Delectable Tube Tone and Responsiveness

From delicious chimey cleans to a range of thick crunch to high-octane shred, the Rivera Venus 6 delivers. Class A guitar amps, typically fitted with EL84 output tubes, are icons of tone, but they can be finicky. This isn't so with the Venus 6. Rivera wisely chose 6V6GT tubes from Electro Harmonix - the rock-solid, state-of-the-art version of the valves that rocked smaller American amps of the '50s, '60s, and '70s - for fat, round tone with smooth, rich distortion and the fabled grittiness you crave. Innovative controls like the tweed/Blackface switch on middle EQ knob and Rivera's focus control give you the tone-sculpting mojo to ace any gig or session. With nothing but the finest components - and the key heat-producing ones mounted on an industrial-grade heatsink - the Venus 6 scores off-the-charts on reliability - a Rivera hallmark. Sweetwater knows what you need in a combo amp: portability, dependability, and versatile, killer sound - and the Rivera Venus 6 gives you all three.

Rivera Venus 6 Combo Guitar Amp at a Glance:
Plug in and wail - this amp loves guitars
Glorious tube tone and responsiveness
Sweeten your sound with classic spring reverb
Plug in and wail - this amp loves guitars
As soon as you snap this amp out of standby, you can feel it - we're talking incredible responsiveness: spongy, creamy feel, bouncy dynamics, a sweet top end, and a seamless transition between spanky cleans and the onset of filth. Dig in and the amp snarls with harmonic-laden vengeance. Lighten your touch and the Venus 6 curls up and purrs. Slash a power chord and the Venus 6 reaches out and smacks you right in the face. Plug in a Strat and it chimes like a Strat. A Tele? You've never heard visceral twang like this. Jack in a Les Paul and it snarls like a Paul. The Venus 6 brings out the best in whatever guitar you play through it. This amp just loves guitars.

Glorious tube tone and responsiveness
Five 12AX7 and a quartet 6V6GT tubes provide the power plant for Rivera Venus 6, but it's the elegant, pure design that takes this amp to boutique land. From blues to country to jazz to rock, you're covered. And best of all, at a club-friendly 35 watts and with a half-power switch, you can push the output to take advantage of the vocal, singing quality of those four satiny 6V6s without bludgeoning your fans in close proximity to the stage. On the other hand, there's enough gut-punching power on tap to keep your drummer in his place. The Venus 6 is also perfect in the studio - put a ribbon mic on this beastie and you'll be giddy with delight.

Sweeten your sound with classic spring reverb
Few people understand spring reverb the way that the engineers at Accutronics do, and it's one of their remarkable reverb units that lets you dial in lush and dimensional guitar tone right inside your Rivera Venus 6 combo amp. This 3-spring reverb features a long and remarkably vibrant decay, and when you kick up the Venus 6's presence control you can easily create bright and brilliant clean tones with the perfect touch of shimmer.
