Overview

Rivera Amplifiers are legendary not only for some of the best tone on the planet, but also for rugged construction and long life. The Clubster puts 45W of EL-34 power through a 12" Celestion Seventy/80 speaker. The amp uses two 12AX7 preamp tubes - reliable and easily accessible for service. Built with a full plywood cabinet, welded zinc-plated steel chassis, audiophile-quality components, and military-grade construction. Comes with a footswitchable Accutronics 3-spring mechanical reverb and a 2-function footswitch.

Around back, an effects patch loop is provided along with an external speaker jack and a line output for recording or P.A. feeds. The power cord is detachable and easy to replace.

Clubsters have two completely independent preamp channels, each with its own EQ. section. Channel 1 is a high-gain channel with 3-band EQ and a switchable gain boost, and Channel 2 is a clean channel with 2-band EQ and enough gain and headroom to overdrive the power amp when needed—or keep it sparkly clean.

Dialing up clean and distortion tones has never been easier. From Mississippi Delta Blues to Birmingham Steel Rock to Nashville Clean, your tone is home with the Clubster amp.

The Clubster is a professional amp suitable for serious working musicians, yet it is quite affordable. Casuals like a wedding or party could not be any easier, due to the compact size, low weight, and abundance of fine tone.

For recording, Clubsters do the job well. Utilizing good miking technique in recording situations, this small package of excellent tone will lay down great sounding tracks. You can also use the Clubster to power an external Rivera 412 cabinet, allowing you to record stack sounds easily.

solid

By 

from Florida

I've owned this amp for 2 years now and I love it. The reverb is so so and the amp distortion is not so hot so I have resorted to using pedals for the reverb and the distortion. But the amp itself is extremely solid and extremely versatile. It's a rock solid foundation to build the rest of your sound on. Other amps I've sold off within a year's time. The Clubster I am pretty sure I will have 10 years from now.
