Anyone here know anything about Risson ETA-100 amps?

Bob modded an old Fender Bassman of mine back in the 80's, and it just screamed when he was done with it. I really liked his stuff. He made really nice cabs, too, if I recall correctly.

Actually, I think those are LTA's in the Slash photo. I own 2 ETA-100's and they are LOUD and HEAVY (as in weight). They are actually rated more like 120 watts. Bob is a great guy and services them for me right here in SoCal. Will post some pics if I can figure out how...

I've got an ETA-100, dual 6550 power tubes, 60 watts clean...easily over 100 when dimed...pretty ripping solo tone, think hot-rodded Marshall, plus a defeatable master volume setup.

If anyone is into a 2-12" ETA-100 combo let me know and I will get you in contact with the owner..

Aren't those the amps Lita Ford used back in the day?

I'm not familiar with the ETA-100, but I do own one of Bob's newer Risson Marvell heads. He's a great guy and I'm sure if you have any questions about any of his amps he'd be more then happy to answer your questions.

He's making and selling the Marvell again, using nos parts, not a bad deal if they sound good. Good transformers etc should sound great.

I recall seeing Al Perkins play pedal steel through one at the Gram Parsons benefit.....sounded pretty darn good to me !
