Product Highlights

Product Description

Unleash a tighter, meaner RECTO! The Rectifier® Badlander™ 100 rackmount is tuned for the times and up for the task of raising the bar once again in Rock tone. Experienced players know there’s nothing like the gut punch, girth and headroom of a 100-Watt head and at the top of the Badlander Family stands the Badlander 100 ready to underscore that perception again.

Two identical Channels feature 3 new super dynamic and duplicated Modes. CLEAN, CRUNCH and CRUSH repeated supply all the gain, shaping power and raw personality you’ll need to navigate any Band or Session environment. The easy to pilot 2-Channel preamp is harnessed with three different and perfect power displacements, each delivering addictive EL34 performance.

Multi-Watt™- 100, 50 or 20 Watts at the Switch
The Badlander 100 features our patented Multi-Watt™ Power Switch that offers three wattage settings; A FULL power of 100 watts running the full quartet of EL34s, a HALF power setting cranking 50 Watts that puts two ELs to their best use, and a reconfigured Triode wired option producing 20 Watts of clip-able sweetness that also runs a pair of output tubes. Each has its own set of benefits and character and together they provide almost limitless possibilities when you consider the pairings with the available preamp Modes, their gain structures and dial-able sounds.

Compared to its 50-Watt sibling, the 100s lower Mids are fatter, fuller sounding and a bit more prominent in the mix, filling in all the cracks to create a balanced, wide, wall of expressive goodness, regardless of where the Mode Switch or GAIN controls are set. You feel the sound in your chest and in your bones and that helps you play with a sense of connectedness and assuredness. It supports you with a feeling of inspiring confidence that allows you to play your best anywhere, anytime.

The Evolution of RECTO Tone
If you’re into big, menacing Tone, we invite you to check out what 51 years designing and building high performance Tube Amps can serve up. From a distinct new Recto Clean, to Crunch and powering on to the realm of Modern Era Heavy, experience the Badlander 100 and our latest evolution of Recto tone. It’s a Rectifier at its core, but not the Recto you’ve come to know.

Tonally, the Badlander 100 delivers stunning clean headroom, tight-tracking Gain sounds that have girth, depth and punch in a wide, 3-D footprint. All 3 of its Modes deliver serious big bore Tone with instant authority through this dynamic power section that leaves you with reserves enough to handle any crowd. Yet big power has never been just about volume, it’s about Tone, feel and vibe as well. The Badlander 100’s power section delivers truckloads of volume if and when you need it, but it’s the balance, touch sensitivity and dynamic control of this mighty engine that makes the Badlander 100 stand out.

Includes 1 Button Footswitch (Ch. 1/2).
