    So I've been interested in getting a Rectifier for a while now, but I'm recording a band right now who use a Triple Rec for their tones and I'm blown away. The tone is so fuckin' good that I've really fallen in love with the Rectifier tone. Between these guys and Testament's The Gathering, I'm...

    Saw this shared on Facebook earlier today: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/it-looks-like-mesa-has-discontinued-the-roadster.1825465/ ...and sure enough, if you look at the Rectifier line-up, it's mentioned in the text but no longer listed below: The Rectifier Series |...

    Well, this really is long overdue since I got the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster amp head from Garrett over 3 months ago and I got a 2x12 Mesa Boogie Rectifier cabinet about a week ago. But here's a pic. No, I'm not gonna spoil you and take a ton of pics. You're lucky to get one pic! :lol:

    Up for sale is my Mesa Roadster, purchased last year used from a local shop. It was retubed all the way around with Mesa 6L6's and a preamp kit from Doug's Tubes shortly after I purchased it. It is in good shape, and comes with cover, foodswitch, and footswitch cable. Sounds great, just WAY too...

    I'm hearing volume fluctuations in mine, which makes me think the tubes are probably due for a swap. What's good, for less than Crooks' servants' dry-cleaning budget? I tend to like round and midrangey lead sounds, and I'm not concerned with uber tight low end. I've got Tung Sol 6L6GC STRs in...
  11. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Well I had a bunch of gear that I was looking to see what I could get for it. So I brought in a PRS SE245 (neck is too chunky for my liking), Eden WT500 (too valuable to be gathering dust as I'd much rather devote my time to guitar instead of bass), Visual Sound Compressor (meh) and Vox...

    Hey Everyone I have for sale a Mesa Dual Rectifier Roadster with foot switch and cable, sounds great and not as dark as some of the other roadsters I have played. Amp is in good shape and tubes are in great shape. You can hear this amp in Noodles Video for his 7 string classic. I purchased...

    I wasn't happy with the DSL100 I had, so I went to my local shop to try out the Rectoverb 25/Mini Recto. Found this for a few bucks more used (got a hell of a deal on it) and definitely preferred it to its little brothers. I'm still dialing it in but making good progress so far. This...

    I blew a fuse in my Roadster back on Wednesday the 24th. I didn't have any spares and they were cheap, so I ordered 5 from Mesa on Thursday the 25th. They're currently out for delivery. I also ordered a set of Tung Sol 6L6s, in case my issue was one of my tubes going bad. Those are ALSO due...

    So Drew and I did this yesterday: And made a big ol' Reaper project with all of the modes for channels 3 and 4, as well as Ch2 Brit and Fat (I didn't bother with the cleans). For each setting, I have a neutral (all knobs at noon, including the master), a Drew's Way and a Chris's Way. I'm...

    So, I think I posted this before in my NAD thread, but I went back to watch it again and thought it might be of interest all on its own. What you're hearing is budda and I jamming, him with his custom LP and me with my Warmoth Hermaphrocaster. He's running through a couple pedals...
