This tube-driven guitar amp head swells with pure attitude.
For those in the know, the 50-watt guitar amp head has been an underground secret in the world of rock 'n' roll for three decades. Offering a truly useable power band with a bright, fast top end, the vibe of these mid-power amps has always been brash and urgent, with a rebel disposition.
To create the American version of this genre, Mesa Boogie took all the essential circuitry and ingredients of its fabled Dual Rectifier and simply stepped down the displacement to a single pair of power tubes. Based on a diode-rectified, two-channel platform, Mesa included all the highly developed preamp voicings found aboard the Rectifier amp head's big-powered relatives. Channel One sports two modes: the tight and spanking Clean—which can be dialed up to a classic vintage purr, and Pushed for a spicy, brown, mid-gain clip.
Channel Two on this Mesa Boogie tube amp boasts the identical three modes offered by the Road King and the Dual/Triple Rectifiers: Raw, Vintage and Modern high gain. These three voicings cover the spectrum in a stair-step format with Raw making the transition from furry-clean through a bluesy, roots clip. Then Vintage High-Gain takes over and continues up the gain scale into a liquid, violin voice that glows with amber warmth. Modern, a blistering High Gain mode, delivers pure Recto aggression, the heaviest sound ever, featured on countless recordings and stages worldwide.
The Rectifier name appears on the panels of many imitators though it all started with Mesa Boogie and the years they dedicated to creating these sounds from real tube technology.
