Have wanted one of these for a long while and managed to negotiate a good deal for it yesterday. It's a mid-90's 2-channel Dual Rectifier.

It's currently set up with el-34 tubes, which I wasn't sure at first how I'd like, but this thing sounds amazing through my Tourmaster 2x12 cabinet. As long as it cuts the mustard in the mix at my next rehearsal, which I'm certain it will, it's a keeper.

So far at least, this thing is a tone monster.

I. Hate. You. So. Much.

Now give us some clips and/or a review so this doesn't get locked- it'd be a shame to see a great NAD like this go to waste.

I'm not a huge fan of the Mesa tone, but I have been GASing for one of these just to try it out to see what the hype is all about. I always associate the Dual Rec with metal and I do more classic rock (which I hear the Dual Rec can do well). At any rate, happy NAD and be sure to post some clips.

Lucky bastard... HNAD!


Also, it's been a while since I've been in GG&A - why does everyone hate the 3 channel?

one of the best, educated and logical posts I've ever seen on UG in the Pit. Well done good sir.

Thanks guys.

Haven't got to spend much time with it yet, but one thing that really stood out to me was how articulate it is. That, and the fact that it's really punchy. Palm mute and chug on the low E, and you feel the thump in your chest. Even though it's often recognized as a high gain / metal amp, I was already able to dial in some incredible classic rock tones with the second channel switched to vintage. Change the setting to Modern, and you don't have turn the gain too far past 1:00 to get into face melting territory. And it's not what I'd consider harsh, it's still creamy, smooth and thick.

So far, it's shown me nothing to make me think it'll be anything other than a legitimate bad ass.
