Rivera Hundred Duo Twelve


I quickly tried out a Rivera R100-212 at a guitar store, I liked it, but it seemed to be a very loud mutha... Anyway, I'm considering letting my Marshall 1/4 stack go and getting the combo instead.
Has anyone owned or have any experinence with the Hundred Duo Twelve?

Any input will be appreciated. Thanks.


I took the amp home. My Marshall stayed in the shop.
The Rivera kicks butt. For the first time in my life, I feel I have an amp that does all that an amp needs to do. From fendery clean to totally wailing hi-gain distortion, this nasty mutha has it all.
I've had Marshalls, Mesas, a Peavey, a Fender etc. but this Rivera one is the overall best one of them all.

Plus, it's loud but sounds nice at low volumes, too. And it's very portable for a 2x12 combo. Go check one out.

If you get some sort of power attenuator like a Marshall SE100, it will sound better. I know it has different power switches, but Riveras are generally under rated meaning that they are will be louder than most amps. I had an R30 and it was way too loud. My Duarte has a lot of power, but even on the lowest power setting, which is Triode and then the lowest (I forget the wattage) it is extremely loud. I use the SE100 and it sounds even better at whisper quiet volume if necessary.
