recto cab

    Mesa Mark V 1x12 Combo with Recto 2x12 stereo speaker cabinet. The Mark V is in excellent condition. The Recto cab has its share of marks on it, but nothing major. The Recto cab needed to have the grille cloth replaced so I also picked up a Boogie logo from Mesa to have it match the Mark V look...

    I just bought a VHT Deliverance 120 (WOOHOO!!) I was getting really tired of dragging my 412 everywhere so I am also going to get another cab. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what speakers would go well with this amp, and why you think so. Thanks

    Hi all, I've got all this awesome Mesa gear but never use it (I'm mainly playing drums these days, or playing guitar through a Line6 POD via headphones)... Time for someone else to get some use out of it! TriAxis MIDI-programmable tube power amp: http://www.brianwherry.com/Mesa/TriAxis.html...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...

    With a tip of my hat to the USA's finest rock band............. This my tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd My band plays quite a few numbers so i thought it would be a fitting stage prop....... I sent the pic to a few mates and they were asking how much and when were they being released -...

    hi :) I want to buy an amp. I have 1000 to spend. Maybe something used. I play Rock like Sum 41, Billy Talent.. Hard Rock, Metal like Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, etc. and I like a little bit of metalcore like As Blood Runs Black. (like their sound)I want to find an amp that is versatile. Could be...

    Recomendations for a 2x12 cab with Vin 30's or a like speaker? My mesa 3/4 back with the 90watt speakers seems a bit bright for my mesa f30. I'm thinking maybe a recto cab.

    Hey guys I must say this has made my tone much better. The crate gx1200h is a piece of crap but it isn't that bad if you work with the knobs a bit. A lot of people say "oh crate... garbage" but i'd say its got a better distortion "grain" or whatever you might call it than most other cheap amps...

    So this all started when I decided my drummer was right and that I needed a more transparent effects system for my Triaxis based rig... So I started digging around, and lo and behold, there was the G-system at a paltry 2300 list, $1350.00 delivered from an online retailer. I lubed up the old...

    What do you guys think of Guitar Center and their website www.***************.com ? Do you shop there? What do you like about it or not like about it? Do you think the company has a good future? Thanks

    Okay, so I've been searching for a while to get my first tube amp, and the Mesa Mark Iv has really grown on me, so I've decided on that. But I have no idea if I should get it in Head/Cabinet form or a combo. I would prefer getting the combo due to the lack of space I have in my room (And its...

    I'm always interested in learning about new gear and the best way to learn is to find out what other people like. So without further ado, what would you have in your end all be all rig? For me it would be a 10-space shock mount rack containing (from top to bottom): Furman PL-Plus power...

    So I just managed to find a Marshall 1960 4x12 slant cab [black tolex, silver grille (or maybe a grey one judging by the pictures, possibly black..???)]. ANYWAYS, just wondering if it's a good buy. It's almost brand new with the exception of small tolex rips on the bottom and the back of the...

    If I get a Mesa head, I'm wondering whether to use a Mesa cab as well. Mesas are majorly exensive, and I'm wondering whether they rally are worth all they are said to be? I'm thinking perhaps of Marshall instead, at only £350 ish, as opposed to £800+

    My dad said he's gonna buy me an amp, and i really want a Mesa (or anyother tube). But it'd be for my bedroom so buying a 50w would be useless, what Mesa should i get that i can use for a bedroom and maybe some school talent shows. Price range is about $800. I play and listen to old school...

    Well, as you can see I'm all ENGL style, I want to send out a thanks to Regor "Roger" from HRI for giving me a smokin deal on the ISP Decimator, and also a thanks to Rob at the JCF for sending me such a killer preamp. Anyhow, this is my main gigging rig, the powerball is the home rig, I need to...

    Okay, once I get enough money I'm thinking of getting a dual rectifier. I only play in my room and do recording. I use a Line6 Flextone III and rarely go above 90 dB (9:00 on the master knob). How loud exactly is a dual rectifier? I want to keep my ears/my family's ears/my walls intact, so I...

    Yesterday I was practicing before rehearsal and after about half an hour my cab started smokin!!. I turned off the amp and unplugged everything immediately. The amp was hotter than normal. Even 2 minutes after I shut off there was still some faint smoke coming out of the speaker with a burnt...
