back from bannination. Well, are you supposed to use the distortion on a Mesa Boogie Dual Rect or are u supposed to use a tubescreamer in front of it?
#3
i mean, more in terms of sound quality.

[edit]

thanx for your optimism~!!!!1 -_-

definetly the distortion on the boogie itself, when you have a dual rec, the tubescreamers only good for boosting your tone for a solo, but the 3 channel rectifiers have that option built in now...
#5
you bought a dual rectifier and are thinking of not even using the distortion on it... you should be shot and pissed on

and you don't need a stompbox for a solo boost, it has that feature, or at least mine does
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

well it has enough gain for most rock by itself, but you may prefer the color that an overdrive or tube screamer could provide.

if you do it right you can get a cool compressed distortion out of it wich alot of metal bands use. Sounds great in the mix with bass etc.

It is going to sound very compressed... It might also be too noisy for you. But give it a shot and see if you can do something with it.

Personally I would only use the Tubescreamer on the clean channel to play some blues or to get some nice light grit in my sound. I would let my recto worry about rockin out. That is what I would do.

If you want a pedal that can give you a crazy boost for your solos (other than your mesa solo option in your amp) - I mean a solo boost that will cut through the thickest distortion you've ever heard then check out this pedal.

Crazy stuff. Well Good Luck.

well, you sure lived up to your name! Just playing. It'll sound good just with the amp's distortion.

you can use either. if you use a tubescreamer, you're just boosting the distortion that's already there anyway, and it might tighten up the recto...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

tighten? compress?
honestly, idk how a compressed sound sounds like. so shoot me.

^ tighten i think, not really compress (though it may do that too).
