mesa triple rectifier

    I´m about to buy a Mesa Triple Rectifier and as most of you already know, these monsters plays LOUD at 150 watts. Much too loud for basement practice unless you live alone 10 miles out in the desert, which is not my situation. I just read about this little device called THD Hot Plate Power...

    I've got a year old 7VWH and there are so many little details that need to be worked out... one of my concerns is the neck pickup is dead... zero harmonics and almost no bite which is totally the opposite of their description, the pinched and tapped harmonics also aren't very strong could this...

    I thought this would be a funny thread. I just spent an hour trying to remember everything i had and what i still have. It's bad, i have a horrible memory. It runs in the family. Also, i have a large collection at my young age. However, i thought i'd be worth a few yucks if everyone shared a...

    No, this is not a sexual question. I'm just wondering why some people use rackmounted heads (i.e. Mesa Stereo 20/20) instead of a regular head (i.e. Mesa Triple Rectifier).

    Right....since it's getting VERY CLOSE to the end of the year (already), I thought I'd start a thread where we can all share our aromatic experiences:) This years been a bit gassy! Even though I was unemployed for nearly 4 months! Okay.......in March, I saw a deal for a Korg D3200. Musicians...

    Hey all I was just on another board and someone came up with the idea to list every amp you have ever owned. I did as many as I could remember, which I think is all of them and I got bummed thinking about how much money I spent on different amps just to get rid of them for a different amp later...

    I need a list of 4-channel amp heads to check out. I'm talking about solid state or tube heads, not digital modelling (i.e. Line 6 or Vox Valvetronix stuff). I'm talking about independent channels with their own set of controls (volume, gain, bass, mid, high, presence, etc). So far, here's...

    I am looking a buying a Peavey JSX 212 Combo. I would like to hear if anyone has any experience with that amp, especially with the 7DBK (or any of the other Jem's with Breed's). Thanks, Brent.

    Hi, I have 2 Dimarzio air classics and a Dimarzio blue velvet single coil (low output) I was wondering, is there any way of boosting my output without changing my pickups or using pedals? See I like to take my guitar to guitar shops and play it through different amps, but it just sounds crunchy...

    Alot of people have been telling me that the older duel channel rectifiers are much better then the newer triple channel rectos. Can anyone clarify on this? I'm thinking of purchasing a Dual Rectifier in the future and will probably want to get it new rather then second hand so i want to know...

    I currently have an Ibanez RG7421XL, with the stock pickups. I wanted to change the pickups to dimarzio blazes, but I'm not sure if it would get me the tone I'm after. I'm after a Sevendust kind of sound, bassy and warm but not so much it's dark sounding, bright and edgy but not so much it's...
