Used Rivera Suprema 55 vs (JMP-1+Marshall 9100)?
What would you choose, if you already had a cabinet 2x12

the Rivera used is $1300
JMP-1+9100+TSL C212 is $1300 as well.


id go wiht the marshall simply because i have never herd of rivera. But when your talking that kinda money you need to go try them out for yourself really.

Marshall all the way,

Rivera really are very good, but a bit to pricey.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Appart from being on UG or wanking, thats what i mostly do
Rivera's are excellent and definately worth a look.

Not only is it a quality amp, but it's an entirely different sound (overdrive and EQ wise) to Marshalls.
I would probably try the rivera as i have never played that model however if it was a knucklehead hands dopwn rivera wins. i say you should go try them both out and see what you prefer

Rivera amps kick a whole lot of ass. I came damn close to buying one, but went for the El Diablo instead...

But in this case, if I already had a 2 x 12 cab, I think I would take the JMP-1 / 9100. the versatility in that setup just puts it ahead of the Rivera IMO. Either option is a good deal though.

ya the JMP-1 probably is a tad bit more versatole but you also will need to purchase a rach case to house the power and pre amp plus a midi controller control it. so it may be cheaper to get the rivera
