Mesa Boogie Recto-Verb 25 25-watt 1x12" Tube Combo Late 2010s Blue Bronco w/Footswitch
With the worldwide success of the Mini Rectifier® Twenty-Five Head, we were frequently asked to pack all that lightweight expressiveness into a Combo format so those needing a self-contained package could enjoy this mighty little amp too. Well, your wish is our command - and we didn’t stop there…
Introducing the Recto®-Verb™ Twenty-Five Head and 1x12 Combo. These are the Reverb-endowed, fraternal-twins of our little Mini Rectifier® lunchbox that’s been taking names all over the globe. These even mightier packages are slightly larger – just big enough to accommodate a 1x12 speaker in the case of the combo and long-spring Reverb tank in the case of the head. In both cases they 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.
