is it trade name of the mesa boogie amp
or is it some kind of effect.........
you know google helps a lot if you are just willing to type.
Rectifier is a simple and stupid device which converts ac signal to dc signal. (and overrated among tube amp snobs)
The Rectifier that you see on Mesa's is a snob statement that "my amp has a tube based rectifier" rather than the usual diode-based rectifier.
HOWEVER, rectifier has got very less if anything to contribute to the gain and clipping - hence, the tone of the amp.
You calling us snobs? We got a problem here lad!
I was calling Mesa Boogie blokes as snobs.
If you bought it beacuse of t00b rectifier, then you are also included
Not to be a dick, but most bands that use Rectifiers actually sound good. And they do sound good....It's got the chugga chugga ssound. If i ever bought an amp, that would be it too.
If you buy a Mesa for its tone, then you aint being a dick, in anyone's opinion. It does have bone crunching grind.
Yazi, you ever tried doing a MT-2 into Mesa Recto?
Cannibal corpse is supposed to gets its ultra-brewtal metal tone doing that.
I aint got an MT 2 but will try that. Dun listen to Cannibal Corpse at all. But the other day I nailed the 'I'm Broken'(pantera) tone with it w/o any external aid!
The reason i asked i cause i read about getting rectified sounds....is it just about matching the mesa, or does the tube rectifier add something to the distortion.
Is it clear now?
Separate names with a comma.
