I own a Discontinued Reverderocket R212R/50w. I looked a long time for this amp,and finialy came across a used one,that I had to have! I own several Fender Amps/Tube Models/but the Ampeg kickes their butts on sound quality and overall performance

A quality blues amp

By Don-2mKb5

from San Diego, CA

See all my reviews

This Ampeg is a very nice amp for someone who doesn't want a overpowering twin, that has thick, bluesy harmonics, and doesn't cost and arm and a leg (just maybe a leg, you don't need that to play guitar now do you?) I found the Fender Twins, even the American Hot Rod series with less watts to be blaringly loud and not particularly musical when overdriven on the clean channels, which is what I like to use. The Marshall amps are quality, but I found them harsh sounding when driven hard, I know some people like that Marshall distortion, but it doesn't sound as rich to me as this Ampeg. The price of the Ampeg is also less than the top Fender and Marshall twins (although a little more than the Fender Hot Rod Americans). While not a true metal amp, it puts out great tone and you can certainly crank it and make the drum heads rattle. It's truly a blues machine.

Clean of Heaven

By Clean of Heaven

from Chile

I have any kinds of guitar amps, but this!! Its incredible!, the clean its really oustanding. In my opinion, the clean is the most important feature in the amplifier, because if you want to make mix sounds, chorus, delay, overdrive or distortion. The result its better on a great clean instead on bad clean.Sorry for my bad english, I speak spanish.Bye

Blown away at the House of Blues

By Wolfen

from Switzerland

Got stuck in Cleveland last week and gigged on Jan 26,2011, in the House of Blues. When I asked for classic rock turbe tone, they gave me this amp, miked it up on stage and we took of for a mini-gig. Clean as well as overdrive, this thing is all about tone. From Beatles over Kravitz, Purple to AC/DC, you do not have to dial around with this amp, the right sound is easy to find, has plenty of headroom, so that you can drive it from your guitar. I played a PRS CE22 that night, and it was pure tone - pure fun. I never had an Ampeg myself, used Marshall, Laney, Mesa, Line 6 and for a while now Hughes & Kettner (Tube 20 & a Zentera), but this things plays in the no-fuzz top-league, as my Hughes & Kettner Tube does. AAA+!

Best Amp for blues

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

If you want a nice blues tone then this amp is for you. you don't have to dial around at all. you can get classic 70s hard rock drive on it almost identical to purple and zeppelin. the clean channel works extremely well with jazz also. the best tube amp i've ever played.

This is an amazing multi-purpose amp.

By Enigma523

from Bloomington, IN

I use this amp for a number of purposes. I play rythem for my band, but the lead player uses it for recording. It has held up very well and maintianed all of it's sound quality. The cabnet is very sturdy and the speakers handle full volume with ease. It is, however, a tube amp and subject to the benifits and problems associated with tubes. While it is more road worthy than many tubes amps I have seen and used, it is not as duriable as a quility solid state. However, the amp has a very warm tube sound and the controls are very easy to use (not jumpy at low levels). Overall, I believe this to be a good quality amp and a decent value.


Not enough said

By Wolfie-63FP0

from KC/MO

This is the third time I have tried to write a review.There is not enough said about this Amp. I have used every Major Amp on the market and some that are not. I run this amp through a Korg floor pandora and play a hot rod custom shop Strat. Oh my %^&* what a sound. As the lead guitarist for our band I can say TONE and then TONE. It will run 4 twelves along with the two it comes with. With an adapter snapped on the speakers and then the power is enormous. My Marshall pales at the tone this little amp can produce. If it catches one watch out Marshall.



By Kevin -Fp4sE

from Cincinnati ohio

This amp is incredible. It has a great tone on both channels. I play in a loud rock band. unfortunately the high gain channel is not loud enough at the 50 watts to cut through with my band. However the cleaner channel does. When cranked this channel as well yields an awesome sound also. This amp really reminds me of an orange but at a 3rd of the price.

Ask me a question

I bought mine and was a bit skeptical. Until I got it home and plugged in and was blown away by the tone. Rich fat vintage tone, better than my Pro-reverb or Vibrolux that gets better the more you turn it up. It's so addictive you want to play it all the time. The distortion channel has a bit of a mushy bottom end if you push the gain too far but for solo work it sings! This is an awesome amp and a steal at this price! It looks vintage, sounds vintage, what more could anyone possibly want? I would gladly buy another if mine became lost.


R212R review

By Zman-5Kjd9

Sounds outstanding whether the volume is at 2 or at 8 for both the clean channel and the overdriven channel. You want FAT/super clean/smooth fat distortion? You found it... it's R212R!


Monster tone amp

By Dogbark-egV4h

from Moline Illinois

See all my reviews

This is a monster tone amp, with a fat rich sound and great reverb. I use to own a Ampeg Rocket in the 60s, traded it off have owned harmony, Gibson Peaveys, Fender, Sunn, GKs, Vox and now two Marshalls amps, but the Ampeg R212R is quickly becoming my all round amp of choice. It has the all controls you need on top where they belong. And the two Ampeg 12" speakers really blast out the amazing tube sound.


Ampeg Reverb Rocket

By Greg-Ktfcq

from Columbia, SC

I think this amp is pretty good, it has some really bad freq. on it though, so it'll sqeal all night no matter what guitar your playing with. Other than that it is a great amp with great sound, whatever type your looking for.


Its a Perfect 10

By Pluto

from San Francisco, CA

Ultimate powerhouse amp without compromising its sound quality with digital craps. I have spent hundreds of dollars on EQs, enhancers, effects, etc... to emulate the clean sound of this legendary and unique ampeg before I bought this amp. Distortion channell is incredible, smooth/fat/full/sweet sustain sister/...of course this is pure tube power talking...not pod or other pedals...they don't even come close!!! I can't wait to have 100 watts all tube ampeg guitar head!!! C'mon Ampeg...don't keep us waiting too long.


Styling looks and sounds!

By Nu-tra

from California

Fat tube tone that cuts through everything. I have never been happier with a amp and I have owned very expensive boutique amps. I just wish they made a extention cab!


Pretty Awesome

By Gibsonrulesfender

from Chelsea, Mi

Not a bad amp. This amp sounds amazing and has a really nice clean channel that compliments my blueshawk well. The distorted channel lacks bass for some reason, but other than that I have no problem with this amp. Don't expect it to keep up with a 150w line 6 spider combo (i know, my band mate has one) or something of that nature, but it still is pretty loud, and certainly loud enough for smaller gigs. Don't worry though, it has a line out so for the big gigs you can run it into a pa. I had a weird problem with my line out, but in theory it works.


Solid Tone

By SpiffCheese

from Kutztown, PA

See all my reviews

I've owned an R-212R now for about 10 months and I use it almost every day. It's a great sounding amp, though paradoxically, not quite the sound I am looking for myself. Very smooth tone, very well built. This is a good amp and I'd put it's sound up against any other in it's category. I also run a bass through it occasionally and that sounds pretty sweet, too.
