The Mini Rectifier Twenty Five rides atop a 20-year legacy of world-class high gain performance and hit-making sounds that have been at the core of and even a catalyst for some of the very best of Modern Rock. You will quickly find that its Mini moniker and physical size bear no resemblance to its stature, power and command over blistering, tight overdrive in the realm of big gain Tone.
Don't think for a moment this is a trendy down-line toy or marketing-derived imitation of our mighty Recto. This is the real deal in every way a high-end instrument. Lurking within this expensive metal chassis, lies one of our most expressive and nuance-enhancing circuits to date and it creates an exciting, adrenaline-producing Tone machine one of the most fun to play in the entire MESA collection.
Whether you're rockin' hard or putting the immense versatility of the Mini's four Modes to bear on a variety of styles, you'll get years of inspiration and enjoyment from this little gas-in-glass-powered jewel. We always strive to build classics, icons that you'll treasure amongst your most valuable musical instruments. From the feedback we've received thus far it seems the Mini Recto is on its way toward achieving that status.

Some pros and some cons having owned this for about 4 years. . Pros - Tiny and lightweight - Settings are easy to dial in. - Sounds incredible. - Carry bag is high quality. - Light inside is changeable. - as is the grill on the front. (You can buy different grills) Cons - can't be rack mounted without extensive modification. - Dials are really hard to see in the dark. - if the clean and drive channel's are on different wattage then it creates a 'pop' sound when switching. I also bought the 2x12 cab but I wish I had gone smaller. The cab is so heavy and the handle is rubbish. But it does push out a high quality sound.

Cleans are good, just put a reverb in front or something. The shear amount of gain this thing has is awesome and you can go anywhere in between with break ups. The price has gone up for her a couple hundred.

Mesa Boogie Mini Dual Rectifier: no, it isn't. It only has one rectifier, a solid state one at that. It does not contain a tube rectifier. Dual Rec's have a switch to select tube or solid state, this one doesn't. Yes, it has the pre-amp sound of a dual rec but not the dual rec features. FYI.

I've had this amp for about a year and I haven't found a bad setting yet, it is that good. I've been playing for 25 years now and I love the rectifier tone. Great job Mesa!

Played with this amp for a year now, rockabilly/blues and heavier stuff. This is a great modern amp with not much to offer in the vintage tone arena. Clean channel sounds bauts with a single coil. 2nd channel is way too high gain for me, and doesn't cut through the mix. Controls are lovely, simple, thought out well. I fell in love with the clean channel and some boutique overdrives to make my tone happen; unfortunately in the bigger club settings, the amp gets lost. It IS LOUD, but not loud enough for larger clubs unless the soundman is really on the ball and you don't listen to your own amp; just the monitors. Love it but I have to upgrade to something with a little more balls.

I played with it in the store, but when I brought it home it is a killer little setup. I researched and looked at a lot of different little lunchbox style amps, but this blows them out of the water. Paired with a 10-Band EQ pedal it sounds as perfect as you need to jam, play alone or record.

It is amazing given the size and weight! I wanted something smaller so as not to carry around large combos. This amp rocks! My only peeves are that the modes should be accessible via footswitch. The clean channel is quite good, lotsa headroom on the 25W setting, nice breakup on 10W. I wish the PUSH (or crunch) Setting on channel one had just a bit more gain for my tastes, if you run the master up at 10W it compensates for it for the most part. Gain aside, this channel has some punch. It kicks pretty well even at 10W and has a great classic rock sound. Channel 2 is very high gain, the vintage setting lacks a bit of the punch found above but the modern setting has ridiculous gain and really smokes!!! Depending on your style, it should do the trick. Blues, classic rock tones, melting high gain, I think it does it all quite well. I wish I could boost from channel 2 vintage setting to modern for leads but will use an EQ in the loop. I am using the Boogie Mini Recto slant cab with the V30 and it is so exceptional to get this kind of tone from such a non-backbreaking setup. Put more footswitchable features on it!

I play mostly metal and this amp is incredible...and very loud...on the 25 watt modern mode. Not quite as much guts on the 10 watt, but that gives variety in other ways. I dont turn the volume past 1/4 in my basement or stuff upstairs starts shaking. Not as mini in volume as you might think.

Best lunchbox amp with the most headroom, by far... And it's made in North America. Pitched towards the parent's basement metal-head, this amp provides so much more than just that nostalgic mesa look and sound, but versatility and useability. The clean sounds clean, and if you crank it up, you can get a nice heavy metal chuck. More balls than the Tubemeister (stupid name from the HnK marketting department btw), and more options than any of the terror amps, this is worth the little extra in the long run. Two things... One is the illogical foot switch. There are too many options within each channel, therefore just switching between channels alone is pointless when most of the control is on the amp board itself. If I could control the saturated/crunch, the pushed/clean and the wattage number for each channel with my foot, that would have been real nice, even though a more elaborate foot board would have driven up the price a little more. And two, the Effects Loop sucks tone. While this amp does come with an effects loop, there is a noticeable volume dump when engaged and effects don't sound as normalized compared to when plugged into the front of the amp, specifically a boost/overdrive and an a few octave fuzzes. I have tried 4 different octave fuzz pedals and i cannot for the life of me get one to work with this amp, plugged both in front and in the effects loop. Diamond Fireburst, EHX Big Muff, Catalinbread Manx Loaghtan, and With all the options that come with, its not surprising that it came with a crappy footswitch as they probably wanted to stay within the $1,000 price point. i'm sticking with it until mesa makes a mini mark V, gnomesayin' ?

I bought this amp because I wanted something for bedroom practice , And man this amp does it all ! You can get tons of gain at low volume and on channel one clean mode with 25 watts is plenty enough to get a clean sound out . I also brought this amp to jam with my buddies and it is more than loud enough . We were in a garage and I was on 10 watts and couldn't even turn it up halfway ! All in all this is exactly what I wanted, That high gain mesa sound in bedroom size , yet big enough to jam and even gig with :) The only reason I gave the features a 9 is because since this is a smaller amp compared to the other mesa amp's it doesn't have as many features. But the features that it does have are awesome . Bottom line , Amazing amp ! I would most definitely recommend this .
