Does anyone know how much it costs to repair the tubes on a Mesa dual rectifier head (the services and actual tubes)?

I'm about to buy a used Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier half-stack for 1200 and I want to know if I'm getting a good deal due to the tubes not working.

Opinions? Answers? Thanks.

I'd say it's a decent deal. A lot of the time dual recto's sell for about $1,200-$1,300 on ebay with everything in perfect order, with new tubes, or on occasion a whole set of spare tubes.

A full retube on a dual recto, including the rectifier tubes is like $220. If the rectifier tubes work fine, take off about $100.

Not bad, that's still like half the price of the original right?



Nah. The normal Dual Rectifiers are I believe $1,799 new. The Roadster which is quite a bit better runs $1,899 new. You should also be able to grab a Mark IV, which IMO is worlds better than both of them for about $1,400 used. $300 more and you can find a roadking on ebay.

Oh yeah but I was talking about the price of the half-stack not just the head.

I'll admit I'm kind of confused right now.

I'm getting both the 4x12 cab and head for $1200.
