    So what do guys think about this? Mesa boogie dual recto 2ch version thru a mesa cab. Maxon od808 for boost. Shure PG48 just thrown in front of it. Just jammin' so sorry for the mistakes. Any advice for improvments. More the rhythm guitar im concerned about. Thanks!

    Red face pretty good

    im not a recording master but i think it sounds pretty good. 1 thing that i noticed,make sure that you record your guitar in a room that has little reverb or throw a blanket over the amp. Good Sound!!!

    hope i helped

    I like the tone. But I would definately be curious to hear what it sounds like with the overdrive removed though. The reason is this. You are certianly not the only one who uses a boost on dual rectos. They are quite popular in fact, especially the Maxon. But for me (and this is strictly my opinion), they color the tone a little to much. You lose a little of the recto growl in the mid range tone area and it is replaced by a higher tone. I can hear it a bit in your recording. It sounds great but reminded me a bit of when I put a tube screamer in front of my amp. It made for a tighter muted palm sound but really took away from the tone when I hit chords and let them ring out. In my playing I can make the muted palm stuff sound tighter by adjusting my picking and palm placement, but I could not get that "classic recto growl" sound back in the chords with the tube screamer in front.

    If you feel like it, I would definately be curious to here it again with the exact same settings only minus the overdrive. You may be forced to slightly raise you gain, but barely. And I mean just a hair.

    But in the end, if you are happy, that is all that matters. It does sound great though!

    Forgot to say. I recorded in a very small treated booth. Not sure how I can deaden the reverb anymore. Advice?
