Time has come to change up the amps here, so the Rivera is going up for sale.
I will offer it on here and SS.org for (1) week first before posting on other sites.
The TBR-2SL is a 320W (160W per side), all-tube, 2-channel amp.
EIGHT 6550's for the power amp, and SEVEN 12ax7's for the pre.
The amp has more headroom than Shaq's SUV.
It can get VERY loud, but only if you want it to.
There are a ton of other features on the amp as well. I suggest checking out the manual for more info: Rivera TBR Series Owner's Manual
The amp is in very good condition considering it's age.
Some of the labeling on the rear panel had worn away via the previous owner, and a couple of the switch faces on the rear have been cracked:
(T/P switch on A side; MIDI jack for F/S; impedance selector on B side).
F/S jack is also missing one mounting screw.
It's been kept in the rack case since I've owned it.
- The front handles and RIVERA logo have been 'faced' with a milling machine:
- All tubes were re-done about 4 years ago, with biasing assistance courtesy of Paul Rivera Sr.
- The velcro strip (soft loop side) on the back corner was used to hold a 4-outlet power strip:
- The SKB 8-space rack has some minor wear on it (duct tape residue), but no cracks and all latches work perfectly:
- The amp comes with FS-1 footswitch, and an 8' power cord:
The FS-1 has a new cable, but does not work properly (wiring issue in the F/S, I believe).
Not shown in the pictures are the 12ax7 tube covers that are included.
Weight is about 90 lbs.
No. I'm not kidding.
Shipping will not only be difficult but also expensive. Please consider that before purchasing.

FWIW, this thing sounded awesome at the Hootnanny.
What are you replacing it with, Kevan?
