Do it!

I was going to use an existing cab and place a wood baffle adapter on the back of the original baffle to accomodate the smaller 10". But there are issues with that like rattle etc I diodn;t want to have to deal with.

I have got a couple of Weber 10" AlNiCo Classics that I have also been experimenting with. Dayum thet are a great speaker.

The Mesa Mini Rec. This thing is awesome and should not be assumed as just a smaller version of the larger Rectos. This thing has its own voices, only one of which, the "modern" setting on the red channel, resembles a larger Recto. This thing sounds fantastic with the clean setting dimed, both gain and master. It's clipping hard with weeks of sustain and zero compression. It's very "Dumble-ish" like that. Back off the gain and the cleans are really sweet and clean with decent headroom switched to 25 watt pentode operation. The "pushed" setting gets very British; think old Aerosmith tone or great for AC/DC stuff. The "vintage" setting really comes close to the old Mark series OD - fat, round, open. Again, it pays to push the master higher than the gain.

I'm happy to answer any questions.

Peace

The settings shown below are my basic gig and rehearsal baselines. Actually, the top row sees the master and gain dimed or close to it; then I just ride the guitar volume. The second row is pure Mark I Boogie with the EQ on my board set for a mid boost.

Very 3D, the cab is very alive, plenty of woodiness. It's great with the high gain sound on the Matamp C7. I've found pine cabs can be too alive, but with the lower volume amps this one sounds quite remarkable. Feedback enhancing too. Lot's of fun.

It's pine with ply baffle. I got the red tolex cheap locally and had everything else lying around. It's small-ish, light and has sorta Fender Custom Shop amp, off set vibe thing going on.
serious fn cool. :thumbup:

The amp I use most (the others I tend to use, a Rivera Quiana Studio and a Tech21 Trademark 60) but I do have a few more than just them : -
