "Modern" to boost the serious distortion in the midrange-type metal).

An effects loop with mix, dose of reverb for each channel, line out output.
2 channels with independent adjustment:
Gain, treble, mid, bass, presence, master.

Plus 2 volume, solo and output amplifier in general.

Mesa Boogie Footswitch 3-button, channel clean / vintage, reverb on / off and output / Solo comes with.

Finishing raw, simple smelling of high quality and there's robustesse.Il take the fist to perceive it.


Buttons big and easy turning.
It turns a bit and change away from the son.Pas "We put everything back and it's good ouis." Fine tuning can be done.

The documentation is very complete (also downloadable in PDF format) with a technical explanation of each reglage.En taking the time to read it in its integral we learn more about the work of the parameters.

A multitude of presets are also available to start on a good foundation.

This is an amp that is home to record.


So l claque.C is MONSTROUS!
For all that is Rock / Fusion / Metal, it's hard to beat, the ITS MESA.
The 50 Watts ISSUED enough for you to become sourd.Il would be sufficient for large scenes, with a case or 2 * 12.

Clean sound is in the vein of Fender (it mildly) with his precise, warm and powerful.

Crunch sound, which is obtained by the clear sound by pressing the switch "Pushed" is easily assayable in saturation.Du clean crunch in which the attack on the overdrive mdiator soft.

Lead is the sound when he's the best that we can get this but then merveille.Des low bass depth unbelievable given the unique HP.Un saturation standard that is perfect for music typ Metal without ever having a bouillie.Le mode "vintage" sound softer guides for use "solo" (Satch, Greg Howe).
When the mode "Modern", it emphasizes the low and high medium.C is the sound you hear on the album "Awake" by Dream Theater, the pieces of today's Neo-Metal (Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit ..). There is no need to climb to gain for the big sound, a lot alone.

It's so good that ALL the guitar parts that I will register next come out of this amp.


I bought 5 months ago and it is the amp home (work, recording, plan restaurant ...)

This is the amp do it all, the receiver of trust or may be asked a lot (and does).

I have an ENGL Savage head "special edition" with 4 * 12, also of high quality and the passage of an amplifier without the other is mal.Le Rectoverb sounds of times better than the ENGL, with for the clean and some rhythmic Metal or Mesa-Boogie sounds more accurate.

I tried a combo RIVERA 212, not enough saturation.1 Mesa-Boogie Nomad, a sound too small, no peche.1 LINE 6 Vetta, provides fun ...

The only "problem" is the price ... 2950.Pour my part, I found it on occasion as new 2150.La is interresting but few people break away from the gear (the rationale 9 / 10).

In conclusion:
-1 Amp VERY high end quality with a typical range of sounds, vast, that excels in quality of the saturations.
-Standard settings but extremely precis.Basses emerging from beyond the grave.
-A very high reliability and robustness LAID for difficult situations.
-The impossibility to control via MIDI system.
-1 Astronomical price (justification, however, if you want sound).

Config for the sound, I can say ke the equalization is very effective and very accurate in the manual and they explain the various settings.


The sound gets the ke is very powerful!! Standards are low. but beware it is a amp "scene" where I do the mistake of buying it to play in moi.En loudness incroyablechez mooooi I played it at least and you knob decal el master of his hair and increases its clear the way considerable.les are very clear! and the distortion is of the mesa (the same groups ke current metal). I played a Start with a simple microphone above the sound I liked, but one day I try it a sg with active EMG pickups and you cry your mother.


I got it for a year before selling it to buy for less puissant.Je joined the commentary of the person introduced ki comment on the f30 it is useless to have a tube amp if you can not pull in . but if a person ki often scenes of big dot this amp be good

Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb Serie 2 1x12 Combo
See description of heads ....




I used with the three guitars: Gibson Les Paul Custom, an esp Kirk Hammett (modified micro seymour HS6 and sh2 split with the ball ...) and finally an ibanez universe that I've also equipped with Seymour (HS6 and always sh2) and two volumes with split ... (no tone, it is useless!: D)
well all this together, it sounds serious!
the amp is truly excellent, both for clean sounds, and for saturated. sound distortion is really enormous, and the clear sound with the reverb is beautiful (the guitars are for qqchose even when ....)


I have the last 3 years, after having had a single head for 1 year (with baffle marshall 1960) and a dual three-channel (two years) was always broken and really sounded worse than the single and a triple. ...
and many of these amps, the sound that I have favorite is the combo, because the hp is better that a baffle marshall ... the single and triple heads had also sound crazy, but not emphasized by the speaker unfortunately ...
d love to see a head with a single or triple mesa cabinet (or other, as long as that s not a cardboard baffle marshall ...), it must be the madness!
because c is true that when you push the combo to record the sound n is not very accurate because the baffle is open ... ca drool a little difficult to have a sound that is cut short when the strings are locked between two agreements ....
by playing against in my apartment with a reasonable volume, c is the big, big shot!
