When you have a talent like playing the electric guitar, you deserve to showcase your musical savviness with an amplifier that was built by experts. With that in mind, Rivera has been dedicated to providing guitarists with high-quality guitar amplifiers since 1976. Today their unmistakable sound is championed by guitarists from all over the world, including The Strokes, Vince Gill and Ani DiFranco. In other words, if you're searching for an amp that's capable of making your killer skills realized by an audience, then you've come to the right place.
Before choosing a guitar amplifier, it's always a good idea to consider your own needs and preferences first. After all, if you're looking for an amp to simply record with or play in the comfort of your home, you won't need anything too loud. If this sounds like what you're after, then check out the RockCrusher Recording. Offering a thick and crunchy overdrive at practice levels, it's also loaded with many cool features. To name a few, there's an attenuation/bypass switch, two styles of equalization (Edge and Warm), a level meter that lets you monitor the power input or line output, and even a selectable 8 or 16 ohm impedance level switcher. Powerful and easy to use, the RockCrusher Recording is incredible for home studio projects.
Now if it's an acoustic combo amp that you're searching for, then go with the Sedona Lite. Packed with 55 watts of dynamic EL-34 tube power, this amp has a 12" Celestian G12T-75 and a liquid-cooled dome tweeter that can be switched off if you decide to use an electric guitar. Ideal for small-venue and lounge performers, the Sedona Lite is a perfect example of Rivera's stunning craftsmanship and superior tone.
And these are only two of Rivera's many exceptional amplifiers, so take a look at the rest of their catalog. Whether you're a bona fide rocker who's after '70s crunch or an acoustic strummer who's getting ready to hit the stage, Rivera has an amplifier for every taste and playing style.
