Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier Tube Guitar Amplifier Head (150 Watts)

When you require the loudest and meanest tube amp around, plug into the Triple Rectifier. This three-channel powerhouse pushes an ear-splitting 150 watts.

Another Level of Power Dominance

It's been over twenty 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 another level of power dominance.

A decade ago both famous Rectos 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 Rectos now serve a long list of chart topping devotees both in and outside the world of heavy.

Multi-Watt - Channel Selectable, 50 or 150 Watts of Power for Any Venue

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

Soulful, Earthiness to Liquid Gain and Beyond

The read more awesome glow of the Triple Rectifier power section! Mesa unearthed a lot of secrets in the last two decades and they've used them all in this latest rendering of the Triple Rectifier. Eight 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.

MESA/Boogie 's contribution to modern heavy rock and metal cannot be denied. On the lower end of gain, in both Channels 2 and 3, RAW mode offers an excellent classic-rock style sound. A smooth progressive transition away from the higher end of RAW, VINTAGE takes over offering a fluid tonal transition headed straight toward metal mayhem. Channel 3 delivers a wish list of what heavy aficionados might expect from the original engineers of cascading gain. Switching from VINTAGE to MODERN, fuels an inferno with increased low end, a boost in the high Mids and an aggressive bite unlike any other.

Solo and Output Deliver Control Over All

The SOLO and OUTPUT knobs on the Triple Rectifier are only active when the FX Loop is engaged. The SOLO knob adds extra boost for lead work, and it can be activated anytime quickly via the SOLO button on the footswitch. The OUTPUT knob controls the overall amp volume, and it's ready for action after you have balanced every channel's GAIN and MASTER volumes to meet your taste.

Recto Tube Tracking

Each Channel features Multi-Watt Power Switch (50/150 Watt), Independent Gain, Treble, Mid, Bass, Presence, Master, Channel Assignable Dual Rectification with Recto Tracking (Diode or Tube Tracking Patents 5,168,438 & 7,193,458). Tube Tracking further compresses sound in a very clean subtle manner. If more headroom is needed, Diode rectification is an alternative option for tighter low-end tracking.
