Rickenbacker TR 25 Guitar Amp.

Anyone out there, other than Graham, have a TR 25? I wbought one two years ago on Graham's recommendation. Fantastic 25-watt amp. Solid sate, and sounds as warm as a tube amp. Nice vibrato and reverb.

Does anyone have one of these, and if so, do you have the original footswitch? I'm using a Fender Twin footswitch for mine.

Interesting. I'd love to hear what its 12" can do. I have 4 TR7's and love 'em (obviously, if I have four). One of them is a "Gem" though, not a Rick, but aside from the name is exactly the same as far as I can tell. I've been running a new pedalboard I wired up with 3 channels - via a Morley ABC, 1 channel is "guitar" through regular guitar pedals, 2 is "keyboard" which runs through things like a rotary speaker emulator, filter modeler, and synth sounds, and 3 is an octave pedal to a bass amp. The "keyboard" channel runs stereo to a pair of TR7's! :)

Interesting!

The only things I have to record video are my laptop and my IPhone; I doubt either is ideal for a sound sample. The TR25 is an excelent 25-watt amp; as warm to my ear as a tube amp. It's my main small rehearsal amp. I used it for practices when I was in OCBI with Joey Vasco and Mark Pytko.

I have one. Nice and portable. The only thing holding them back is anti-solid-state snobbery, I think.

I own one too.

I used it in a stage play last year, with my 1977 JG 620. It nails the classic RIC tone.

I acquired one last weekend.

I've not tried it out yet; it was being used for demos on a seller's stand at a guitar show.
