Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Guitar Amplifier Head

With its distinctive tone and iconic looks, the Dual Rec has been the amp behind rock for over 25 years. This 6L6-powered amp blasts out 100 blissful watts.

It's been more than 25 years, two generations of guitarists, and several musical trend-cycles since the Dual Rectifier first unleashed its crushing wall of gain on radio. In that time, many have mimicked, modeled, dissected, and plagiarized it, but it remains firmly planted at the center of heavy music; a Rock icon.

Over a decade ago the Recto underwent a massive facelift that greatly expanded its versatility and took what was a two channel amp aimed squarely at high gain only to a three Channel amp capable of roaming any style confidently.

While still leaving the widest, deepest footprint in heavy music, the Dual Rectifier has become the amp of choice for a long list of chart topping devotees outside the world of heavy.

Mesa unearthed a lot of secrets since launching the original Dual Rectifier and have put this knowledge to use in the latest rendering you see here. Improved CLEAN and PUSHED Modes in Channel 1. Improved Modes in Channels 2 and 3 include a more soulful, earthiness in RAW, thicker layers of harmonics, and more liquid gain in VINTAGE and tighter gut-punching attack in MODERN.
