Rivera Guitar Amps UK – US Boutique Guitar Amplifier Maker

Rivera Boutique Guitar Amplifier, LA, USA.

Rivera guitar amps are available in Europe from a limited number of sources. There are regular second hand versions of the Rivera amps becoming available on auction sites however you can never guarantee to get something that has not already been tinkered with. To source and buy a new Rivera Amp in the UK seems to be difficult. This is due to Rivera Guitar Amplifiers being designed and manufactured in California, US. However, we have found a European supplier who can delivery Rivera Amp models to your UK address. The link to buy Rivera Amps for UK delivery is shown below.

If you are one of the UK based people who have managed to source one of the new rivera amps then you are in good company. Rivera amps UK are used by a number of famous guitar players who seek that classic tube guitar amp tone with something extra.

The Rivera Amps guitar amplifier company was founded by Paul Rivera in August 1976 in Southern California. Before  manufacturing amplifiers Paul Rivera ran his own guitar amplifier repair and modification shop, focusing on tube guitar amplifiers that were made by mainstream brands. Rivera, like other boutique guitar amplifier builders, like Soldano guitar amplifiers, began building models based on Fender Tube Amps to try to capture a piece of the market for hot-rodded multi-channel amplifiers that was dominated at the time by Mesa Boogie Amps.

As these are boutique US MADE guitar amplifiers you will need to import the product from the US supplier as shown below. Quality costs money.
