The Rivera Fandango features 55watts of EL-34 power, 2 independent & foot-switchable channels with boosts. Four different style of cleans can be had on Channel 2 and American or British rock and Blues on Channel 1.
Rivera introduces the Fandango™. With lead tones Approaching the new Knucklehead Reverb, and rhythm and blues tones that Rivera is legendary for, here is the gorgeous looks and tone in a compact package that is easy to transport. Extra deep cabinetry gives you the warm bottom end and the well balanced dynamics of the standard Celestion G12T-75. Couple this with the thick tone of the EL-34s, results in a harmonious blend of just plain outrageously great sound. The newest in our line of handcrafted all tube amplifiers.
55 Watts of vibrant power with (2) EL-34 Output Tubes standard, and a fat and bad-ass tone when pushed. Five 12AX7 Tube Preamp with 2 distinctly different sounding channels with their own independent and discrete 3 band EQ. Tones ranging from the tweed of tweeds, to as brown or blackface as you like it. Channel 1, our lead channel, has a new feature called “Scoop”. It is a push-pull switch located on the middle control, that selects between the classic “Plexi” EQ midrange, and the newer modern modified amp sounds. Footswitchable boosts on each channel, 6 Spring “Hammond Long Pan” reverb, and a special Focus and Presence control for speaker damping and final high frequency EQ round out the tone. On the Focus control, is a push-pull switch “Pull Warm” feature. This activates a circuit that works to enrich the even harmonics of the output stage. A Vintage/Modern switch on the rear panel allows the power to be cut in half and sweeten the even harmonics as well. This will help in achieving a classic AC-30 tone. A serial effects loop with level controls in provided to patch you into most any external effects device. A 3 Function (FS-7) Footswitch is included.
The Cabinet is built of hardwood plywood, and finished in Palomino blonde Tolex with vintage blonde grille cloth and matching blonde Tolex band on the grille top. A comfortable padded leatherette strap handle, rugged chrome corners, and heavy duty rubber feet make easy daily transport.
