I don't dislike my Rectoverb 50 at all. In fact, it's probably the best amp I've owned for versatility and tone. The cleans are not the best, though, and lead tones can be a bit hard-edged.
But, Mesa fans, if you were evaluating a Mesa combo amp for a "creamy, heavy blues rock amp," that takes pedals well, has an excellent clean but can get up and growl if it has to (not necessarily a "metal" amp,) would you consider:
- Rect-O-Verb (already have it)
- Lone Star Classic (2x12, probably)
- Maverick (2x12)
I mention the Maverick, as well, because I was offered one and passed, not knowing much about it.
