I played a Rivera era Fender Twin amp that really impressed me this past weekend. If was a multi band benefit show with all equipment provided. I had never used an amp like this at a show. I didn't bring any pedals at all. One cord straight in. So I set the tone a bit gainy and used my vol knob. I was very impressed with the headroom and overall clarity. It was loud and dirty, but the notes cut right through. Maybe the wrong place to bring this up, but I'm thinking about an amp like this for the simpler, classic rock/blues type gigs. All I've been reading about is boutique amps and it just leaves me confused. Are the Fender/Rivera amps of good build quality? Reliable? How much gain or type of gain can be gotten from them? Or what similar type boutique style amp would have 2 channels, footswitch and about 50w?
