Im no expert. I'll just share my experience. Ive never owned a tube amp. I absolutely love the sound of the dual rectifier, but was a little afraid of the volume as i dont need the cops called everytime i jam. So i musta watched every video there was on the dual rec and mini rec. Wondering how much of that classic sound i would loose buying the mini and would it still be too loud? After months of saving. I just went with it and got the mini. As far as the sound. I am in love. This thing sounds just as i wanted it to. I got the mini rec 1 12 cab and this thing gets loud as f*** to loud to put on the recomeded minimum volume at 4. But i have had great results recording in the 10 wat mode at "bedroom" volume. Im 100% happy with the mini and have no regrets. Glad i dident get the dual rec. Im sure the neighbors are too. Lol.

Mesa Boogie Mini RECTO

I own a lot of amps, I bought this amp for my practice room and not to gig with, and I must say the Mini Recto suprised me, not for the Recto sound, I expected that, but the crystal clean tight clean sound! This amp is a winner, I don't know how anyone could be disappointed. Of special note, I was set on buying the Britain Made (not CHINA!) Orange Tiny Terror, but the dirty channel was so noisy, the Mini Recto is quiet. Plus the size is great and I don't have to re-bias the amp when I change tubes! It looks tough and when I crank it up it screams! SWEETWATER is the best!

Best in class, plays way over its weight

This is just an amazing little amp. Can't say enough about it, the clean tones are excellent and the overdrive tones are scary good too. Can hang in many different contexts too, its awesome clean tones make it incredibly versatile. I just gigged it for the first time with my R&B group and it kicked butt. Can't wait to fire it up in my TX blues outfit. Handles different OD pedals in front very well. Effects loop works great too. I don't think I'll be hauling my heavier amps to rehearsal ever again, nor will they be seeing nearly as much gig time as they used to, it's just too easy to travel with this little guy... easy to carry, but NO compromise on the tone. FUN AMP.

Yes. It's really THAT good.

It's hard not to fall in love with Mesa products. It's even harder not to accept something just because it has the Mesa name on it. But I almost walked away from this one when I saw it the first time. Like many others I thought I had been shipped a Happy Meal toy by mistake. Its small size was drawn more sharply into focus as it sits beside my Roadster head with 4x12 Recto cab. But dang... it sounds wonderful. And the volume is abundant. Bear in mind that it has no on-board reverb. But I use an Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail in the effects loop and it sounds terrific. The EL-84s give you less bottom than the 6L6's in my Roadster. But high-gain sounds are still VERY good. And the clean sound is superior to those that my Roadster provides. My previous smallish amp was a 4x10 combo made by a great company whose name rhymes with "Bender". That product was inferior to this one in every way, even after compensating for expense. If you have the jack to spend on an amp of this price level, you won't be disappointed.

I read lots of reviews for this amp before I finally decided to pull the trigger and buy it... I had bought a solo 50 rectifier from ebay, but had problems with it so I sent it back... SO GLAD I DID... when I first took this amp out of the box, I literally thought "no way is this toy looking thing going to be able to play large venues"... boy was I WRONG... this amp has some of the best tones I've ever heard, and LOUD! I turned the master up to 3 on the dirty channel and was literally almost blown out of my bar stool... the construction is top notch, very solid.. you can tell this amp is hand built.. the tubes are easy to access... I cant wait to play my first gig with it this weekend, in a LARGE venue no less... you wont believe your ears..

Sweetwater Advice

Chris McCown

I just played this head for the first time, and I was honestly FLOORED! I've owned a Dual Rectifier, a Roadster, and a Road King, so I'm familiar with what the Recto tones are about, and this little Recto is the real deal! Plenty of bottom end, the familiar Rectifier chunk, and the clean channel is warm and full of character - I do believe I've found my next amp!
