Since 1991, the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier has made its name as the ultimate rock and metal guitar amplifier head, capable of dominating any stage or studio and creating any tone imaginable. The Classic Dual Rectifier features improved channel voicings and multi-watt capability, giving this iconic amp even more functionality.
3 completely independent channels give the Dual Rectifier an extensive range of tonal possibilities. Each channel has an incredibly musical 3-band EQ plus presence, alongside gain and level controls to fully sculpt your sound. The addition of a voicing switch, one per channel, massively influences the sound and response. Channel 1 features a Clean/Pushed switch, for a pristine clean sound or an edge-of-breakup overdrive sound with a vintage flavour. Channel 2 and 3 feature a Raw/Vintage/Modern switch which provide incrementally higher gain levels, letting you access vintage, '80s, and contemporary distortion sounds. With a total of 8 modes, the Dual Rectifier can adapt to any genre of music and overdrive sound imaginable.
The 6L6 valves deliver a huge 100 watts of sound with stunning headroom. Each channel also features a multi-watt 50/100-watt switch, so you can craft the ideal level of headroom and breakup. On the rear panel, you can choose each channel's rectification type including Diode and Tube - Diode has a crisp attack and fast articulation while Tube provides more sag for a vintage-style response. A master power Bold/Spongy switch changes the final amp response, all combining to give you unparalleled tonal control.
The Dual Rectifier is designed to integrate with any rig, with a range of connections for professional performance. Multiple speaker outputs and a slave-out allow you to connect to the cab(s) of your choice, while the tuner out, FX loop (switchable per channel with send-level), and switchable bias (EL34/6L6) give the functions needed to switch valves in an instant and create a professional live/studio rig.
The included 6-button footswitch gives full control over channel switching, FX loop on/off, Mute, Solo Boost, and Tuner, meaning you have remote access to all core amp functions for the ultimate live rig.
