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.
