The best I've had. - Reviews Mesa Boogie Recto-Verb 25 Combo

Detailed specifications can be found easily, I let you up!
But by and large we have a two-channel tube (not just beautiful but 2 to 8) hand made in the USA.
Power 10 watts or 25 watts of choice.
Reverb. spring, effects loop.
Comes with footswitch (to change channel) cable for the footswitch and cover for the amp.
(There is a footswitch for the reverb output but it does not come with).

UTILIZATION

The configuration is it simple?
Yes, the two channels are identical, we found it right away.
Gets it easy to sound good?
Yes, if things in the order you set (roughly from left to right).
The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Yes, very detailed with a lot of tips for finding the perfect sound ... but in English.

I just wish one thing: the switch that changes the grain of the clean channel is not available at the ... damage. On the latter, the difference between clean and Pushed returns to a supplemental channel.
On the overdrive channel, the difference between vintage and modern change the volume too so that we can regret not being able switcher on the fly.

SOUNDS

Is it your style of music?
Yes, because it's super versatile. I play in a pop / / progressive grunge band and it's perfect.
But you can really play jazz with the metal. The clean is majestic, very warm. However, the media are still quite present (as clean as saturation), so for extreme metal will require an external EQ I think.

With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
I play a Strat HSS mounted EMG config and just a delay.

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
I am so captivated by the clear sound that crunches as saturated.

From the point of view of power:
it moves !! This amp really below the elbow (more than my old H & k TM18). It fills the space well, good presence.
But the volume is very very gradual, so that I use carefree apartment. This applies particularly to channel 1, channel 2 is a little more difficult to manage (especially in modern mode), but you get it anyway.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?
For 3 months.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes: Marshall, but the sounds (especially clean) are not as warm - Fender: close at the clear, but not saturated Channel - Orange: great but much less versatile and very distinctive - H & K : much cooler and modern, etc.

What is so special that you like most and least?
Goodies:
- Sounds
- Reverb. (Magic !!)
- The weight
- Power
- Manufacturing quality

Cons:
- Price
- The lack of control at the foot of switches character

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...
It is expensive, but it is so close to the idea that I'm a perfect that it does not matter amp ...
With experience, I would do the same purchase, especially as I found in the rare Tan Bronco Brit finish (beige) ... it's beautiful!
