Gimme a Meathead.
just like six more 6505s
Given my usual tastes, probably a JP2C. I loved my Studio Pre before my axe FX tenure.
Depends on which Recto, but yea I'd rather have a 2 channel and boost than that sound. Have to remember too that the sound in the video isn't necessarily what the amp actually sounds like.
The more I think about it, I feel like if money was no object, I'd be spending it moreso on recording gear and instruments than on amps. I'd love to an army of mics and preamps and good sounding rooms and things like that.
Yeah, he was using a camera mic at what sounds like low volume. Rectos like to be cranked at a decent volume. Also sounds like he has the gain too low so there's no saturation. He has a couple more demos that sound much better with more saturation and volume.
Got to be honest if I was going for a Hermansson his Recto rebuild is not what I would go for. IMHO his Marshall mods and PA rebuilds sound MUCH better
The way he describes the modded Recto is that he tweaked the circuitry a bit. While the Marshall and PA mods are complete rebuilds. I wonder if that has anything to do. With it
I think I would go for a Friedman Butterslax, maybe with a twin Reverb for clean cleans, or JP-2C or the TC-100, also always had pretty bad Uberschall gas, I'd definitely do a shootout with all of those see which ones I like the most.
Custom Friedman BE 50 Deluxe in white tolex with a matching 4x12 cab.
Fortin Meshuggah. I'm in love with that thing.
Mark iic+ with a wicker grille.
Fortin Meshuggah, Diezel VH4 or Wizard MC2
For the price point I can get by on a 5150 just fine. The ares is a fine amp but I’m currently a full time student so cuts were made.
Once I’m rolling in dough again probably gonna cop a Gemini, a butterslax, and an insanely heavily modded 5150, and a couple orange heads...
are there any common 5150 mods? I know all about the various Marshall mods out there but that's it.
FJA and Voodoo both do 5150 mods.
Why anyone would mod an amp in 2019 is a better question. It may have made sense in 1980 when options were limited to Marshall, Marshall, Traynor, Laney, or Marshall, but nowadays there's thousands of builders all offering their slightly tweaked version of every circuit ever, so you might as well just get what you want stock.
Well I’m an engineering major so I’d probably just do it myself for Shits n giggles.
Just because there are a lot of options is no reason to not mod and make more options. Price may also be a factor. Modding a cheaper amp to get closer to the sound you want rather than buying an expensive amp could make sense for a lot of people. I wouldn't want to play shows with an expensive amp personally unless I was doing it on a professional level.
Because it's fun?
