Cali Rectifire (MESA Boogie® Dual Rectifier®)

Cali Rectifire, the Helix model of a MESA Boogie® Dual Rectifier®

The Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier is a 3 channel, 50/100 watt amp with stock 6L6 tubes that can be swapped for EL34's. The channels each have individual modes, giving you many combinations of tones in one single amp.

The Helix only models one of the channels of the amp, probably channel 2 in Modern High Gain mode, but this is just an educated guess.

The well known users of this amp are James Hetfield, Kim Thayil from Soundgarden, and almost every late nineties/early 2000's nu-metal band.
