Expanding the Fandango™ line, the Fandango 212 100-watt features the big, robust voice of two Celestion G12T-75s in a gorgeous and deep cabinet, and more than 100 watts. A fabulous five 12AX7 preamp section with a lead channel like the Knucklehead Reverb, coupled with a powerhouse of EL-34 Watts and Celestion speakers, housed in a lustful cabinet makes "Twin Killer" take on a new meaning. This amp is capable of handling practically any size gig.
Like almost all Rivera amps (except for TBR and M/S Series) the Preamp Tubes are powered by a DC Filament power supply, lowering all AC filament caused hum to disappear. This costly feature helps to ensure that in the case of need to service and change the 12AX7 tubes, a host of different tube manufacturer's devices may be used without the fear of increased hum (many 12AX7s have filament designs that cause hum in AC filament powered tube guitar amps, like most Fender, Marshall, and Mesa Boogie models).
Our 100+ watt Output Stage (they actually measure often in excess of 110 watts) features four matched EL-34 with a massive Output Transformer from the Knucklehead Reverb. An impedance selector located on the rear panel for 4, 8, or 16 ohm loads allows correct matching with any internal and external combination of speaker loads. Also, bottom end response is greatly enhanced by this massive piece of iron and copper audiophile quality Output Transformer. A Line output jack is also provided for sending line level signals to PA Mixers, Recording devices, or to slave to another power amp.
Another great Rivera feature is the Standby-Switch built into the speaker Jack #1. This means that in the instance of inadvertently operating the amp without a load plugged into the speaker jack, you will not fear damaging the Output Transformer and Tubes/Tube sockets. This also allows easy idle current measurement by a qualified technician when bias adjustment is necessary (all Rivera amps have an internal bias potentiometer provided).
Recalling the days of Roy Rodgers and his Palomino Horse "Trigger", our new Fandango ™ 212 series comes in a color scheme that Trigger would be proud of. Leather grained and supple beige Tolex covers the outside of the cabinet shell, and a palomino cream Tolex¨ accents the front grille. The matching grill cloth is a tri-tone brown and ox-blood color. Front "Plexi" panel and matching knobs are in a black and white color combination.
