I purchased this great amp new in 2011. Had a wonderful time playing it in my home studio. Have never gigged with it. I have four other amps and do not have a need for this one. It deserves to be played.
Mint condition – there are absolutely no marks on it at all.
I just replaced the power tubes. No issues with the amp.
Here’s what Rivera says………
Designed with magnificent tone and cool running in mind, this new amplifier embodies the Rivera ideal of fabulous sound with outstanding reliability. All of the heat producing key components of our new Venus™ 6 amplifier have been mounted on a industrial sized heatsink and are on the outer surface of the chassis. The USA made transformers are oversized and are rated for at least double the power output of the Venus 6. Rivera is the first to make a small idle current adjustment possible with the Class A circuit, allowing a wider range of tubes to be set to the correct idle current, again, assisting in reliability and field maintenance.
Featuring a five 12AX7 tube preamp configuration with two independent Channels, each with it’s own footswitchable boost. Channel 1 is a high gain and British inspired lead channel but sweetened up by 6V6’s. Sweet sustain and loads of crunch can be dialed up easily. Channel 2 is a Rhythm and Blues channel, with a the best of classic 60’s American tone. Additional eq options include a bright switch and a selectable midrange notch that can give you blackface or tweed type tones but bigger.
