Posted Jan 19, 2012 at 7:00pm

Anaheim, CA (January 20, 2012) – Ampeg today announces the Heritage R-12R Reverberocket tube guitar combo. Hand-wired and assembled in the U.S.A. using the most premium components available, the Heritage R-12R offers the authentic tube-driven reverb and smooth tremolo that made the original one of the most revered guitar combos ever.

The Ampeg Heritage R-12R Reverberocket is a stunning recreation of the world’s first guitar amp with reverb. High-grade tubes include signature 6SL7/6SN7 octal preamp tubes, a 5AR4 rectifier and 6L6 power tubes, delivering a selectable 15 or 30 watts to the premium Celestion Alnico Gold speaker, chosen only after intensive listening tests to ensure the authentic vintage tone. Completing the Heritage look, the chrome-plated chassis, Black Diamond tolex and meticulous construction are as high-quality and beautiful as the signature tone of this classic guitar amplifier.

Available in June 2012, the Ampeg Heritage R-12R Reverberocket build is limited to 100 units.
