Don't think for a moment that the Mini Rectifier® is a trendy down-line toy or marketing-derived imitation of our mighty Recto®. This is the real deal… in every way a high-end, hand made all-tube amplifier. 

"Laugh. Love. Live. Learn." Devin Townsend's backstage Mini Rec/Mini Recto cab rig.

Lurking within this expensive metal chassis, lies one of our most expressive and nuance-enhancing circuits to date and it creates an exciting, adrenaline-producing Tone machine… one of the most fun to play in the entire MESA® collection.

Like its original two channel forefathers, this Recto® keeps things straight ahead and easy to navigate. This generation features two footswitchable Channels that each contain two Modes and while it looks basic and drives easy, a world of stylistic versatility lives within these two simple rows of controls.

TWO CHANNELS AND FOUR VERSATILE STYLE MODES
Two independent channels and four style modes deliver everything from sparking cleans to aggressive fury. The Mini Rectifier’s Channel 1 focuses on rhythm sounds, both clean and overdriven. The CLEAN Mode delivers sparkling, big headroom rhythm sounds that breathe with rich, warm air on the bottom end. When driven to clip and combined with the 10 watt Power setting, this Mode misbehaves with real attitude and shines for urgent, yet soulful, Blues solo sounds and furry Rock rhythm.

Mini Rectifier offers two independent channels and four style modes Two independent channels and four style modes deliver everything from sparking cleans to aggressive fury. PUSHED aptly describes what to do with the second Mode in Channel 1 and here you'll find the next region of gain. With a more stripped EQ and just enough added drive, PUSHED invites aggressive Rock rhythm and Crunch styles to the party and even taunts your mid-gain solo work, especially in the 10 Watt Power setting.

Channel 2 features the iconic Recto high gain sounds - the iconic liquid wall of VINTAGE and the aggressive fury of MODERN. VINTAGE excels at thick, high gain chording and single note soloing with an elastic feel and a broad harmonic spread. It has a looser, more organic sound and the overdrive drapes itself around the notes creating a huge, three-dimensional image.

VINTAGE solo work is further enhanced by the 10 Watt Power position. Here, the attack envelope changes and becomes rounder and more voice-like, while upper harmonics recede slightly to create single note sounds of true beauty. VINTAGE and 10 Watt compliment each other in ways that will open new doors for the Recto that were previously open only to more well behaved or "cultured" amps. It may also open wide the eyes of current big-power Recto owners who experience for the first time - what this power range/wiring style does for a sound they had typecast. This is a new and exciting face of Recto and it will surely expand its stylistic footprint.

MODERN is the opposite in every way. This aggressive Mode comes right at you - maybe even for you - with stunning attack and a hi-mid bump that keeps things percussive and tracking with hyper-accuracy. It's hard to believe that this amount of gain can be infused and yet still deliver - especially in bass frequencies - with this much speed and definition. But this is pure Recto and MODERN contributes an equal part to achieving its status as the other most recorded sound in Rock.

Needless to say, MODERN is all about all things Heavy and Metal. And while this sound is best demonstrated using the 25 Watt Power setting, be sure not to typecast MODERN too quickly. Using the 10 Watt Power setting to sweeten the mids and soften the attack here, shows another side to MODERN as well that's more forgiving and vocal, creating a great alternate solo voice with a little more punch and dynamic content.
