The manufacturer describes this amp as a “low wattage tone monster”. The Rivera Venus 3 is certainly a classic American style valve amp. It uses 2 x 6V6s and 2 x ECC83s through a 12″ Celestion G12 Heritage 30 speaker. It also features Accutronics 3-spring reverb and a useful half-power vintage mode.
It’s perfect for gigging due to its foot-switchable boost which you can dial up or down. It also features a mid switch to choose between a more tweed or more blackface.
A power soak feature allows you to flip between the full 15 watts down to just seven watts. This means you keep the tone and dynamics you like but at a significantly lower volume.
The Rivera Venus 3 features a line-level output from the power amp section. This allows you to capture the most important parts of its tone without ever touching a microphone. The Venus 3’s I/O includes both a preamp output and a power amp input. Due to this you can patch in effects, tap off the preamp, or slave another amp altogether.
So, if you’re looking for great sounding valves for Rivera amplifier you’ve come to the right place.
