The Tweed 30 is inspired by the three-sister amplifiers produced by Fender in the late 50s - 5F4 Super 2x10", 5E5-A Pro 1x15", and 5E7 Bandmaster 3x10". These all shared the same chassis and circuitry, but were housed in differing sized cabinets and speaker configurations.
More powerful than the Deluxe, they produce 30 Watts of 'clean' power and 50 watts cranked up all the way.

Perfect for use as a clean platform in pubs/clubs and has enough headroom to take all of your drive pedals without excessive compression. Some consider them to be mini Bassmans, and I agree.

Playing these amps is all about touch response, varying your pick attack along with your volume and tone controls to get a wide range of tones from the amp. The longer you spend learning the intricacies of the tonal palette, the more it gives you back. 

Alongside the three original speaker configurations, I have added a few more common options to suit every tonal preference.

These are:

  • Head
  • 1x12"
  • 2x10"
  • 3x10"
  • 1x15"
  • 2x12"

All amplifiers come with WGS ceramic speakers as standard, and Alnico upgrades are available.

I use very high quality components, sourced from UK companies if possible.
I do make a few small modifications to the original design, mainly an improved grounding scheme along with a few tweaks to make it more durable/reliable.

I stand behind every amplifier I make. Every Rift amplifier is guaranteed against defects in craftsmanship and components (excluding certain items) for the life of the amplifier (or my life, which ever ends first) as long as it remains in possession of the original owner.

Second hand amplifiers are not supported by the warranty.

Any user modifications or external modifications even by a qualified technician,
abuse and damage beyond normal wear and tear will void this warranty.
