With roughly the same interior area as the Horizontal 2×12 Recto cab, the overall tone, punch and detail is similar, but some players prefer a Slant-style cabinet for the ‘monitor’ effect from the top speaker sloping upwards. When you can’t bring a 4×12 to the gig or session, the 2×12 Recto Vertical Slant Cab easily provides a similar sonic footprint, without the size & weight… and it’s styling and huge tone will probably fool most folks into thinking it IS a 4×12.
You simply won’t find a better cabinet. ALL MESA® ENCLOSURES are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed. Speaker baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grille board, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response.
