Tap into the sound and feel of a Recto Stack in your rack
Mesa/Boogie's not even sure how they did it, but they did. Somehow, they managed to pack the addictive feel, can't-describe vibe, and flat-out amazing tone of their Recto — all into a compact, two-rackspace chassis. The tubes are there, it's all there... and it's always ready — no more hauling and miking: one cable and you've nailed it. That's the beauty of the Mesa/Boogie Rectifier Recording Preamp.

Two channels put you in touch with killer Recto tones
You've got the versatility you expect from your Recto — the Rectifier Recording Preamp sports two channels and six modes for all of that tube-driven beauty. Channel 1 gives you Clean, Fat, or Brit tones, while you can crank it up in Channel 2 for Raw, Vintage High Gain, or Modern High Gain sounds. A Live Bright/Warm Record voice switch is onboard for further tweaking, and an effects loop lets you bring in all of those stompboxes you've come to love.
