Rivera Knucklehead KR 55 212
Amp valvolare, 55W con riverbero. Possibilità di utilizzare il loop effetti continuamente per fungere da Powerbrake (ma senza perdere il guadagno per esso) e che funziona bene per Supo grano a basso volume.


Questo è dove si blocca ... Le impostazioni sono estremamente difficili da ottenere. Niente a che fare con un Mesa / Boogie, qui diventa una vera e propria presa di testa. Soprattutto per la distorsione. Le manopole sono precise e questo è certamente ciò che gli viene chiesto. Ma qui, interagiscono e talvolta incompréhesible. Sono riuscito ad ottenere un set per il mio ESP SV (EMG81 - attivo), ma mai per le mie ESP MIII (passività ToneZone/YJM/X2N DiMarzio). Ho messo lo stesso, perché in 4 materia di pulirlo un po 'più facile. Inoltre, l'uso di push-pull è molto semplice e molto efficace.


I say right away: this is an amp for Blues / Rock or Hard Rock. N'immaginez not play Metal with fat! Without comparison, it would be almost satisfactory, but for the price, he can not hold a candle to a Mesa / Boogie Rectifier or a Peavey 6505 +. I play everything (Funk, Floyd, Blues, Classic), but mostly Metal (In Flames, Angra, Symphony X, Children of Bodom, Atreyu). I bought it because the video convinced me. The video does not lie, or rather very little. The distortion has a grain very pleasant and enjoyable but lacks the life of the lamp, the punch found in ENGL, Mesa / Boogie, Peavey, Orange, etc.. and that is expected of an amp € 2600 (I was then a KR55 Tré 112 HP 12 inches shorter).

I put 8 because after all, the clean is great and the push-pull "bright" and "notch" offer a vivid color palette.
The reverb is sweet, especially clean. She has little interest in distortion.


I had it for 4 months and by adding back a compressor, nothing worked (it was even worse). This is a great amp, expensive for what it provides. It has a beautiful clean and a nice distortion but no more. It lacks a bit of fishing in all. However, the possibility of using the loop as powerbrake, without losing grain (véridique!) is very significant, especially in small house. Personally, I would buy it because it does not suit my style, but I think an equal basis to concurence Mesa / Boogie F-30 or Express 5:50.
