I visited a local music store the other day to pick up a cable and my friend/band leader of JonesWorld Todd "Zilla" Austin showed off the latest amp from Rivera. I'm a fan of Paul's amps. The workmanship is outstanding and the sound is unbelievable. The new Venus V amp was no exception. The clarity was wonderful and the gain was admirable. Rolling the guitar's volume at a pretty high gain setting cleaned up tremendously. The amp is dead sexy and can be found in black or my personal favorite white! Check it out!
