I thought that I bought a new guitar, too.

Dimitris, Greece, 18.08.2016
I use this amp for home recording and playing.
I was looking for a long time for an amp with clean and sweet sound, and I found it in Rivera Venus Deux.
It that price it is a bargain: made in USA, handwired, better than its celebrated rivals, very solid construction, luxurius & beautiful, and most of all, with a sound that can be described with a variety of adjectives: clear, sweet, smooth, warm, full, rich, mellow, snappy, etc.
In cons, a variety of interesting real - sound tonal variations by 8 ways of adjustments (treble, middle, bass, focus, presence, plus 3 pull options ) plus a reverb.
The amp transformed my guitar (a custom partcaster with 6 sounds) revealing new sound paths, so I thought that I bought a new guitar too.
I think that it will be my companion for years (handwire).
Recomended.

The Clean Amp

19.02.2017
For me at least.
Paul Rivera is absolutely no unknown amp builder. If you are looking for authentic Fender sound, then you are right with the boss designer of Fender from the 80's.
The Amp can Bassman and TwinReverb Voicing and with the 6v6 power amp the whole with a velvety, smoky, bluesy note. (See Princeton or Deluxe Reverb)
The Focus Knob is a nice feature with which you can adjust the amp from loose to relatively tight. Relatively tight does not mean closed back, but that does not work with the physics.
Sound control is so in abundance, there is hardly a clean sound one can not adjust here. This is due to the 3 pushpull potentiometers and the fine adjustable 3 band Eq.
The speaker sounds bold and transparent, unfortunately there is no more detailed information about the CustomSpeaker from Eminence. Only that it was developed specifically for this amp.
The cabinet is quite compact, but with a depth of 30 cm it is not so easy to carry. Here we come immediately to a false statement of Thomann. The amplifier weighs 22 kg (48.5 lb) which is for me personally at the upper limit. On the other hand you need for large sound eg a large Output Transformer and then it just becomes somewhat heavier.
All in all an indestructible top temp.
