Tones of the Beast: 10 Essential Heavy Metal Amps
From the Triple Rectifier to the Uberschall, we look at 10 top heavy metal guitar amps.
Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier
No list of metal amps would be complete without the Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier, perhaps the most-cited amp by metal guitarists as the muscle behind their signature tones.
The Triple Rectifier features three fully independent channels with eight modes, allowing for a myriad of clean and distorted tones. Better than nearly any other amp, the Triple Rectifier pays special attention to rhythm sounds. Its powerful third channel allows for maximum chunk, making it a favorite of guitarists who are all about pick-hand precision.
Hand-built in Petaluma, California, you'll find the Triple Rectifier on the backlines of bands as diverse as Cannibal Corpse and Pelican, proof that it may very well be the ultimate all-in-one metal amp.
