Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Head

A New Level of Power Dominance

It’s been over 20 years, two generations of guitarists and several musical trend-cycles since the Dual Rectifier® first unleashed its crushing wall of gain on radio. The Triple Rectifier® takes the world famous platform to a new level of power dominance.

A decade ago both of Mesa's famous Recto®amplifiers underwent a massive facelift that greatly expanded their versatility, moving from 2-Channel amps aimed squarely at high gain only to 3-Channel amps capable of roaming any style confidently. Still delivering the widest, deepest footprint in heavy music, both the Recto® amps now serve a long list of chart-topping devotees both in and outside the world of heavy.

Each channel on the Triple Rectifier features independent wattage controls quickly accessed via the second two-position mini toggle on each of the amp’s three channels. The Recto®’s Multi-Watt™, channel-assignable power amp (Patent 7,602,927) allows each channel to be independently set at 50 or a crushing 150 watts of power. Essentially, you now have the power to harness either 2 or all 6 power tubes to each channel for power ratings of 50 or 150 Watts of class A/B power via the independent 50/150 Watt Power Switches.

Tube complements include 6x6L6 (or 6xEL-34), 5x12AX7 and 3x5U4. Mesa's Bias Select switch (6L6/EL34) offers Fixed Bias for consistent, maintenance-free performance.

Mesa have unearthed a lot of secrets in the last two decades, and they’ve used them all in this latest rendering of the Triple Rectifier®. 8 sound modes across 3 channels are now on tap. The improved CLEAN and PUSHED sounds found in the Triple Rectifier's Channel 1 are based on the popular Lone Star® and Mark V® and offer a full-bodied, well-balanced clean signal, a perfect starting point for shaping your ideal clean tone.
