I have personally owned a mesa triple rectifier and have played many other mesa products. While I agree that they are severely overpriced, I have found that the quality is absolutely stunning.

As for the power ratings, I haven't come across any that were fudged. Triple rec 6x6l6GC=150W dual rec 4x6l6GC=100W Thats only 25W for a tube rated at 30W.

Mesa has a valid and good argument on the biasing topic...............really only to sell their relabeled Chinese tubes........

Again, It is not just mesa that I notice this. Randall, Soldano, Peavey and a whole slew of manufacturers do it almost always 220K feeding 1.5k-2.5K grid stoppers per pair.

one of my favorite sites out there..


Hi Brian in regards to ouput power I wasn't taking about mesa amps, it was another big amp maker.
