    Hello to all I am a new member, and found the forum when researching my new purchase of an Edwards LTS 130. (which is still stuck in Customs!) I have just got my first real tube amp a Rivera Pubster, but it comes with no manual or anything so I am a bit confused as to what everything does I obviously now how the tone controls and reverb work, but the channel switching is a bit confusing and I have no real idea what the presence control does. I have also bought myself a Fulltone Fulldrive pedal I assume I just stick that in the front of the amp, is that right?

    Sorry if this seems so basic.

    Thanks very much for that. I don't know why Rivera think a Pubster owner doesn't need that info.

    No it came with nothing and I was told all Pubsters come with no manuals. I'll e-mail Rivera, but there's nothing listed on the website.

    Played for about an hour and a half tonight and plugged the Fulltone in for the last 10 miniutes. Your right it sounded awful! I took it straight out again.

    Thanks for all your help. Has anyone got some favourite tone settings?
