Product Description

The Ampeg Heritage R-12R Reverberocket Guitar Combo Amplifier is a stunning recreation of the world’s first guitar amp with reverb. Hand-wired and assembled in the U.S.A., the incredible Ampeg R-12R Reverberocket reissue offers the authentic tube-driven reverb and smooth, sweet tremolo that made the original one of the most revered guitar combos ever.

High-grade tubes, including the signature octal preamp tubes, deliver a selectable 15 or 30 watts to the premium Celestion Alnico Gold speaker, chosen only after intensive listening tests by Ampeg to ensure the authentic vintage tone. Completing the Heritage of the R-12R Reverberocket look, the chrome-plated chassis, Black Diamond tolex and meticulous construction are as high-quality and beautiful as the signature tone of this classic guitar amplifier.

Playability and Feel
A Vampire's Dream
Your general opinion of this product.
A finer amp was never made!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
This is what amplifiers are supposed to look and sound like.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It is an amp! It doesn't have a "neck"!
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I spent a few hours looking, but cannot find pickups on this amp. Because of this, I am unable to answer this confusing question.
How was the action out of the box?
I tried to play it like a guitar, and the action seemed very slow. Extremely difficult to play like a guitar. I think it is much better as an amplifier for a guitar!
How did the stain or paint job look?
There was no paint on this amp. Is this a trick question? Wait ! There may be paint or stain, but it must be under the diamond covering! This is an insult to my intelligence! But nevermind.
How has it stood up over time?
I have had this amp for 10 minutes. It has stayed perfect.
