Cabinetry plays a major role in achieving the sound you are searching for. That’s why it’s so important to choose a cabinet that will not only suit your playing style, but actually enhance it.
FOUR-TWELVE STYLE: When it comes to 4x12 cabinets for heavy sounds, we offer a choice of two distinct and very different sounding and sized quad boxes, our legendary Rectifier® STANDARD and TRADITIONAL Cabinets.
RECTIFIER® STANDARD 4x12 CABINETS are larger than most other 4x12 cabinets producing a thundering low end response and a tailored midrange character. This is our most popular cabinet, at this point an icon in heavy music and is the one used on more hit recordings than we could list here. HUGE Sounding!
RECTIFIER® TRADITIONAL 4x12 CABINETS are slightly smaller and produce a tighter, more balanced low-end response with an emphasis on attack. The mid-range is more pronounced and this cabinet is often preferred for styles that require a tight tracking, articulate response.
Available with slant or straight fronts. The Straight cabinet has a straight speaker baffle.
ALL MESA® ENCLOSURES are made using the finest Void-free, Marine Grade Baltic Birch in varying thicknesses of no less than 9 ply and as many as 14 ply. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed and all backs are gasket sealed to ensure an air-tight seal. Baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grilleboard, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response. You simply won't find a better cabinet.
All of these cabinets are custom built by Mesa Master-Craftsmen, using premium quality materials.
