I bought this amp from a lovely gentleman down in Southampton. I only paid £200 at the time, sadly he passed away (he had MS and had to shift his gear).
It's a lovely amp, it weighs a tonne (32kg), I've used it in a practice room a few times. I'm not to fond of the distorted sounds but the clean channel is gorgeous. I was using it as a pedal board platfom. So why am I selling?
Like a fool I replaced the preamp tubes in the amp, and this seems to have affected the overall volume of the amp. It's still a loud amp, but I was struggling to keep the clean channel clean over a bassist and a drummer. I can't find anyone reputable who can service the amp in the south west. I do have the FS5 footswitch as well.
At the start of lockdown I bought myself a Orange Rockerverb head and cab, and that is much more my style (basic haha). I would really like this amp to go to somebody who can get it serviced and will use i
I have downloaded and printed the manual for the Rivera, the reverb channel has a slight hum and I suspect the amp needs a new set of valves and a service (the effects loop is crackly etc). So this is reflected in the price. I'm not after making a huge profit, hence the super low price.
I'm in Bristol, so ideally it would be collection only. No shipping
I'm really not into trades, the only thing I'm eyeing up at the moment would be a Mexican Tele with a maple neck or a Classic Vibe tele with a maple neck. Both would have to be the classic layout (two single coils with vintage style heads), the condition of the guitar is almost irrespective. I would be more interested in the condition of the fretwork.
I would love to change my username, but I fully understand the T&C's (it was an old band nickname). So please feel free to call me Dave.
