If you want ultra gain on your leads and then want to switch over to a sweet, bloomy and bold clean channel with huge headroom, this 35watt all tube amp is calling your name! Imagine super high gain but sounding "pretty and sweet" because of its class A 6l6 power section. The clean tone in this amp is Rivera's most beautiful clean channel to date.

Features:
• 35 watts of dual 6L6 Class A Magic
• Two independent channels with 3 band equalization powered by 5 12ax7 tubes
• Lead channel with extraordinary gain and sustain
• Super rhythm channel with oodles of headroom
new channel assignable and foot-switchable Accutronics spring reverb
• Rivera Vintage-Modern switch on the rear panel allows the power to be cut down to 15 watts while enhancing the even order harmonics, making it indispensable for low level recording, small venues performing, and practice
• Detachable power cable as well as the AC mains fuse is easily accessed
• Two speaker jacks and an impedance selector switch allow connection to the internal as well as external speakers
• Line Out jack gives you the option of slaving another amp or recording directly from the power amp signal that is at line level
• An active effects loop with send and return level controls allows easy patching and signal matching to any external signal processor chain
• 3 function FS-7R foot switch is included
• Vintage look with Split Grill

I love everything about this amp - from the two channel, no-nonsense setup to , send-effect loop with level controls, to assignable reverb. The 6L6 power amp section helps to "bloom" the sound as oppose to squishing it as the level and the gain go up. I plug my Fender elite strat directly into the hi-gain input without the use of any dirt boxes in the signal line, and it still pours out tons of gain. Massive headroom in the clean channel. It's hard to believe. The notes chime and are crystal clear. Makes you want to play more and more.
