Mesa's Legendary Amp Head Gets Even Better!Plug into a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier 3-channel tube amplifier head and you're in for the kind of massive tone you've only dreamed of - until now! This all-tube, 100-watt firebreather one-ups its predecessors, adding a third channel to an already legendary amp. Now you can dial in that great chunky rhythm tones to make your tonal palette complete. As always, the Dual Rectifier is capable of the most mammoth metal tones out there, but now its even more versatile. Experience the pure power of a legend for yourself - play through a Dual Rectifier!
It all started in the early '70s, when Boogie introduced the groundbreaking Mark series. Since the early '70s. These amps became famous for their gobs of overdrive and liquid sustain, making them sing through solos. When all this thick gain was combined with Mesa's onboard 5-band graphic EQ, lethal crunch was the result, and it propelled both players and Mesa into the spotlight for the last two decades. Not content to rest on their laurels (or anyone else's), the folks at Mesa sought a combination of the Boogie's creamy tone and a huge low end that could track faster and stay tight even under the most extreme settings. Their quest for the best of both worlds resulted in the benchmark Dual and Triple Rectifier heads. Years later, the patented Dual Rectifier series amplifiers continue to blow away crowds and players alike.
The 1990s brought new amps to Mesa's lineup that were built to appeal to lower-gain playing styles, and these amps definitely found their share devotees. Yet with appearances on hundreds of hit recordings and thousands of loyal players singing (and playing) their praises, the Dual and Triple heads remain the mainstays of the Rectifier phenomenon.
How could Mesa possibly improve on such an amazing amp? They added another channel! These 3-channel monsters unleash all the punishing gain found in the original Recto's two channels - and add a powerful third channel dedicated to rhythm sounds. The high gain lead channels now each have an additional mode dubbed RAW that provdes gain levels below that of the original Vintage mode. RAW's touch-sensitive response lets you explore the heavier side of blues on up to classic rock, revealing the soulful nature of this amazing tube-rectified power section. MULTI-WATT mode also lets you switch each channel from 100-watt mode to 50-watt mode, giving you access to a whole different sound and dynamic performance.
Modern players want to get the most out of their amps onstage and in the studio, and Mesa certainly delivers. With three versatile channels, eight incredible modes, the new Solo Control feature, a programmable/footswitchable serial effects loop, and a stage-ready 6-button foot controller, the Dual and Triple Rectifier heads are purebred, gain-wielding beasts destined for the same iconic status earned by their predecessors.

Well Worth the Wait
by Cody from Ft. Lauderdale, FL USAI saved up for 5 years to buy this amp with its matching cab and...this amp was everything i wanted and more! It can produce enough gain to decimate a small country and beautiful cleans that can get a... read more [+]ny lady in your arms. The only problem I found with this amp, is that it takes a considerable amount of time to dial in your tone... but once you do it is a dream to hear and play. It offers so many options from the spongy/ bold setting, if you want to bypass the rectifier tubes or use the silicon diode setting. Its all great and most of all versatile. If you play metal, punk, country, ska, gospel, clean, and/or any other genre this thing can most definitely play it, and play it better than any other amp. close [-]

And my rhythm channel will be channel 3 on modern mode as well.
The amp needs tweaking to scoope out the tone, but as soon as you get with the right guitar its heaven.
The loop section it's amazing and really clean just be careful with signal level it can get really hot.
The foot switch its great and smooth, excellent construction.
No more to say about it... It a dual rectifier a messa legend... close [-]

Channel 3 is what I have been search for...that perfect mix of high gain with tonal quality. Tons of adjustability to hone in the sould your after.
I actually use it in a spare bedroom at a master volume setting of around 8-9 o'clock. It sounds great cranked and backed off.
There are a few nitpick complaints I have (location of knob text is a pain to read, no real marker on the knobs to see what they are set at - only a chromed dent and I wish the foot contoller cable came out the back), but the sound quality more than makes up for the minor inconveniences.
I am using the amp to play 80's rock, hard rock and heavy metal. close [-]
This amp is one of the classic metal amps. But did you know that the clean channel on the Dual and Triple Rectifiers can be used for a lot more than metal? For that matter, so can the dirty channels! This is a lot more than JUST a metal amp. I used mine to do everything from contemporary worship music, to bluesy overdrive, to crystal clear clean tones, and of course....HEAVY METAL!!! Dual and Triple Rectifiers are a lot more versatile than their preceding reputation gives them credit for! Three channels and the truth!
