this is like a triple rectifier with less output section options... see my review of the triple if you want to know how I feel about this over-featured, over-gainy paper-weight....
You could use a dual rec to amplify your guitar if you didn't have an amp that actually sounds good. I will say this though, if you are the indecisive sort and you don't have a strong idea what you want your guitar to sound like, mesa's dual and triple rectifier amps give you about a million knobs and switches to dicker with instead of actually playing guitar. That's kinda my feeling about most mesa stuff after the MK III...
Worth the price of admission!
Download the owners manual. It’s pretty helpful on dialing in the right tone. This amp does ALOT....wish all of the buttons and switches were on the face of the amp. Some rear buttons are fun to play with. You can 50 watt this thing with rearranging and moving some tubes (again, download the manual). I went to great lengths to get a “rev-G” model, great sound......not sure how it compares to other models, this is my first Mesa.
It’s been more than 25 years, two generations of guitarists and several musical trend-cycles since the Dual Rectifier® first unleashed its crushing wall of gain on radio. In that time many have mimicked, modeled, dissected and plagiarized it, but it remains firmly planted at the center of heavy music; a Rock icon. Over a decade ago the Recto® underwent a massive facelift that greatly expanded its versatility and took what was a 2 Channel amp aimed squarely at high gain only – to a 3 Channel amp capable of roaming any style confidently. While still leaving the widest, deepest footprint in heavy music, the Dual Rectifier has become the amp of choice for a long list of chart topping devotees outside the world of heavy.
