    A band I'm working with on a record wanted a really big fat rhythm guitar sound. This of course didn't help my mad amp GAS... So I caved and this showed up today:

    A Mesa Dual Rectifier solo, Revision G. Serial in the 12,000s, so 1995. Absolutely stellar shape considering it's as old as I am. Haven't miked it up just yet, but I may have some clips for you tonight... The sound is unreal though. These things are absolutely fucking huge sounding.

    It has JJ E34Ls in it, which I greatly prefer in these amps to 6L6GCs. Quite a bit tighter than I expected.

    I’m loving the 2 channel Recto resurrection lately haha. Nice score. I agree that this is a particular Rev that sounds good with E34L tubes. It helps tighten that bass response and adds more mids where the tone stack scooped them out a bit.

    Happy NAD! I would love to hear what an EL34 Dual Rec sounds like, boosted and unboosted. Hope to see those clips!

    They sound insane IMO. The only reason I sold mine was the loop sucked and I wanted 3 channels :lol: Pretty much the dumbest reason to sell it...

    Congrats! I went through my fair share of rectifiers until i landed a 2 channel triple. That was the first one I ended up liking. They have a rawness to them that the 3 channel lacks IMO.

    Congrats! I loved mine, it had E34L tubes as well. Only reason I had to part with it is I just picked up a multi-watt.
