This is a side by side comparison of Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier and Mark V. Both of these amps are high gain monsters, but have a unique voicing specific to each amp. If you've been curious what the differences are, we hope this video helps you decide which amp has the voicing for you.

Here are two of Mesa's high-gain monsters. And here with a PRS equipped with passive pickups to play some bad blues and three power chords is Jonah Hill.

tone #1: Dual Rectifier tone #2: Dual Rectifier tone #3: Dual Rectifier Wow, did not see this one coming. Dual Rec sounded thick, heavy, and punchy as fuck. Mark V sounded thin to me. Maybe just the vid's audio or something

The thing is, none of this amp sounds like that LIVE. The recorded sound is totally different to the actual sound. The Mark V is tighter while the Dual Recto is really loose (almost no sustain on single notes). Dual Recto is wonderful for rhythm playing but the leads are awful while the Mark V can cover almost everything.

In this video, the Mark sounds WAAY better than the rec. The rec is too scooped.

His Mark V tones sounded like garbage. My Mark IV blows away all of the tones he had dialed in for both amps.

Listening side by side, I think i prefer the Rectifier.  I know this isn't the full extent of either amp's tone but it does give me an idea
