Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Head
Introducing the New Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Head!
Its been nineteen years, two generations of guitarists and several musical trend-cycles since the Dual Rectifier first unleashed its crushing wall of gain on radio. In that time many have mimicked, modeled, dissected and plagiarized it, but it remains firmly planted at the center of hard-core a Rock icon.
A decade ago the Recto underwent a massive facelift that greatly expanded its versatility and took what was a 2 Channel amp aimed squarely at high gain only to a 3 Channel amp capable of roaming any style confidently.
On the eve of its 20th Birthday, with still the widest, deepest footprint in heavy music and now a long list of chart topping devotees outside the world of heavy, the Recto has been re-worked, re-tuned and refined again.
Now with Mesa's patented Multi-Watt Channel Selectable Power, an Improved Effects Loop, Channel Assignable Rectifier Choices with RECTIFIER TRACKING, a TUNER OUT jack with SILENT TUNE feature and an all new Footswitch, the new Dual and Triple are more menacing than ever. But whats really got us excited isnt all the new features you can see on the Front and Rear Panel. Those are great and really useful, but were jacked on the NEW TONE!
Weve unearthed a lot of secrets in the last two decades and weve used them all in this new rendering. Improved CLEAN and PUSHED in Channel 1 a more soulful, earthiness in RAW, thicker layers of harmonics and more liquid gain in VINTAGE and tighter gut-punching attack in MODERN in Channels 2 and 3.
Play the new Dual Rectifiers and feel for yourself the incredible sonic power of these modern day classics now even better than the originals.
