« The lesser known Rectifier »

Publié le 03/30/11 à 19:25
The Trem-o-verb is kinda like Mesa's dirty little secret. It's really a mind blowing amp and gets overlooked due to the popularity of the Dual Rectifier. However, I find it actually is better in certain aspects. It features many of the features the Dual Rectifier has, but it also has tremolo, reverb and a blues setting. Aside from that, it should still feature all the well known aspects that everyone loves from the Dual Rectifier.

UTILIZATION

Mesa did a great job at laying everything out on this. It looks pretty much exactly like the Dual Rectifier, and it acts in the same way. The manual does an amazing job at describing what everything does, how each of the tone controls interact with each other, suggested ways to dial the amp in and so on. Mesa has some of the best manuals on the market, so I highly recommend you at least gloss it over, even if you already know how to dial in a normal Rectifier.

SOUNDS

The sound of this is really mind blowing. It's not only more versatile than the Dual Rectifier, but it seems to be tighter, yet more organic as well. The thing really goes into "kill" mode once you boost it, too. However, this amp can do more than just metal. It's a jazz, blues, rock, pop and metal amp all in one. If you can think of it, you can dial it in. It's really only limited by the number of channels it has. Oh yeah, and the reverb and tremolo aren't too bad, either.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a Rectifier and play a wide range of music but can't afford the Road King or Roadster, check out this amp. Why this amp isn't more popular, I have no clue. It's seriously one awesome amp that can deliver tone for days. They go for a decent price on the used market as well. I actually recommend this over the new 2010 Rectifiers if you tend to play more than just metal.
