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 90s brought new amps to Mesa's lineup that were built to appeal to low-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.

So many amazing tones

It's like having multiple amps all put into one masterpiece. Any electric guitar sound you could ever need is in one of the three Chanels.

Best Tube amp I've ever played!

This amp can do it all! If you need a "CLEAN" clean or in your face Modern metal gain, or any stage in between, this is your amp. How can you make a great amp even better? Add the option to choose between 50 or 100 watts on each channel. How about choosing to use the rectifier tube(s) on any of those channels as well. What about being able to change between 6L6 and EL34 tubes. Man, I tell ya, this amp has exceeded all of my expectations, and I hope to have FINALLY ended my search for ultimate tone and versatility with my purchase of the Multi-Watt Dual Rec. Get one! You will not regret it!

Well Worth the Wait

I 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 any 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.

Awesome amp

The amp it's all you can spect from messa boogie and more.The clean channel it's amazing and great on the pushed mode.On channel two you have a great palates of tones. I used it for my solos on the modern mode and its great.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...

Sweetwater Advice

Zach Neels

The Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier is a classic reborn! Now with the ability to switch wattages, you can easily make the transition between the stadium and the club! Listen to the latest releases of rock, metal, hardcore, post-hardcore, metalcore, and every thing in between, and you're guaranteed to hear a Rectifier!

Chris McCown

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!
