Manufacturer's Description from Mesa Boogie

The Rectifiers® gave birth to a defiant pack of 50 watt gangsters with one thing on their mind: Pure Recto® Attitude.

For those in the know, the 50 watt head has been an underground secret in the world of rock and roll for three decades. Offering a truly useable power band with a bright, fast top end, the vibe of these mid-power amps has always been brash and urgent, with a rebel disposition.

To create the American version of this genre, we took all the essential circuitry and ingredients of our fabled Dual Rectifier® and simply stepped down the displacement to a single pair of power tubes. At Mesa®, we only know one way to do things: the traditional, hand-built, all-tube way. And with a bloodline like the Dual Rectifier, who would dare tarnish such an icon? Last of all us!

Based on a diode-rectified, two-channel platform, we’ve included all the highly-developed pre-amp voicings found aboard its big-powered relatives. Channel One sports two modes: the tight and spanking Clean —which can be dialed up to a classic vintage purr, and Pushed for a spicy, brown, mid-gain clip.

Channel Two boasts the identical three modes offered by the Road King™ and the Dual/Triple Rectifiers®: Raw, Vintage and Modern high gain. These three voicings cover the spectrum in a stair-step format with Raw making the transition from furry-clean through a bluesy, roots clip. Then Vintage High-Gain takes over and continues up the gain scale into a liquid, violin voice that glows with amber warmth. And finally …Modern. This blistering High Gain mode delivers pure Recto aggression, the heaviest sound ever, and featured on countless recordings and stages world-wide.

About Manufacturer

Forty-five years and thousands of satisfied customers later, MESA/Boogie® Ltd. hand-builds the fifth generational offspring of that pivotal amplifier (and many more) now known around the globe as the MARK I Boogie®; the world’s first high gain, high power, compact 1x12 amplifier. That revolutionary little combo is the “missing link” in amp design... the pivotal nexus between Vintage and Modern guitar amplifiers. When it comes to amplified guitar, there’s really just two epochs… before Boogie, and after Boogie.
