Sup guys?

So I've had my Triple Rectifier for a good two months now and I haven't quite found my perfect tone yet.

I was wondering. For all you rectifier guys, what's your favorite tone? If you can list it all. ie, Silicon Diodes/Vacuum Tubes, Bold/Spongy, Channel 2/3, Modern/Vintage/Raw, EQ levels, Do you boost it at all? If so, with what? And what settings? etc..

Channel 2, Vintage, settings shown in the owners manual (I know, I'm a noob), tube rectifier, bold, boosted with a TS7 is great.

Channel 3, Modern, also owners manual settings, SS rectifier, bold, boosted with TS7 is great.

I also love my cleans with mids dropped to 9:00 and treble boosted to 2 or 3.

Well pretty much everyone I've heard of having these amps usually boost them with a tubescreamer or tubescreamer-esque pedal which tightens them up. I've never played one so I can't say anything else, but the whole Mid hump OD thing is a really popular thing. Level>10, Drive>0 or near 0, and Tone set to taste.

Maybe the price tag is clouding your judgment ?

A boost is a must with a 3 channel Recto.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

This is the tightest and most aggressive tone I've been able to dial in on my Triple.

Vacuum Tubes - Bold - Red Channel - Modern

Bass: 10 o'clock
Mids: 2/3-ish o'clock
Treble: 3 o'clock
Presence: 11 o'clock
Master: 11 o'clock
Gain: 10 o'clock

You'll want to throw an OD in front.

Drive: 8-9 o'clock
Level: 2-3 o'clock
Tone: 2-3 o'clock

Be sure to crank the output past 9 o'clock. With the OD engaged, the low end really tightens up and the high end is drastically tamed, yet still very aggressive without sounding fizzy. A lot of people give the Triple a bad name, but I honestly find it to be more aggressive and have a tighter low end than the Dual.

A good modern tone is easy to dial in. I've been messing around with EQ's for the orange channel set to Vintage for a while now. It's getting there. With the last band I played for, I really didn't have a very heavy tone at all. It was more of a mid-gain crunch on the orange channel set to vintage.
