    I'm thinking of going Rivera after years of using Marshall & Mesa. What's the difference between the Knucklehead 55 Reverb and the Fandango. I need great cleans & a solid drive channel. Nothing too high gain, more Marshall-type if anything. Also, since I'm considering all options, including Budda (although I hear they're too freakin' loud), how's the reliability and noise factor?
    thanks

    I can't answer your question, but I have a Chubster 40 for sale. Been here less than a month so I can't post it but I do have over 200 positive ebay feedbacks (99.5%). PM me if interested.

    Thanks but I need a head instead of a combo.

    That's a great clip. It's hard to find good ones, even on their website. I was just wondering if there's any difference in the drive channels between the two. Rivera's seen like great amps.

    R55 or KHR 55?

    I haven't heard of features that the Fandango has that are missing from the KHR 55, but would be interested if there are some.

    No big...the model was misidentified in the OP.

    By the way, I posted my settings on the other thread.
