Mesa/Boogie has announced the Recto-Verb 25, a new combo and head at a price point that will raise many an eyebrow.

The Recto-Verb 25 head and 1x12 combo are essentially reverb-laden brothers to the Mini Rectifier, and feature the all-new Filmore 75 speaker and the sort of valve-driven Mesa/Boogie tones that are usually only available to those with very deep pockets indeed.

The big news here - aside from the amps themselves, which will clearly kick a-- and take names - is the price, with the Recto-Verb 1x12 combo at £1399 and the head at £1239, a price point that will have a lot of guitarists jumping for joy.

The amps are expected to arrive in the UK by December, so Mesa/Boogie may be providing some extremely sweet sounding Christmas presents.

  • Custom Designed and Handcrafted Exclusively in Petaluma, California
