Although I already have some experience with rectos, finally I have one that I can call my own. It's probably my favorite recorded metal tone of all time. Although a lot of people seem to think of rectos as metal one-trick pony, there's simply so much more to this amp after you start exploring the (very) unorthodox EQ, master and gain settings. The dials are VERY interactive and it can be really counterintuitive dialing in this amp. For example, I found a great warm clean tone using the 'pushed' setting on ch1 with the gain at 9h (o'clock), master, bass and mid at 15h, and treble below noon.
There's one thing I noticed when engaging the 'loop active' volume controls which caught my attention, though. When disengaging the solo boost at the back, the tone seems a bit darker and thicker. With the 'lopp active' engaged (either foot switch or to a specific channel), the amps looses mids, the bass get's boomier and fizzier. This get's worse/more noticeable as you increase the channel master volume while keeping the solo output volume lowish.
Is this normal or is there maybe something wrong with my amp?
Feel free to record something for gits and shiggles
