Gear of the Year RESULTS: Best Amplifier of 2013 Revealed

The results are in, and we can reveal the top five amps of 2013   03-Dec-13

4. Mesa Boogie Recto Verb 25

The Mesa Boogie Recto Verb 25 offers the classic Mesa sound in a (relatively) affordable package, in response to massive demand from fans of the amp company.

New on the market late this year, and at a price of £1239 (cheap for Mesa), it's the big Mesa saturated sound in a small package and it sounds great.

Buffered FX loop, long-spring reverb, variable wattage, two El-84s and six 12AX7s, it has caused a bit of a stir and is likely to go on to become a bestseller.

In short, we love it, and we're glad you love it too. The Mesa Boogie Recto Verb 25 comes in at number four on our amplifiers category in the SonicState Gear of the Year Awards.

If you haven't tried one yet, get down to your local dealer and give it a blast.

The results of this survey really don't count for much in my opinion. They may all be fine amps but whether one is better than another is so subjective. The reason I say that is because it depends on who votes. If it was a bunch of metal players then they'll pick a certain amp. There's also the possibility someone could post a zillion votes for one particular amp since there was no need to register to vote. I also suspect votes went out for amps people don't even actually own. Whatever...

I have owned this amp since june. Absolutely love it, althought it is VERY bright, I have my treble knob almost all the way down, the mid is glassier than i am used to . I have a Moog Drive pedal in front for some boost/drive and when i want to really push it I have a vintage EHX Hot Tubes that really really makes this amp shine! On stage the valve switch and half power switch are both life savers as some sound guys see me take this out of the case and give me quite an evil eye. They have been shocked how well the internal attenuation works. A+ amp in my book.
