RECTIFIER® CABINETS ARE MESA®'S MOST POPULAR CABINET AND HAVE BECOME AN ICON IN ROCK MUSIC AND THE GOLD-STANDARD FOR 2X12'S AND 4X12'S, TO WHICH ALL OTHERS ARE COMPARED. USED ON MORE HIT RECORDINGS, LIVE STAGES AND BY ARTISTS RENOWNED FOR GREAT TONE
The Home of Tone®
Cabinetry plays a major and sometimes overlooked role in achieving the ultimate sound you are searching for. While your amp offers controls for fine-tuning your sound, no amp will sounds its best without an equally good (or better) sounding cabinet. That’s why it’s so important to choose a cabinet that will not only suit your playing style, but also enhance it and the other equipment you're using.
The MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®) Rectifier® (Recto®) Cabinet Series is designed and constructed using the best materials, speakers and craftsmanship you can own. Our most popular cabinet line also offers the widest array of configurations, sizes and styling, assuring that you can find a Rectifier® Cabinet to fulfill the needs of any tone, feel or footprint you’re looking for.
MESA/Boogie® Rectifier® Traditional 4x12" Quad Cab -
One HECTICALLY TIGHT Road-Ready CAB
The MESA/Boogie® Rectifier® Traditional 4x12" Quad Cab is available in both slant-front and straight-front models and delivers 240watts across 4 x British made Celestion® Vintage V30 speakers. These Traditional Cabs (formerly called Stiletto® because they were recommended with the MESA/Boogie® Stiletto® Ace™, Duce™ and Trident™ Heads) are slightly smaller than our Rectifier® cabinets and produce a tighter, more balanced low end response with an emphasis on attack. The mid-range is more pronounced and this cabinet is often preferred for styles that require a tight tracking, articulate response. The closed-back speaker cabinet is wired for mono or stereo, and constructed from marine-grade Baltic Birch with black TOLEX covering, twisted jute grille, and black piping. Includes removable casters and slip cover.
MESA/Boogie® Rectifier® Traditional 4x12" Quad Cab - DETAILS
When it comes to 4x12 cabinets, we offer a choice of two distinct and different sounding / sized quad boxes. These are
1). our legendary slightly larger "Over-Sized" Rectifier® STANDARD 4x12 Cabs and
2). our wonderful slightly smaller "Regular-Sized" Rectifier® TRADITIONAL 4x12 Cabs.
The TRADITIONAL Rectifier® 4x12 CABINETS are three inches shorter than the OverSized STANDARD Rectifier® 4x12 (width and depth dimensions are the same). This slight size difference produces a tighter and more focused low-end response, though still delivering massive 4x12 punch and authority. Compared to STANDARD Rectifier® (Recto®) 4x12's, the TRADITIONAL 4x12" provides more balance between lows, mids and highs and a greater emphasis on attack. The mid-range is more pronounced and this cabinet is often preferred for styles that require tight tracking and articulate response. STRAIGHT cabinet designs also provide for a small increase of interior cabinet space, which yields slightly more bass and low-end resonance compared to SLANTS.
Some players prefer the STRAIGHT-style cabinets with all speakers attached to a one-piece baffle and all facing the same direction, effectively ‘coupled’ for maximum punch and frontal projection. Other players prefer SLANT-style cabinets, which offers a ‘monitor’ effect due to the top speakers sloping up toward your ears. This can be a benefit when playing live. Regardless of whether you prefer STRAIGHT or SLANT, if you are playing a Rectifier® 4x12, your tone has authority, clarity and detail that only a MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®) Rectifier® (Recto®) Traditional or Standard 4x12 Cabinets deliver.
You simply won’t find a better cabinet. ALL MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®)
ENCLOSURES are made using the finest VOID-FREE, Marine Grade Baltic Birch. Super strong rabbet corners are glued and nailed. Speaker baffles are fitted with superior dado joint construction and braced. Grilles are wrapped around a separate grille board, not the baffle board. Grille material is made of strong twisted jute dipped in a special coating that filters top end for a sweeter response.
A 4x12" CAB WITH A DISTINCTIVE VOICE!
The MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®) Rectifier® (Recto®) Traditional 4x12" Straight Cab provides a great combination of punch, detail, and mid-range voice that's a great match for any MESA/Boogie® amp head - and any player who wants to play through an articulate, responsive rig. Equipped with four Celestion® Vintage V30 speakers, the 4x12" MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®) Rectifier® (Recto®) Traditional Straight Cab features a slightly smaller enclosure size than do MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®) Rectifier® (Recto®) Standard 4x12 Cabinets. The resulting tight response and mid-range emphasis provides you with the kind of tones that cut through any mix and give you great rhythm and lead tones. Since it's built to handle up to 240 watts, the MESA/Boogie® (MESA/Engineering®) Rectifier® (Recto®)Traditional 4x12" Straight Cab can take whatever you can dish out!

★★★★★ Sweet & powerful speaker for my MESA® head
I bought a MESA/Boogie® Mark V® amp head and it has so many features that require a speaker that can be stereo or mono. Boy, oh boy this is a great speaker for that amp head. I have reverb and stereo like no other guitar amp I ever owned. My Fender® Stratocaster® sounds so sweet I play for hours just loving the way it sounds.

★★★★★ Hands down THE best CAB ever!
Best quality built cab I've seen . . . . and I've played 'em all. It sounds great out of the box but give it a couple of weeks to break the speakers in and wow much better. This cab is so solid it feels like one big block of wood. Cant go wrong with this especially with the Celestion® Vintage V30's

★★★★★ The MESA® 4X12 Straight Cabinet
Excellent sound for other amps besides just MESA® amps. Of course it sounds great WITH MESA® amps. Be aware you will be paying extra for air shipping! MESA® is worth it and they seem to know! I now have a Slant and matching Straight cabs for Stereo applications or to stack it with a MESA® or other "Boutique quality" amp head such as EVH® or Friedman®, etc.

MESA/Boogie® (also known as MESA/Engineering®) is an American company in Petaluma, California USA, that manufactures music instrument amplifiers for guitars and basses. It has been in operation since 1969.
MESA was started by Randall Smith as a small repair shop which modified Fender® amplifiers, particularly the diminutive Fender® Princeton. Smith's modifications gave the small amps much more input gain, making them much louder as well as creating a high-gain, distorted guitar tone. Prominent early customers included Carlos Santana, and Ron Wood and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones. Exposure from these top players helped to establish Mesa/Boogie's position on the market, and it is frequently referred to as the first manufacturer of the boutique amplifiers.
Founder, Randall Smith Early Life
Randall Smith was born into a musical family in Berkeley, California in 1946. His mother and sister played piano and his father was the first-chair clarinet with the Oakland Symphony Orchestra, played tenor sax, had a radio show and led a hotel dance band. Smith believes all of his early musical experiences taught him how to hear tone.
As a young Boy Scout, Smith was interested in earning a merit badge in woodcarving. Stan Stillson, the Boy Scout leader became a mentor. Smith and Stan’s son, Dave, were close in age. They became great friends and built ham radios together. Smith’s father had a good friend, Ernie, who built hi-fi turntables and gave him a couple to experiment on until he was 11 or 12.
He attended Miramonte High in Orinda, CA and graduated in 1964. His freshman year he attended UC Santa Barbara, as his parents wanted him removed from the influences of Berkeley (20 minutes from Orinda). However, he would hop freight trains nearly every weekend from Santa Barbara to the Bay Area to see friends and return to the Beat coffee houses and bookstores of Berkeley. The next four years he attended UC Berkeley studying humanities, English Literature and "invitation only" creative writing courses where he mostly wrote accounts of riding the rails with various hobos, but never quite graduated. Most interesting is that he never once took an electronics course in high school or university. His first major electronics was scratch-building Ham Radio transmitter using 6146 power tube. At only around 60 watts, the signal reached Alaska and most of the US.
Prune Music Store
Smith wanted to participate in the burgeoning San Francisco music scene, having been taught clarinet and a little sax by his father, but he took up drums, as it was the easiest to learn quickly. He played with a local blues and jam band and co-founded the band Martha's Laundry, which later morphed into Prune Music store, with keyboardist Dave Kessner. They opened the store in 1967 inside a building that had been a Chinese grocery store. He worked as a repair tech in the back while Dave ran the front of the store. Offshoots of Prune Music continue in Berkeley to this day with Subway Guitars, Sam Cohen (aka Fat Dog) and Guitar Resurrection in Austin, TX with former Martha's Laundry guitarist, Jim Lehman (aka Lizard Slim). They were partners until 1975. Their store never generated a huge profit, but it became best alternative music store in the hippie scene.
"This Thing Boogies"
Mesa/Boogie began with a practical joke: he borrowed a Fender® Princeton (a small 12-watt amplifier) from his friend, Barry Melton of Country Joe & The Fish, and hot-rodded it by replacing the amplifier section with that of a Fender® Bassman and installing a 12-inch speaker instead of the original 10-inch. The resulting amplifier proved to be loud and successful, and Smith made more than 200 of these Princeton "Boogies"—a name allegedly provided by Carlos Santana, who is to have exclaimed "This thing boogies!"
The MESA name came about through Smith's other job, rebuilding Mercedes engines. Smith decided to set up MESA/Engineering® so he could purchase wholesale parts for amps and engines. He needed an official sounding name through which to buy Mercedes parts and building supplies, and chose MESA/Engineering®. As the demand for his amps grew, Randall decided it would be best to move his workshop out of the storefront to get away from the distractions. He relocated to what was formerly a plywood dog kennel, then, eventually, to his home.
THE MESA/Engineering® MESA/Boogie® STORY
Excellence - Living The Code
The story of MESA/Boogie® is an American story. It’s a musical story and a human-interest story, roots to world-renown. It’s based on simple, basic principles that never change or go out of style. It’s a story of doing the right thing, of not taking shortcuts and of never giving up until you achieve, in earnest, what you set out to do. It involves vision, passion, drive, honesty, wisdom, perseverance, trust and the ever-empirical approach of less talk and more action. Undersell and exceed expectations.
It’s a story of treating people with respect, even when it’s not profitable. It’s the story of one man’s vision inspiring two generations of contributors who have both followed and guided their mentor to a place that eclipsed where any could have taken it alone. It’s the tale of a small business owner that never sold out, despite many enticing offers, in favour of keeping it real and continuing to innovate. It’s the story of a worldwide family of fiercely proud devotees with unwavering loyalty.
The story of MESA/Boogie® represents different things to different people; many sounds for many styles, many solutions for many needs, many roads to what we all seek . . . inspiration. Yet perhaps one phrase–one concept more than any other–best captures the essence of MESA/Boogie®; The Relentless Pursuit Of Excellence.
As sunset fell on the ‘60s, the San Francisco music scene was literally exploding. Great musicians from all styles were mixing it up in this counter-culture epicentre where fans of all ages were ripe for the picking and young musical explorers were becoming pop icons overnight.
At the centre of all this new music was electric guitar. As a vehicle for expression, no other instrument offered the versatility, sonic power, and of course sex appeal, of the electric guitar. And while it was recognized as both a rhythm and lead instrument, a twist of fate found drummer and saxophonist Randall Smith preoccupied with the solo potential of the Bay Area’s six-string darling.
While a musical revolution was raging across the Golden Gate, simultaneously in Marin’s Rock Star-studded hamlet of Mill Valley and redwood-thick haven of Lagunitas, young Randall Smith was doing some serious sonic pioneering. With a rich musical background and a love for tube-based electronics, Smith was working diligently toward a high gain revolution of his own in guitar amplifiers.
Even as he was working for the Bay Area’s biggest stars doing amp repairs, behind the scenes Smith was developing a totally new “cascading” tube preamp circuit squeezed into in a compact high power combo amplifier that would change the way guitarists would sound–and play–forever more.
Often using his noteworthy clients as test pilots, one day he had a breakthrough while helping Country Joe & The Fish guitarist Barry Melton. He quickly went home, perfected the idea, and called upon local hero Carlos Santana to plug in and give it a spin. After riding a wave of inspiration for long enough to gather a substantial crowd that afternoon in Mill Valley outside Prune Music’s front window where they met for the maiden voyage, Carlos stopped playing and proclaimed, “Man, this thing really Boogies”! It was a defining moment for the future of electric guitar sounds.
The game-changing little high gain Boogie® would go on to have a huge impact on the music of the ‘70s as guitarists finally had the ability to hold notes indefinitely with their newfound sustain. At the dawn of a new decade, another landmark feature in guitar amplification came out of the Lagunitas shop with the introduction of the world’s first channel switching amplifier in 1980, the MARK II®.
Throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s a score of additional innovative and patented improvements saw MESA/Engineering® emerge as the leader in tube amplifier technology. But none of these vital, now-commonplace improvements sparked the kind of attention MESA received in 1991, when high gain was re-defined once more with the birth of the MESA/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® Solo Head, which commanded the Rock airwaves for the next 15 years.
Forty-five years and thousands of satisfied customers later, MESA/Boogie® Ltd hand-builds the fifth generational offspring of that pivotal amplifier (and many more) now known around the globe as the MARK I Boogie®; the world’s first high gain, high power, compact 1x12 amplifier. That revolutionary little combo is the “missing link” in amp design... the pivotal nexus between Vintage and Modern guitar amplifiers. When it comes to amplified guitar, there’s really just two epochs… before Boogie®, and after Boogie®.
Today, 30 miles from the mountain shack where those first “Snakeskin” Boogies were born, we still hold true to the simple but increasingly rare principles Randy used to catapult MESA/Boogie® onto the world stage. Hand-building the very best instruments we can and treating each and every customer as we ourselves would wish to be treated has kept us there.
We are still privately owned–one of the last American music companies to be so–and have no profit-hungry investors cutting corners between you and your Tone. Every product we make is hand-built in our one and only shop in Petaluma, California and our artisans are tenured with an average of 15 years at their post, many for MUCH longer. We answer to no one except you and our own uncompromising ethical standards.
We are proud of our place in history as the original “Boutique” amplifier company, but recognize that we must still earn daily, our reputation as one of the most respected and prestigious brands in the musical instrument industry. So as you discover our historically important contributions to the art of amplifier design and journey through our vast product line, rest assured we continue to pioneer and improve–as we have from the start – the possibilities for your expression and our unparalleled Customer Service.
We‘d be honoured to be your amplifier company and welcome you to the worldwide family of MESA® players who have found inspiration and the confidence to reach new musical frontiers through our instruments. We have one goal and it’s deeply rewarding to us; to help you sound your very best and be a catalyst for you to achieve your musical dreams.
