Very straightforward control layout. Not too many dials & switches.......but enough to give you some serious tonal variations. Fabulous cleans, even if you need pristine clean. For my live shows I usually used the ?pushed? side of the clean channel for a bit of break up. For lead excursions I use the ?modern? switch but tone down the gain a bit, as there is quite a bit of gain on tap. Great sustain & note definition. Nice to have a dedicated reverb on both channels. I play small to medium sized venues. More than enough clean headroom for small venues. For medium sized venues YMMV. For one venue I used a custom 2x12 extension cabinet. That did the trick. More than enough volume. Excels at bedroom volume as wel. The amp is extremely well built as you would expect with a Mesa. I?ve had the amp for a little over a year. Absolutely no issues with the amp to date. I run a Zoom MS-70CDR in the effects loop. (Runs on AA?s, so it?s one less power supply to worry about). I require fewer pedals with this amp. Guitar> Boss TU-3> Earthquaker Spatial Delivery > Earthquaker The Depths> Earthquaker Grand Orbiter> Chase Tone Secret Preamp> Mesa Rectoverb..........on a Voodoo Labs Dingbat Small with an ISO 5. I couldn?t be happier with this amp. This is my forever amp!

If you've gotten to this point, you've probably read every online review and forum post about this amp. It's all true. It's an amazing amp and you should buy one. My only complaints are that it's hard to dial in (tone stack operates differently on Mesas than other amps) and while it can give you Fender like cleans, it is still a very darkly voiced amp. You'll never get a Marshall-like fizz but you'll get a good approximation. The reverb is worth the price difference over the Mini Rec. It's huge sounding, although muddier than a classic Fender reverb. I'm curious as to what a speaker swap will do for the sound, but out of the box this thing is awesome.

I am a senior that has been around amps all my life. I built a few myself over the years from scratch too. I even owned the first Marshall stacks when they first came to Canada. I also own some Fenders and a Victoria 45410 59 bassman combo hand wired. Every amp has a voice, but this one has them all. The Fillmore speaker is amazing. This amp is so much better than anything else out there these days for all any analogue pure tones and drive. You will not find these at any Walmart either. The attack on 25 watts is killer. The 10 watt setting is so smooth and loud as hell.. No regrets in any way. Very little and subtle tweaking needed to find your sound. or dozens more. Buy one. Worth every cent and that much better than the rest of the competition.

I have been playing guitar for 30 years and have owned numerious guitar amps. Engl Powerball, Engl Fire Ball, Mesa Roadking, Marshall DSL, and many more. I picked up this baby after I was having issues with my Line 6 DT25 which is a great sounding amp. But reliably issues made me have to trade it in. All I can say is the rectoverb 25 can get you any sound you want .. You do have to spend a little time to learn what the dials do. It is pricey but well worth owning.

And I love it. Beautiful clean tones to heavy crunch and everything in between. I had listed it to sell in a moment of post Christmas financial crisis. While waiting for the ad to be answered, I played it for a couple of hours and knew I couldn't sell it. It just sounds that good.

I bought this amp because I needed a variety of functions in a dependable combo. Something that would sound good in a bedroom and then rip up a club at night. This amp does it all. Les Paul and Strat both sound great. Even my Martin and Resonator ...with little or no hum. Great quality. The reverb is huge and each channel can be controlled individually. The down side is the Reverb knobs are on the back. Also, reverb is on/off via a footswitch that is NOT included. Aside from that ...perfect.

I bought this amp to replace my Peavey 6505 212 and I don't regret it. This little amp is very loud and can easily play a club. The build quality is top notch, as one would expect from Mesa. The real selling feature on this are the tones you can get out of it. Really, there are no limits, on channel 1 the clean sounds are awesome and on the 10 watt setting if you drive it hard you can get some very nice clipping. For Vox fans, it nails the crunch sound perfectly on the pushed setting. On Channel 2 the vintage setting is awesome giving that full saturated OD sound. The Modern setting takes you into that tight bottom high gain recto sound we all know and love (plus it runs very quiet, no hissing like the 6505 and great for recording). I know the price point is high (I wrestled with it for a while) but this is worth it. Really, you won't need another amp, ever.
