Amazing amp

First thing I noticed is how heavy this amp is for a smaller sized head (compared to other larger heads). That's obviously a good sign, military grade components mean this amp could survive a nuclear blast. It's a VERY solid piece of hardware and meticulously (hand) built here in Burbank, CA. Being that this is a high gain, the clean channel is by far the best I've heard in a high gain amp. Nothing comes close... PERIOD. Has a very Fender like quality. One thing that I find interesting, is the clean channel is a non master volume. It can get from chimey to gritty when you start cracking the gain. Personally I don't set the gain past 3 on the dirty channel. Its a very high gain amp and 3 has plenty of crunch for me. One major thing that really got me loving his head is the note articulation and separation. Nothing gets drowned or muddy. id say it has a jcm800 or a soldano I slo100 feel (when the gain is around 3/4). Once you go past those numbers your entering bogner uberschall, diezel vh4 (ch4) territory. It's not a super versatile amp, but that doesn't mean you can't get a lot of sounds out of it. I still haven't owned it long enough to go into full detail on everything but that's what my impressions are so far. I'm very impressed with Rivera so far. I'd also like to note, sweetwater did an amazing job packing and shipping the amp.
