Dual Rectifier Channel 1
The CLEAN and PUSHED Modes found in Channel 1 are based on the popular Lone Star® and Mark V® and represent some of our best clean and crunch sounds.

It’s been more than 20 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 hard-core… a Rock icon.

A little 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.

On the eve of its 20th Birthday, with still the widest, deepest footprint in heavy music, and now a long list of chart topping devotees outside the world of heavy, the Recto was once again re-worked, re-tuned and refined.

THE BEST RECTIFIER EVER BUILT…PERIOD.

Dual Rectifier's Channel 2 and 3 Offer RAW, VINTAGE HIGH GAIN or MODERN HIGH GAIN Modes
Improved Modes in Channels 2 and 3 include a more soulful, earthiness in RAW, thicker layers of harmonics and more liquid gain in VINTAGE and tighter gut-punching attack in MODERN.

Better sounding and better feeling than any 2 or 3 Channel version that came before it, we had only one mission – To build the best Rectifier yet. Not an easy task but now with our patented Multi-Watt™ 50/100 (watt) Channel Selectable Power, an Improved Effects Loop, Channel Assignable Rectification with Rectifier Tracking™, a dedicated Tuner Out with Mute and an all-new Footswitch, the new Dual Rectifier is more menacing than ever.

But what really has us most excited isn’t all the latest features you see on the front and rear panels. While these are great and really useful, it’s the NEW TONE and range that has us most fired-up!

We’ve unearthed a lot of secrets in the last two decades and we’ve used them all in this new rendering. Improved CLEAN and PUSHED Modes in Channel 1. Improved Modes in Channels 2 and 3 include a more soulful, earthiness in RAW, thicker layers of harmonics and more liquid gain in VINTAGE and tighter gut-punching attack in MODERN.

Solo Output
The SOLO knob provides a Footswitchable variable Volume Boost for lead work, activated anytime via the SOLO button on the footswitch.

Reviews

  • "It would be a vast understatement to say that the Dual Rectifier is a flexible amp. It is the standard of tonal flexibility by which its competitors are judged. Such versatility makes the amp a good practical buy for guitarists who prefer not to have one amp per musical style.”
