  • Mesa sounding Pedals?

    Hey guys I wanted to ask if you know of any tight, high gain mesa rec/mark sorta pedals. Yes I know a second ago I was asking about marshall in a boxes but I'm just curious. Second question is Wampler triple wreck vs mesa throttle box. Anyone tried both and have an opinion? They are both rectifier sounding pedal but what do people think? Thanks guys

    You could check the U.S. Metal pedal out from this line of stuff. http://www.tech21nyc.com/products/sa...terseries.html I've heard good things. Hope it helps.

        Mesa makes their own pedals now. Can't get closer to the source than that!

            I would think the Palladium could do that sound, too. Keep in mind, there are so many different Mesa sounds. A Dual Rect sounds nothing like a Mark I or Heartbreaker or Blue Angel.

              I haven't tried it, but I know it's marketed as a Recto in a box.

                mesa throttle-box w/eq might be a good place to start

                  Those are great pedals, I had #50 for a long time. I don't think they really sounded all that Recto or Mark-ish though.

                    I'm a little confused on the mesa pedals. Are they supposed to make an amp sound like a mesa or do they enhance amps that are already mesa? Both?

                      I always got from the ads that they were supposed to add some Mesa flavor to any amp you had.

                          Was gonna suggest this.. The AMT clips Ive heard have all been pretty good
                          Believe me when I say that some of the most amazing music in history was made on equipment that's not as good as what you own right now.

                            Depends which one. The throttle-box is just a thick grinding metal distortion pedal (obviously you can back the gain off), but most of the others are just forms of typical boost/overdrive preamps.
                            Throttle with EQ looks interesting for a clean or near clean channel.
