Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier

All-Tube Amp Head

MESA / BOOGIE has reworked its familiar and proven dual and triple-rectifier models to make them even more versatile. In doing so, meticulous comparisons have been made with their direct predecessors and also with the older, 2-channel versions. The goal was to preserve all those nuances that made the rectifier a legend in the first place, and then improve upon them.

All you need in an amp!

David5140, 05.01.2014
This is an excellent quality head with extra headroom due to the 150W power. I would therefore recommend this head particularly for Metal players who like a clear, tight tone for distortion but also for players who like pristine clean tones. However, those that enjoy power tube saturation reminiscent of vintage Rock bands of the 70s can still achieve their favourite tone by choosing the 50W setting.
Also, on each of the three channels (Clean, Channel 2 and Channel 3), one can choose the type of gain they want: For the clean channel it's Clean or Pushed while for the other two channels it's either Raw, Vintage or Modern. The player, therefore, has a wide palette of sounds that can be obtained easily.
More features on the back include the type of overall sound that can be achieved: Bold or Spongy and Tube or Solid State Rectification.
My only wish is that the knobs could have had a midway detent so that the user knows exactly where the midway position is. But this is no big deal and, as said earlier, it is an excellent head and has all you need in an amp! This is why you see it used on stage at so many shows!
Regarding the service by Thömann, it was totally professional and every detail was given attention. I have full confidence in continuing ordering.

Very good versatility

David635, 06.08.2011
I bought this amp directly at the Thomann store and so I had the opportunity to try several before buying it. It is coupled to a cabinet of the same brand. I play with a gibson sg 61. The sound coming out of this amp is just excellent. Good at this price, nothing more normal. But I must say that, contrary to what I thought, this amp is extremely versatile and offers an infinity of settings. Before this one I had tried a marshall jcm 800 and an orange rockerverb. Already there the sound I liked a lot. But passing on the mesa boogie we immediately note that he does not play in the same yard. For each of the three channels you can adjust the presence, the master, the gain, and 3 equalizations. In addition each channel has a vintage or modern mode, depending on the preference of sounds. It is possible to set a solo mode, accessible from the footswitch that works like a gain pedal and that increases the volume of your guitar while playing. Despite the multitude of buttons on the front as behind the amp, the grip is quite fast but it is possible to make very precise adjustments. Finally it always has for each channel a mode 50 or 150 watts which allows to exploit the potential of the amp even on a small stage. It comes with the footswitch and a protective cloth cover. I am fully satisfied with my purchase.
