    My first Rectifier thanks to Ryan (Mr. S). I've had about 10 minutes using Channel 3 with the SD-1. Sounds killer but really needs to be cranked. Once the neighbour has gone out, I'll get my chance then

    But anyway, I think this is just what I was looking for. Any suggestions on getting the best from these?

    That thing shall be dearly missed. I borrowed it many times between owning my two previous Dual Recs.

    SD1 doesn't quite have enough juice on tap to push these into a more liquid territory IME. An OD808 or TS-9 is the ticket, as they have a few more db on tap than the Boss.

    Just bear in mind, Rectifier distortion is incredibly clean and gritty. Absolutely no compression, and tons of low end. I always kept the bass very low, like 9-10 o clock, even when boosted, and use the presence dial to wash out some of the low mids.

    Agreed on the SD1. It's alright but could do with a touch more oomph. I'm off to guitarguitar tomorrow so I may pick something up while I'm there. You'll notice the L500xl you sold me in the Warmoth there Matt

    Mattyus is spot on. Rectos on modern have tons of low end, and the distortion is wide open. The low end cut of a TS is great for tightening up the bottom and compressing the preamp.

    Simply awesome amp!! I used that exact same model for years. Throw a Maxon 808 or a Grid Slammer in front for exactly what that amp needs. If I'm seeing it correctly, it's the same model triple I had, and if you search this forum there's an old thread of mine for modding the FX loop to serial if you want it to play nice with digital effects.
