Four EVM12Ls per cabinet, and each cab coming in a near-indestructible touring flight case, these have seen service with some of the biggest names in the Rock business. Unburstable and unbreakable, they have some of the tightest bottom end of any 4x12 ever heard. Impossible to confuse sonically with Marshall-style 4x12s, which come with some extra generosity in the bass department, these need to be driven hard by a powerful and bass-endowed beast of an amp. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
Huge and huge-sounding, this is the largest member of the Recto family. With switching for everything you could imagine (and a few you can’t) this is one of the most versatile amps ever made. Combining EL34 and 6L6 in a variety of ways, and selectable for each channel, you can get from small-amp clean to stadium-level heavy, and everything in between. If you need to get close to some earlier Mark Series tones, as well as covering traditional Recto territory, it’s the one to go for. It comes with its original floor unit, and is in very good condition. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
This is a rare one a working Pearce solid-state amp. One of the few solid state amps that can get a good edge of breakup tone; as used by Allan Holdsworth, John Abercrombie, Andy Summers, David Torn and Ronnie Montrose. It has its original footswitch, and comes in a protective JHS rack bag. It includes: - Preamp with two separate channels, that can also be combined - Presence control - Midrange EQ from 200-6KHz Four DIP-switches on front panel to determine various preamp gain/EQ options. Limiter assignable to Channel 2 only Alesis digital reverb for Channel 1 and 2, completely independent Stereo output, 100W per side into 4 ohms Presence control Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
Released in 1990, this was Mesa’s first three-channel amp, with independent controls for each channel, except bass and mid, which are shared by Rhythm 1 (clean) and Rhythm 2 (crunch). There were two versions of this amp. Mark IVs built from the start of production until about September 1993 are referred to as version A; amplifiers made from late 1993 until the end of production in 2008 are known as version B. Early Bs have an attached power cord, like the A version. Some differences: version A has no footswitch for reverb or stereo effects loop, and the lead channel is somewhat similar to the Mark IIC+‘s. Version B has switchable reverb, a single switchable stereo effects loop, and an output to drive another power amp. Its voicings are altered slightly. Both versions are highly regarded; production of the Mark IV ended in 2008. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
Pearce GR2 Amp Mesa Bookie MkIV combo
Another powerful 85W Fender head from 1966, equipped with a quartet of the best 6L6GC valves you can find. Checked and serviced some eight weeks ago, it’s in great working order. AB763 circuit. Shipped as an export model with selectable voltage, the original transformer has now been hard-wired for 240V operation. The Showman is designed for an 8 ohm speaker load. From the same owner/producer as the blonde ’64 Showman (also available), it has been recorded and has toured extensively. It has also been kept fully serviced since it was bought by the last owner some thirty years ago. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
Date stamped ND, this is a big, powerful 85W blonde Fender head from 1964, equipped with some of the best 6L6GC valves you can find anywhere. It has the AA763 circuit Checked and serviced this month, it’s in great working order. This one has toured with some big names over the years. Shipped originally to the UK by Fender, the export transformer has now been hard-wired for 240V operation. As it's a (Single) Showman, it is designed for an 8 ohm speaker load. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com

Music Man amps of this period have a solid-state pre-amp and a tube power amp. They’re unusual in that they run the power tubes at quite high voltage (~700 VDC) but with only around 350 V on the screens. This requires a more complex power supply, but it does mean that they output quite serious wattage (75W) from a single pair of tubes that would typically produce 40-50W on an all-tube design. This sort of amp excels at clean tones to very slight breakup. The lead is more fuzz than distortion, unless you have a very light hand, but has very much its own character and usefulness in the right context. The 75 Head is one of the rarer configurations, and makes a great clean platform for pedal-based rigs. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
Music Man 75 head
Shipped by Mesa with the UK export transformer, it is still in very good condition, with a hardwood shell and its original EVM12L speaker. A highly versatile piece of gear, it was introduced in the early 90’s, often being used in conjunction with the Mesa Boogie Mark IV to create a stereo setup. You can run the Simul in a variety of ways: 1. as a straight clean amp it makes a good base tone for pedals or you can use the amp’s own boost. 2. To turn your Mono Rig into a Stereo Rig. 3. as a Powered Speaker, running a Preamp into it. It has a great loop and, of course, the famous Mesa Boogie Graphic EQ. Driven by four 6L6 tubes, there is a Class A / Simul Class switch on the back. It also has a tweed lower power switch, foot-switchable EQ settings, and a Boost Function that is also foot-switchable. These are quite rare, and also quite substantial, weighing in at about 65 lbs. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
Hiwatt amps have been used by bands from The Who and Led Zeppelin to Arctic Monkeys. The original Hylight models were built to the very highest standards, and are becoming increasingly collectable in original condition. The DR112 PA head, which works well as a substitute for the DR103 Guitar head, is loud, punchy and - at some considerable volume - rich with harmonics. Front it with the preamp of your choice, and/or a variety of pedals, and run your FX into separately EQ-able channels. There are few better examples of clean and lush tone, and as a pedal platform they are unsurpassed. Speccy stuff: Output: 100 watts Impedance: 4, 8 or 16 ohms Selectable Voltage - 105v 115v 225v 245v Output Valves: 4x Mullard EL34s Transformers: original Partridge P/T and O/T

Super clean example of one of Two-Rock’s smallest 6L6 amps. The company's then- general manager Mac Skinner said about this amp: " The Gain Master was designed to be a lower wattage, dual-channel, classic amp design, modelled after our limited edition TS-1.” It doesn’t have the usual Two-Rock reverb, but does have a great loop to use your reverb/time domain FX with. It also does a thicker saturated gain than most of Two-Rocks are known for, in a generally similar vein to the long-lost K&M LTD amp from their pre-PGB days. This is designated a EU 230V model: this means it is designed to run on any EU voltage, which naturally also includes the UK’s 235-240V. Call Eliot on 07393 894443 or email to guitaravenueltd@gmail.com
MkIII Black Dot DRGX 100W Simul-Class Combo. A very clean example of one of the earliest versions of the MkIII family, built around September ‘85. Still in the general ballpark for high-gain IIC+ tones, but also does very useable clean/low-gain, though it’s mentioned a lot less often.  Comes with the full option-list of EVM12L speaker, GEQ, reverb and switchable Simul/Class A. Two-Rock Gain Master 35W Head front Mesa Boogie MkIII Black Dot Combo
