Iconic Rectifier® Tone in an Ultra Compact Design - The Mesa/Boogie Mini Rectifier 25-Watt Guitar Amplifier Head

Don't think for a moment that the Mini Rectifier® is a trendy down-line toy or marketing-derived imitation of our mighty Recto®. This is the real deal - in every way a high-end, hand-made, all-tube amplifier.

Lurking within this expensive metal chassis lies one of our most expressive and nuance-enhancing circuits to date and it creates an exciting, adrenaline-producing Tone machine, one of the most fun to play in the entire MESA® collection.

Like its original two-channel forefathers, this Recto® keeps things straight ahead and easy to navigate. This generation features two footswitchable Channels that each contain two Modes, and while it looks basic and drives easy, a world of stylistic versatility lives within these two simple rows of controls.

Two Channels And Four Versatile Style Modes

Two independent channels and four style modes deliver everything from sparking cleans to aggressive fury. The Mini Rectifier's Channel 1 focuses on rhythm sounds, both clean and overdriven. The CLEAN Mode delivers sparkling, big-headroom rhythm sounds that breathe with rich, warm air on the bottom end. When driven to clip and combined with the 10 watt Power setting, this Mode misbehaves with real attitude and shines for urgent, yet soulful, Blues solo sounds and furry Rock rhythm.

PUSHED aptly describes what to do with the second Mode in Channel 1, and here you'll find the next region of gain. With a more stripped EQ and just enough added drive, PUSHED invites aggressive Rock rhythm and Crunch styles to the party, and even taunts your mid-gain solo work, especially in the 10 Watt Power setting.

Channel 2 features the iconic Recto high gain sounds - the iconic liquid wall of VINTAGE and the aggressive fury of MODERN. VINTAGE excels at thick, high-gain chording and single-note soloing with an elastic feel and a broad harmonic spread. It has a looser, more organic sound and the overdrive drapes itself around the notes creating a huge, three-dimensional image.

VINTAGE solo work is further enhanced by the 10 Watt Power position. Here, the attack envelope changes and becomes rounder and more voice-like, while upper harmonics recede slightly to create single note sounds of true beauty. VINTAGE and 10 Watt complement each other in ways that will open new doors for the Recto that were previously open only to more well behaved or "cultured" amps. It may also open wide the eyes of current big-power Recto owners who experience for the first time what this power range/wiring style does for a sound they had typecast. This is a new and exciting face of Recto and it will surely expand its stylistic footprint.

MODERN is the opposite in every way. This aggressive Mode comes right at you - maybe even for you - with stunning attack and a hi-mid bump that keeps things percussive and tracking with hyper-accuracy. It's hard to believe that this amount of gain can be infused and yet still deliver - especially in bass frequencies - with this much speed and definition. But this is pure Recto, and MODERN contributes an equal part to achieving its status as the other most-recorded sound in Rock. Needless to say, MODERN is all about all things Heavy and Metal. And while this sound is best demonstrated using the 25 Watt Power setting, be sure not to typecast MODERN too quickly. Using the 10 Watt Power setting to sweeten the mids and soften the attack here shows another side to MODERN as well that's more forgiving and vocal, creating a great alternate solo voice with a little more punch and dynamic content.

Multi-Watt™ Power Offers A Unique Rectifier Tone Experience

Mesa/Boogie keep saying it, but it's hard to overstate the value, effectiveness and stylistic "power" of the Multi-Watt™ Channel-Assignable Power switches. These dedicated wattage range choices unveil different power characteristics and colors, so they are really also power "voicing" switches as well. In this Recto, the choice of EL84 power tubes with their amazing clip characteristics, prompted us to explore the different wiring schemes possible.

This experimentation led to the 10 Watt power mode being wired for Triode operation. This "more vintage" wiring scheme sweetens and rounds out the sound, turning what might otherwise be a lower volume version of the same voice into a more "soulful" Recto experience.

The 25 Watt setting offers a bolder attack, tighter tracking low end, increased definition, and all out headroom. This setting works great with all the sounds and certainly showcases the mightiness of the Mini Rectifier, shocking unsuspecting players and bystanders alike with power and sonic size. But any time you need to tame this little beast and put a vintage patina of warmth and silkiness around things, kick down to 10 Watts and enjoy a whole new and different world of Recto expression.

Series Effects Loop For Purists

The Mini Rectifier benefits from more than four decades of high-performance amp design, and the Effect Loop featured in this amp is the result of that experience and expertise. The Effects Loop is wired in series with the dry signal to provide the greatest flexibility with the widest variety of FX devices. This FX Loop circuit, when used with quality FX, is capable of providing seamless interfacing with no tonal degradation.

Experience Tone and Power that far exceed your expectations, and completely defy the confines of the Mini Rectifier Twenty-Five’s physical size. Whether you're rockin' hard or putting the immense versatility of the Mini's four Modes to bear on a variety of styles, you'll get years of inspiration and enjoyment from this little gas-in-glass-powered jewel. We always strive to build classics, icons that you'll treasure amongst your most valuable musical instruments. From the feedback they've received thus far, it seems the Mini Recto is on its way toward achieving that status. Try a Mini Rectifier Twenty-Five and see just how big 12 pounds can sound.
