Rivera Sedona Lite Acoustic-electric Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Great tube sound live or in the studio
  • Feedback-fighting equalizer and 6-spring reverb onboard
  • The perfect amplifier for your Taylor Expression System
Great tube sound live or in the studio

The Sedona Lite gives both your acoustic and your electric guitar amazing tube tone. In fact, it sounds so good, you'll want to use it in the studio as well as onstage. That's why Rivera gave the Sedona Lite a built-in rear-panel tube direct box output. This balanced direct output features a CineMag transformer and an all-tube signal path, letting you record or run direct to the house system, without sacrificing your tone.

Feedback-fighting equalizer and 6-spring reverb onboard

Feedback is always an issue when you plug in an acoustic guitar onstage. That's why Rivera gave the Sedona Lite a powerful anti-feedback equalizer that's tough on drone and squeal, but light on your tone. And when it comes to natural-sounding reverb, nothing beats the Sedona Lite's long-pan, 6-spring Accutronics reverb.

The perfect amplifier for your Taylor Expression System

Play a Taylor T5 or other model that's equipped with a Taylor Expression System onboard? Rivera built this Sedona Lite with your guitar in mind! Thanks to the Sedona Lite's special ES-ready input, your Taylor guitar will sound fatter and warmer than ever before.

  • The perfect all-tube combo amplifier for both your electric and acoustic guitars

My New Favorite Amp!

This review has to start with the outstanding service I've received from my Sales Engineer Robert and the rest of the Sweetwater team. I had previously purchased a different Amp (name purposely withheld) from Sweetwater about 8 months ago. It developed problems with the tone circuits and Sweetwater sent the amp back to the factory twice where they were unable to find the problem. Needless to say, I no longer wanted the amp and preferred to purchase another brand. I expected that I would get a credit for a portion of my original purchase price. I was in error. Robert and the Sweetwater team credited my full purchase price. WOW, how's that for great customer service. Enough of that, after all this is a review my new Rivera Sedona Lite 55 watt. What I was originally looking for was a great pedal amp. This amp deliveres that better than any other amp I own. What's great about this amp is that no matter how loud I play it doesn't add any gain of it's own, so my effects stay unaffected by the amp. The 2nd benefit I get with this amp is channel #1 which is primarily for acoustic guitars. Turning on the tweeeter and having 55 watts of headroom makes them sparkle. Additionally, this amp is equipped with a balanced input. Before I started using this feature I didn't feel that it was really important. Boy was I wrong. I own a Taylor T5z. Prior to this amp I always felt that this guitar fell short on it's dynamic range. Playing it through this amp gave it a totally new voice where the guitar just came alive. Bottom line is that if you're looking for an amp where your pedals do most of the tone shaping or your looking for one of the best acoustic amps around, you need to seriously consider this amp.

A Great All Around Amp!

After an hour or so of learning the features, controls and adjustments possible, I really appreciate the thought that went into the design and construction of the Rivera Sedona Lite 55. Starting with Taylor K24 and K66 guitars, I found the great bass I can never get enough of, along with the shimmering treble of the 12strings right up front and center. This was an impressive improvement over the Fender Acoustic Pro 200 ( I liked and was happy with). The direct out and effects loop are really convenient and the Taylor guitar input produces a noticeable improvement in tone quality. As a bonus, I have found my Telecaster works well with the Sedona Lite though a small increase on the volume adjustment knob is needed to maintain volume with the Taylors. Thanks Sweetwater!
