The triple has more gain, power, features, costs more, etc.

However, if you're looking into one of these amps, and you're actually posting on this board, and not headling a tour or something, a single rectifier would work just fine..and cost way less.

Yea Mesa Boogie is a custom shop, you can call them for a free catalog (i believe its like 90 pages and all fancy and color) Although they do sell their stuff through independent dealers, Guitar Center by my house has a wide range of them. As for online pricing this might help you get in the right ballpark: http://www.google.com/products?q=mesa%20boogie&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&startIndex=&startPage=1&um=1&sa=N&tab=wf

In my opinion, as well as almost everyone I've every talked with about the two, the Dual Rectifier is recommended more. 150 watts is more than anyone is ever going to need. Also, they don't achieve more gain, unless by that they meant turning it up louder. My channel volume is always around 10:30 - 11 o'clock, and my master volume has NEVER had to be higher than 10 o'clock. Especially when being mic'd. I've also heard people saying the tone of the Dual is warmer than the Triple, but I have no experience to back that up. My producer, Chuck E. Meyers' has told me between the Single, Dual, Triple and Roadking (which he owns), the Dual is the best of the family. Thats just my 2 cents.

Forget the Dual rec. and the triple, and go with a Mark IV or wait for a Mark V. The Mark Series to me is the best one, although the dual recto is a fantastic amp. I almost got a dual recto instead of my Mark IV, but the Mark's are more for me. All I got to do is get a ISP Decimator (noise reduction pedal) and I'll be set. I suggest you get one of those too if your going to be playing gigs or playing loud.

Really the only difference is Power, and Channels. The Single Recto is 50 watts and only 2 channel, also unlike the other is no rectifier tubes so its tone is a little differnt, but still sounds like the others. The daul Recto, is 100 watt and 3 channels, the tripple is 150 and 4 channels. Other than that, they are the same amp.
