rectifiers

  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I'm thinking about picking up a used dual or triple rectifier. But to be honest I don't know a lot about music gear and tube amps. I seen there is a bit of variety. I know duals are 100 watt and triple are 150. But there is also two channel and three channel rectos. Is there a huge difference...

    Hey guys - It seems there are a lot of Mesa heads/combos, etc., out there and everyone has their favorite flavor but I'm curious about the practical differences between some of these amps. For instance, what's the real difference between a rectifier and a Lonestar or Express? Many people say...

    Do you guys recommend anything in particular from stock?

I run the 4 cable method with my HD500, and I'm able to get crunchy, badass sounds at relatively...

    So in my (admittedly limited) experience with Mesas in the past, I've never been all that impressed. However, I just got back from band practice, where I got to use a Dual Rec Solo Head, and hoooly shit. I've been using a 5150 II and while it's certainly brutal, it doesn't have the clarity...

    I just kinda want to get an idea for what you guys like. Poll limit is 10, so I condensed a little bit. I know alot of you guys like the newer triples to the older duals, so say that in your response here if that's how you vote. For me, I'm a big fan of both the recto amps and the mark amps...
