Written by

Jed Van Wyngaardt

The Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Recto-Verb 25 head gives you all of the quality that you'd expect from a Mesa amplifier in a smaller, portable package. Ideal for recording, small gigs and home use. It's all very well having a big beefy Mesa stack, but the Recto-Verb 25 can achieve all your dream tones at a fraction of the size, volume and price. 

The Recto-verb 25 nails all of Mesa Boogie's classic tones in a smaller more manageable format. All of the power and dirt that made Mesa the go-to amps from everything from classic rock through to nu-metal in a 25w head that won't get you evicted for noise complaints! Check out the wealth of videos to see all of the wide range of tones available from this very special amplifier...

Here's what Mesa Boogie say about the Recto-verb 25

Introducing the Recto-Verb Twenty-Five Head. This is a Reverb-endowed, cousin of our little Mini Rectifier lunchbox that’s been taking names all over the globe. This mighty package is slightly larger – just big enough to accommodate a long-spring Reverb tank in the case of the head. It boast all the same great performance that the Mini Rec is famous for and more.

We keep saying it, but it’s hard to overstate the value, effectiveness and stylistic “power” of the Multi-Watt Channel Assignable Power switches. These dedicated wattage range choices unveil different power characteristics and colors – so they are really power “voicing” switches as well.

In this Recto, the choice of EL-84 power tubes with their amazing clip characteristics, prompted us to explore the different wiring schemes possible. This experimentation led to the 10-Watt Power Mode being wired for Triode operation. This “more vintage” wiring scheme sweetens and rounds out the sound, turning what might otherwise be a lower volume version of the same voice, into more “soulful” Recto experience.

The 25-Watt setting delivers a bold attack, tight tracking low end, increased definition and all out headroom. This setting works great with all the sounds and certainly showcases the mightiness in this little Rectifier, shocking unsuspecting players and bystanders alike with power and sonic size. But any time you need to tame this little beast and put a vintage patina of warmth and silkiness around things… kick down to 10-Watts and enjoy a whole new and different world of Recto expression.
