Rivera Pubster 25w 1×10″ tube / valve amp combo Made in USA USED
Rivera Pubster 25 valve amp combo
It’s not in bad condition. There’s a few marks and scuffs on the top of the amp.
There’s a few light scuffs and scratches all over.
Some rusting around the screws that hold the handle on and corners on.
The front panel is relatively clean but does show signs of use in terms of minor scuffs and scratches.
The amp comes with a footswitch
This amp has been tested and is in good working order.
Although on an amp of this age you must expect to hear some crackle / scratchy pot noise from time to time. I say this just to manage your expectations, because when I tested it the amp was sounding just fine and I didn’t hear any unexpected noises.
I’m afraid I don’t know when the valves were last changed or the age of them.
You know what valves are like – 30 year old ones can last another 10 years or more and 6 month old ones may last another day. Valves are consummable items, expect them to last 24 hours and every day is a bonus !
Built small and smart, the Rivera Pubster belts out a rich, all-tube tone that’s anything but compact. With 25-watts and a 10″ speaker, the Pubster offers a single channel with foot switchable boost with its own master control. Also features a genuine Accutronics® 3-spring reverb, a specially voiced speaker, and high-end features such as an effects loop and line output.
A slant-back front on the rock-solid cabinet makes it easy for guitarists to hear the Pubster without placing it on a chair or riser, simplifying setup and utilizing the natural bass-enhancing effect that comes from having the amp sitting directly on the floor. The Pubster uses an open-back design in conjunction with its special-design Rivera speaker to enhance its impressive range of classic, beefy tones.
Ruggedly constructed using an oversized transformer, a welded steel chassis, nickel-plated steel corners, and military-grade components, the Pubster easily withstands the rigors of road and studio. Construction details include a 5/8″-thick, lumber-core plywood enclosure covered with roadworthy black Tolex, and rubber feet and a steel-reinforced vinyl strap handle for extra convenience and portability.
