inherently a rectified tube amp, utilizes the rec stages to "process" the current to be more effectively used in all the preamp and power stages.

the only draw back is that a recifier tube SLAGGS the current draw, wich is why rec. amps are often related to the most commonly desired "violin like sustain" effect that it produces

ive said it before and ill say it again, rec amps are way overrated, and the mesa's ive tried and heard, were nothing like a well built regular tube amp
for sustain purposes and more of a chording tone shape it is pretty much up there with the best amps made, but rec. amps have a way less responce time between fast notes...and they blend in too much

and for palm muting, shesh dont get me started i personaly hate the sound the mesa rec. amps have under palm muting teq.
Well, John Petrucci seems to get plenty of "clarity between fast notes" with a dual rec, or road king, or any rectifier series amp from Mesa. When your playing has reached a point where you're so fast the mesa can't keep up, let me know as I'll buy your insturctional video. Perhaps it's your technique that's lacking clarity.
