Overview

This Venus 3 Top amplifier head is a compact and lightweight master of tone. The Venus 3 Top is easy to use, with the simplicity of a single channel, and yet ever so versatile with 3-band equalization controls that have the trademark Rivera Notch switch to choose between vintage tweed and vintage Blackface tones. With 2 - 12AX7 tubes, it's easy to dial in great headroom for clean playing, and with the push-pull gain boost feature the available gain and distortion will allow sustain for days. Every nuance of your note will be enveloped in a rich harmonic sweetness that the 15W 2x6V6GT Class-A power amp section delivers. Although the Venus 3 is compact, it is huge on sound and you will be amazed at how much clean bottom-end warmth can be found regardless of speaker size. Add spaciousness and long lush decay to your instrument with the built-in Accutronics 3 spring reverb. A Presence control adds the final touch of high-end brilliance. Power and Standby switches and the pilot light are conveniently located on the front panel.

The Rivera Vintage-Modern switch on the rear panel allows the power to be cut down to 7W while enhancing the even-order harmonics, making it indispensable for low-volume recording and practice. A detachable power cable and AC mains fuse are easily accessible. Two speaker jacks allow connection to the internal and external speakers. A Line Out jack gives you the option of slaving another amp or recording directly from the power amp signal that is at line level. Effects patching is rapid with Preamp Out and Power Amp Input jacks provided as well.

Like all Rivera amplifiers, the Venus 3 head is made in the USA featuring USA-made oversized transformers and military-grade components.
