    Just got this Richter RS-22 amp yesterday and I can't turn it off! It is a 22 watt 6V6 Narrow Panel 5F6-A circuit in, obviously a 1X12. I have always drooled over the sound of the 5F6-A 4X10 Bassman and when this fell into play and I researched it I was SOLD! Same 4-input, Double Volumes, Tone Stack and Presence circuit as the original circuit. Crafted and hand wired by Gene and Sara Richter in Illinois. They make a 33 watt version as well as other Tweed amps. Incredible build, top notch! Is running a Jensen Jet Series Electric Lightning which I am really liking. Very Fender sounding speaker with alot of headroom and smooth, creamy breakup.

    The amp sounds amazing. Great clarity and sparkle yet thick and creamy as a Tweed should be. I play only Strats and Teles so I haven't even investigated the Bright inputs, but the Volume pots are so interactive. The Presence circuit is the true secret for me. My Telecaster through this amp is a thing to behold. The prices on Richter amps are just jaw-dropping low for the product.

    Very cool amp. The singer in our band use a 5f6 2x10 and it sounds killer. I really like the full tonestack on that one. Great grab and go amp. Congrats!

    Jumping the inputs on this amp is just too cool! Between being able to blend the Normal and Bright inputs, the full Tone Stack and the Presence circuit the sonic possibilities are endless! Leo really nailed it with the 5f circuit amps. Always thought I was primarily a Blackface guy.....but this amp is, as someone said, a "game changer."
