So some of you guys may remember my earlier dilemma about not being able to bring my Mesa 412 to college. After a certain amount of soul searching I went with the Recto 212. I ordered it but it wasn't back in stock at sweetwater till mid march, so I had a sudden change of heart and thought, hey if the roadster/stilleto is pretty much a tighter recto cab, what could be so bad about trying it out (plus I didn't want to wait till march ) so I switched up my order, and here it is.
Bad news is its way too fucking loud for playing in the dorms , combined with the Rivera's Impractical (for lower volumes ) Master Volume I can't put it above 2. I had it on 2.5 and I heard a knock on my door, a friend from 2 floors down telling me he could hear me from there . Unfortunately I probably won't really get a chance to break it in till spring break, so I can't really judge the sound right now. And obviously broken in V30s > unbroken in v30s.
Also here is a bonus picture of the only decor in my shithole dorm.
Um, hmm... 120W tube head and 2x12 cab? In a dorm room? People are going to haaaaaate you. I had enough volume problems with a 50w Spider 1x12 combo.
