The story of this Burbank-based brand of amplifiers began in 1976, when Paul Rivera founded Rivera R & D in Southern California. Its goal was to provide musicians and the music industry with handmade products that stood out for their avant-garde designs and their contribution to development.
Since its inception, Rivera has had the client as the center of its attention. For this reason, from the 70’s until now, the brand has focused on offering products for studio professionals and live musicians, as well as consultants for some of the main manufacturers of amplifiers.
Some of its most famous products are the S120 series (stereo tube combo amp), the Sedona (acoustic guitar tube amp) and the new Pubster and Clubster series.
Given their interesting story, it’s no wonder that they’ve worked with artists like Toto, Van Halen or Lee Ritenour.
