Rivera pioneered the concept of a tube acoustic guitar amp, collaborating with the now-legendary Doyle Dykes to create the Sedona. Now we have brought this concept to a lighter, more compact amp: Introducing the Sedona Lite.
Doyle asked us for years to make a compact amp that would meet the weight requirements of the airlines and yet still deliver the tone that Rivera Sedona amps are famous for. It wasn't an easy task, and we knew we couldn't compromise on the tone or the quality.
Because Rivera Amplification is totally dedicated to the needs of musicians, the Sedona Lite is the result of years of consulting the leading acoustic guitar players as well as the top acoustic guitar makers for their input and consensus.
The Sedona Lite delivers 55 watts of dynamic EL-34 tube power, complemented by a full-range speaker system with a 12" neodymium rare-earth woofer and a special high-power, liquid-cooled dome tweeter.
Two independent channels of warm, glorious vacuum tube tone enhance and wrap every note you play in an envelope of light. Each channel has 3-band equalization, along with several exclusive tone-enhancing features, including a Notch switch that allows you to change the characteristics of the vital midrange frequencies, and a Bright switch to accentuate the harmonics.
Channel 1 features a special ultra-low-noise input that allows you to accept signals from balanced or unbalanced instruments or a microphone.
Instruments like the Taylor ES series as well as the new Martin guitars equipped with balanced outputs will be at their optimum when used in Channel 1 with the balanced input. Even if your guitar is an inexpensive model, using it with the Sedona Lite, will provide your sound with the best of tonal ingredients.
Channel 2 features a harmonically active unbalanced input to amplify either a passive or active instrument, including electric guitars.
Instruments with multiple outputs, such as the Fishman system that utilizes a microphone as well as a piezo transducer, can utilize both channels simultaneously to balance the level and tone between the two instrument signal sources.
For lounge and small-venue performers wanting to keep it simple, the Sedona Lite can act as a small P.A. system as well as an instrument amplifier. Just plug your microphone into Channel 1 and your instrument into Channel 2, and, voila, you have the warmth of tubes for your voice as well as your instrument.
In the age of digital effects, we are proud to provide the legendary, costly, analog Accutronics mechanical reverb as a standard feature. With its special deep, lush sonic character, it enhances your tones with a sweet and natural swell and decay.
With built-in parametric anti-feedback controls on the front panel, you can easily eliminate irritating low-frequency droning sounds as well as enhance the overall tone of your instruments.
Adding presence and shimmer to your instruments and voice is simple with the Presence control, conveniently located on the front panel.
Patching your accompanying signal processors was never easier with a full serial effects loop that features separate level controls for the send and return. (Paul Rivera invented this concept almost 25 years ago with his previous work designing amps for Fender and Yamaha.)
Recording your Sedona Lite or providing a live feed to a house P.A. system is a snap with the separate direct output with its own level control.
An extra rear-panel speaker jack is provided, so adding an external Sedona extension enclosure for those larger gigs takes only seconds.
