Mesa Boogie cabs are known for two things. Being made to last a long time on even the toughest of tours and a thick powerful sound that matches their American amps perfectly. This oversized vertical 2x12 is a perfect match for those using Mesa's small or medium sized heads who want that classic projection of a slanted cabinet that is easy to move around.
When looking for a quality cabinet you want every part of it to be built to the best standards possible. This is because even things like the quality of the wood used can effect not only the sound coming out but how well it projects forward. That is why Mesa make sure to only use void free, marine grade baltic birch for all of their cabinets making sure that this will survive a long time on tour and you get the projection you need.
Celestion Vintage 30 Speakers
If you were to look around the world for one speaker that can fit in to almost situation it would be the Vintage 30. Every style of guitarists is known for using these speakers. This is because their very natural mid range works well with almost any amplifier and the early break up point makes crunch and overdriven sounds a breeze to get.
Here's what Mesa Boogie say about the 2x12" Recto Vertical Slant Cab
For fans of the Slant Cab style and tone (but a 4x12 is too much), the Rectifier 2x12 Vertical Slant delivers. With roughly the same interior area as the Horizontal 2x12 Recto cab, the overall tone, punch and detail is similar, but some players prefer a Slant-style cabinet for the 'monitor' effect from the top speaker sloping upwards. When you can't bring a 4x12 to the gig or session, the 2x12 Recto Vertical Slant Cab easily provides a similar sonic footprint, without the size & weight… and it's styling and huge tone will probably fool most folks into thinking it IS a 4x12.
You simply won't find a better cabinet. ALL MESA ENCLOSURES are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed. Speaker baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grille board, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response.
