Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Valve Amp Head

The pinnacle of modern metal & rock tone!

Written by

Sam Beattie

Mesa Boogie are known for making some of the finest guitar amps in the business. The Triple Rectifier is undoubtedly one of the flagships, offering eye-watering precision, volume and cutting-edge US tones. Favoured by such metal heavyweights as Metallica, Testament, Between the Buried and Me, and many many more, it remains the benchmark amp for crushing metal/rock tone.

Here’s what Mesa Boogie say:

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 a new level of power dominance.

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