Hi. I have been thinking of checking out pedals that claim to have
single/dual/triple rectifier sounds/tones. Nothing serious, just wanting to
check-out dirty metal tones from these "rectifier" type pedals.

* AMT Electronics II R2 Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Pedal
R2 of the Legend Amp Series II represents the response, characteristics, gain,
and tonal nuances similar to that of Mesa Triple Rectifier Amplifiers.

* Dr Boogie Rectifier Distortion/Overdrive Guitar Pedal
Designed to provide "Modern High Gain" Mesa Boogie Rectifier sound/tones

* R3FX Resistafier * The Resistafier is a high gain pedal
that can get you into the Mesa Dual Rectifier zone

There are other pedals that offer rectifer sounds.
Have not purchased or played them yet, but will soon have some fun.


My question is: are there any pedals made that use rectifier tubes?
Or have small versions of rectifier tubes in their circuitry?
Or do all of these "rectifier type" pedals simply solid state? Why?

You need to learn what a rectifier does.

Hi, Trashed.
My thinking is: are there any pedal designs that by-pass an external adapter
to convert AC to DC with a rectifier tube within a pedal.

Not that it is related, but my Tube Works "Real Tube Overdrive" pedal (pictured)
is an "OCD sized" stomp box with: VOLTAGE REQUIREMENTs = 120 VAC, 9 WATTS.
IMHO, the Real Tube is a DC pedal, not an AC pedal, right?

Wondering, if a circuit with a rectifier tube has been,
is or could be used in pedals. Simple as that.

Man, why the **** would you do that? You thinking it will introduce sag or something? All they do is convert ac to dc. You wouldn't put a rectifier tube in a pedal. I don't think you realise how stoopid the concept is.

No one uses the tube rectifiers in a Dual Rec either....

TS got some things mixed up.

The Mesa Boogie Single/Dual/Triple Rectifiers are AMPS, that have both tube and solid state rectifiers in them, that's where they got their name.

However, pedals that simulate Rectifiers aren't simulating or using tube rectifiers, they are emulating the overall tone of the Mesa Rectifier AMPS.

You're right, and i apologize. I shall use a tube rectifier to rectify my mistake. Or is that not possible? Has it ever been done before?

you can only rectify it to mist. you'll need a flux capacitor to smooth it to m. past that, you're shit out of luck. you could try putting backwards/forwards slashes on either side respectively.

Damn. That requires new calculations, or it would ruin my tone completely.
I'm looking to get a sweet, round tone, vaguely reminiscent of french fries but with a light bulb aftertaste. Would a new torque wrench add a bouquet of wet dog distortion to my pedal?

don't even bother with that. get a taiwanese ds-1, hit it squarely with an axe, and then run it full bore into a klon.

That's way too much for me to handle. Would you consider doing that and shipping it to me?
I would pay you for your work, obviously. I can pay you in either Gil, Galleons or Red Orbs.
