LAST ONE AVAILABLE - 12" SPEAKER
The Revival amps pack quite a surprise for a 6 watt amp. Plug in and take a ride through beautiful tweed-like cleans to grimy Delta blues through to howlin’ Texas blues all the way to classic rock, screaming classic metal and beyond. Turn both the tone and volume to 10 on the dial and this little monster is straight-up screaming for vengeance, delivering the classic metal tones of Tipton and Downing at their best. All this and we’re only at 10 on dials that go to 12.
From clean to blues, be-bop, jazz and fusion, and from pop to punk to classic rock, metal and beyond, this featherweight masterpiece delivers stunning tone at volumes that are perfect for the home, studio, jams, rehearsals and small to medium club gigs. Finally a true featherweight combo that can take the place and deliver the tones of the finest stack in town.
Available as an 8” or 12” combo, each with their own strong points but with both shining through the full spectrum from clean to chaos.
THE 8E1 WITH A 12" SPEAKER - BOOM!
At Revival, they finally graduated what was once a bedroom amp to a fully useable professional implement. It's the same Revival model 8E1 white amp in a slightly larger cabinet, adding a much bigger, bolder, and louder driver -- the 12" Celestion Alnico Blue. It has not yet proven possible to convince anyone the 8E1 only puts out 6 watts. For the sake of safety, a helmet is optional but, we are going to recommend you buckle up here. Now, with this sonic tractor, you can effortlessly plow fields all day long and still wanna go play into the night.
The new Revival Model 8E1, born from the little known 1955 Fender made "White" student amplifier. Originally paired with a 6 string steel guitar, the pure class A charmer employed a 5Y3GT rectifier to produce 4 watts of budget fun but, turning up to twelve is where all the goodies reside.
Seeking the perfect recipe, a redesigned power transformer with a 5AR4...Revival's final arrival! A reborn 6-watter acting like a teenager in dyer need of a haircut! Simply put, few guitar players have seen an original version, let alone experienced the proverbial ride this amp can offer, until now.
With Revival's 8E1, all the key catch phrases apply. One being "touch sensitivity," heard so often as to blur its meaning. Well, plug in and the same phrase is immediately defined as you lightly pick along, the wind cries mary and the notes blossom fully into lush harmonic chords. Then, digging in deeper turns your little wing to one of a pterodactyl.
A guitar and cable is all one needs to discover their very own voice. While most modern amps make everyone sound the same, with the 8E1's honest signal you'll easily recognize your instrument. Without a single corner cut and painstaking attention to every detail, give this bedroom sized amp a stellar mid-range focus and warm breakup, creating a perfect live and recording tool. Revival's 8E1, the explosive low wattage amp that can handle any modern pedal and deliver articulate tweed era tones.
Void of hype...a pure signal in a simple package. Not just a necessity, a sonic treat.
