Rivera Amps Jazz Suprema - Archtop Guitar Amplifier Demo Video

The Jazz Suprema Archtop Guitar Amplifier is a brand new, all-tube amp from Rivera Amplification. This unique amp was designed in order to give the 50 watt combo as much head-room as possible. This is very important for archtops with humbuckers and flat-wound strings for example. There aren't many tube amps for jazz and this is unique since it is an all tube design that gives the guitar a lot of color and warmth. There is a notch filter that helps keep low-mid feedback out - a common problem with archtops in tube amps. This split grill look, based off the the Venus series amps from Rivera is a Sound Pure exclusive. You cannot find this amp anywhere else - only at Sound Pure. Call us for more information about this fantastic amplifier.

Manufacturer's Description from Rivera

The Jazz Suprema was completely dialed in for Archtops from the ground up!  Powered by a pair of EL-34's and 3 12ax7's giving 50watts of real tube tone to liven up your

Jazz tone.  We voiced this amp to be able to stay clean and keep all it's headroom even at loud volumes.  Normal electric guitar amps are meant to break-up when pushed for the slight overdrive tone.  Well not this amp!  The Jazz Suprema has the most amount of headroom possible in a 50watt configuration.  Tone controls like Middle "pull for Notch, Treble "Bright" and Focus "Pull Fat" allow you to tailor your jazz tone matching any Archtop guitar and pickup configuration.

The Pull-Notch on the Middle control can cut out feedback on your Archtop.  The Pull "Fat" gives a big bottom boost.  The Treble "Bright" adds a nice shimmer to the top end for those complex chords to cut through the mix.  The Focus control allows you to tighten or loosen your speaker.  This Focus is great if you're in a situation where a room might be to boomy and you need to tighten up the bass.  Also, included is a Foot switchable spring reverb.  For the USA, this amp is exclusive to Sound Pure guitars.  See the videos below.

About Manufacturer

In August of 1976, Paul Rivera founded Rivera R&D in Southern California to provide for musicians and the music industry leading-edge design, development, and manufacturing of products based on the philosophy that you, our client, are the center of our attention. It has been our driving force, from our early work in the 1970s with the who's who of the studio world, to our consulting work for many of the leading amplifier manufacturers, to today's extensive line of professional products that we proudly hand-build in the USA. Rivera is a privately owned company. We do not have to answer to shareholders. We answer only to you. Thankfully, in these times when other makers have taken their production offshore, closed, or allowed their products to deteriorate in quality and tone, we have prospered. This again is because of you, our loyal clients. Our continuing dedication to using only the finest of components in robust designs stands the test of time. Purchasing one of our amplifiers is a long-term investment in quality. You will still be enjoying your Rivera product long after our competitors' products are no longer serviceable and have been discarded. Only Rivera builds an all-tube stereo combo amp, the S120 series. Only Rivera builds an all-tube acoustic guitar amp, the Sedona. Only Rivera had the foresight and innovation to launch our powered subwoofer systems over six years ago. Every product in our line is dedicated to serving players and is designed to meet their needs. Years ago Rivera R&D was famous for complete effects racks and systems for bands and solo artists like Toto, Van Halen, Lee Ritenour, and many others. We are proud to launch our new Routmeister effects switcher, distilled from our years of signal-processing experience. This one product solves the frustration that many players have faced for years in organizing and controlling their stage systems. As we have grown, we have expanded our capacity to manufacture absolute top-quality amplifiers. We are now unleashing our new entry-level Pubster and Clubster series of amplifiers, compact beauties that sport all the quality of our more expensive models, with enough features and stunning tone to please the pickiest of players. For those of you purchasing a Rivera for the first time, welcome to our family. For those of you already in the family, hello again, and we are happy to be of service to you once more.
