Triple Rectifier vs. 5150
 
Which one do you guys recomend? The Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier or the Peavey 5150 (aka 6505).

DeathCS 2006-05-27 23:32

money wise, the 5150.
but if i had the money, i'd go for the mesa

Soeru 2006-05-27 23:44

If I had the money, I still wouldn't go for the Mesa, I'd still get a 5150 or a JSX(probably). Consider Engl's and the Madison Divinity too, both very high gain amps(Divinity is more sterile than Engls, so considering you're interest in a 5150 or a Mesa it's probably what you'd like too).

i would say mesa just more choice tone wise

Slabbefusk 2006-05-28 05:15

Divinitys are poorly built. I say no, NO DAMNIT!

i know u guys are going to flame me for this but i pesonally like krank amps, engl amps i here are awesome, but out of the two go with a mesa, it has more gain and sounds better than the 5150 in my opinion.

Casketcrusher 2006-05-28 12:03

Man i'm so conflcted. I love the low crunch I get out of the Triple Rec but I love the sharp highs I get out of the 5150.

i like 5150's more than rectos... i've had both... but i like engl's more, and they're the same price as mesa's in the u.s. and even cheaper than mesa outside of the u.s.

Haha well thats a given now isn't it :p

What DeathCS said. Money wise the 5150, but I like the sound of a Mesa more. And Engl's sound better than both put together.

triple rectifier for sure. I love mesa sound

deathmetalderek 2006-05-30 17:04

i have a 5150.....there really cheap and sound really good....but if i would be to get a mesa i would go with a dual rec......triple recs are way to over powered.....would ha e to turn up a lot to get best tone....

*insert name here* 2006-05-31 02:37

They are in the same class.Touch and go,see if you life Recto tone that much $1000 more.

philkilla 2006-06-06 15:21

Try both god dammit

ahumansdystopia 2006-06-06 15:53

not to hijack the thread but im having the a problim deciding between a dual recta and a powerball I love the sound of both but a family friend is selling his dual recta for $1000 with new tubes and a roadcase.I was wondering what you guys think I should go for.

buy the dual and sell it for 1500.... atleast it sounds to me that 1000 is pretty cheap they go for 2400 euros new in holland.

he's in vegas... you could get a new dual for like $1600-1700-ish these days in the u.s.a. so $1,000 is a fair price for a decent condition recto... but with a roadcase and new tubes, that does sweeten the deal. so for a grand, i say it's not a bad deal at all. even if you end up not liking the recto, you'll still be able to turn around and sell it, for as much, maybe even a little more.

i have had a dual recto, and i currently have a powerball. needless to say i greatly preffer the powerball. but i wouldnt discredit the rectos, they're good amps.

Sure are, Jerry pretty much uncovered Madison's whole cheap ass scam.. thus drilling their shitty company down to the ground. Just search Madison Divinity on Harmony Central..
