    I've seen this video This guy has changed the Gain pot on Channel 3 to a 1 Meg pot (stock is 250k). Sounds like a pretty good and easy mod to do, but has any one here done it? I'm considering it for my Triple Rectifier.
  2. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I've decided that, as much as I want to keep this amp, I simply don't need a three channel amp. I'm much more of a pedal platform kina guy these days. Other than a small amount of live use, before I got my sunn, it's mainly been relegated to sitting in my office or being borrowed by Mattayus...

    This amp is awesome and deserves to go to somebody who will play it! Condition is mint and includes the gig bag. I'm thinking $800 shipped CONUS is fair. I'll sell the 1x12 extension cab as well, but I can't imagine it's economical to ship. Maybe if we do $200 shipped we can call it even...

    Ignore the article title and whether it carries an ounce of credibility or not: https://reverb.com/news/5-modern-tube-amps-to-achieve-djent-tones I have heard great things about the Archon, but everything I have read has stated it's like a mix or cross between a Rectifier and a Marshall, not a...

    Hey guys - So, I turned on my Lone Star this evening and the 10W setting produces no sound. 50W and 100W are just fine. It was working last night and tonight it's not. Everything sounds fine in the 50/100 settings. UPDATE: Nevermind. You guys are so goddamn great I could hear you in my...

    Its kinda of Incredible on how the Oldy and Free Lepou sounds very similar to the real thing. Bias on the other hand...

    I havent been able to really find any clear info on this, but to me as of now, it sorta makes sense. Being that Eddie was working with Soldano before he went to Peavy, it makes sense that the 5150 would be some what related to the SLO 100 ( I have heard that the 5150 circuit is based on a basic...

    Back in august, one of my good friends died, and now his brother who he shared an apartment with needed help with rent, so I bought the recto from him. However, It's simply too much amp for me and I basically bought it as a favor -- It's a 3-channel triple rectifier solo head. Kinda dirty from...

    Perfect condition, few years old, studio use only. I mean, it's a fecking mesa oversize, what do you want me to say? It's on every other metal album for the last 20 years. £800. Collection very much preferred, but I might be able to meet part way depending on circumstances. If posted, buyer...

    It's pretty well-known that the Rectifier is a SLO in terms of the preamp, and Mike has a pretty good right to be pissed about the original Rectifiers. But Friedman commenting on people stealing circuits is pretty rich. Go to 2:17, that's when they discuss it. Unfortunately the timed link...

    I've been mulling over a smaller / second rig for awhile now that my main amp is at my band's rehearsal pad. For about a year I've toyed with various rig ideas, and I settled on making a smaller recto or Mark rig for the house. I bought this second-hand online, and wasn't sure what to expect. I...

    Been messing around with the triple rec and I have two questions 1) when using a lot of gain and a D tuned guitar that open D sounds like Thunder but undefined. How do you fix that? Tried Maxon OD808 overdrive 0, tone 12, balance 12. 2) what do you do for a bright chimey clean? Is that...

  14. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well lately I've been shuffling around gear. I cleared out my 7 and 8 string which I was never going to use. I sold my 50W 5150III I love the blue channel but the other two channels are mediocre. So my thought was maybe at some point I grab the lunchbox version. In the meantime my local...
  15. Amps & Gear For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    Thinking of getting rid of these, thought I'd see if anyone here has anything they'd like to trade for them. Probably only interested in guitars. Both are in mint condition, come boxed as new. I'll get pics if you need em, but there's not a lot to see.

    So I finally got a Mesa after much research on the forums here and elsewhere. A big thanks to all who gave me advice in my other thread. Well here's what I got. So I actually don't know a lot about it. Fuck all, actually. Just that it's a older 2ch model. I got the serial number so...

    Time to revalve my poweramp section (I say time... It's been time for about 18 months, I've just been lazy as shit. How I haven't had one fail on me live, I do not know :lol: ) I know the inherent differences between EL34 and 6L6 valves, so I'm specifically asking Rectifier users, and your...

    I am having some issues with my mini rectifier. For some reason the tone seems way off. Clean channel with no distortion sounds crystal clear and chimey like usual. But when I add distortion with my mxr super badass it just has way too much mids. Even if I try and scoop it with the eq or my...

    Hey metal heads , So I recently purchased a Mesa boogie single rectifier 50 watt head that I really like. Problem is I'm having a hard time finding the tone I'm looking for. Any setting suggestions for metal? Some bands tones I do like are Synnster gates , Matt tuck and mike Padget from BFMV...
