This 35-watter is voiced for classic British tones.

Rift Amplification has teamed up with British blues guitarist Aynsley Lister on a signature amp. This 35-watt, all-tube unit features classic British voicing, and comes in three formats: a head, a 1×12” combo and a 2×12” combo. Matching extension cabinets are also available.

The amp’s sound underwent five years of development, resulting in a voicing that the brand claims is “quintessentially British”. Its tone is shaped by two EL34 power tubes and four preamp tubes, including a 7025, a 12AY7 and two ECC83s.

The combos and extension cabinets are complemented by Eminence Governor speakers, which are spec’ed for tight low-end, smooth midrange and sparkling top-end – perfect for Southern rock or blues.

In the control department, you’ll find a four-band EQ section as well as a preamp volume and master volume. These will allow you to dial in a variety of tones, from sparkling cleans to hot rod-style overdrive with what the brand describes as a ‘cooking valves’ character.

More depth is provided by the amp’s footswitchable, tube-driven spring reverb, inspired by ’60s Californian amps. Round the back, there’s also a series-arranged buffered FX loop that caters for time-based and modulation effects.

The Aynsley Lister signature amp is available at these prices:

Head alone: £2,599
1×12″ extension cab: £799
2×12″ extension cab: £799
1×12″ combo: £2,799
2×12″ combo: £2,999

April Dates Rescheduled

Hi all.. As some of you have already heard, Aynsley was admitted to hospital on Monday last week after being diagnosed with pneumonia.
He started almost 5 weeks ago with flu symptoms (fever, aches and pains) and a week later was diagnosed and treated for bronchitis as his symptoms developed. We expected the bronchitis to clear with the antibiotics but the symptoms kept getting worse so last Monday, I took him to see the emergency doctor who admitted him to hospital straight away. The hospital confirmed pneumonia and he was kept there for 5 days while they treated him with antibiotics and oxygen!
Thankfully, he's back home now and is recovering well, but unfortunately the doctors have advised us to reschedule our European tour dates this month until his lung capacity improves. Sincere apologies to all those planning to come to one of our April shows and a very special thanks to all the promoters for being so understanding and letting everyone know at lightning speed! The Spanish dates and any following those won't be affected.
Thanks to all for the kind words and well wishes that have been coming in over the last week.. Aynsley has been reading all of them and they've helped to keep his spirits up while he's been so ill. I'll keep you all updated with how he's getting on! Cheers, Steph
