  • Sale
  • Regular price $1,899.00

This practically mint condition pre-owned Soul Tramp Rail Rider amplifier is brought to you by BCR Music & Sound, Central PA’s premier guitar, amp and pedal dealer!

Includes cover, original hang tag, and printed manual.

The Rail Rider is a 20 watt EL84 Push-Pull amplifier that uses a high voltage power amp to produce in-your-face presence, and a flexible three channel preamp that lets you shape the voicing across a broad spectrum; from Country to Blues to Classic Rock.

A clean channel provides the crystal clear chime of the early British amps and a second “Soul” channel presents the full bandwidth warmth of the 60’s American amps. Then a third channel takes it all into higher gain over-drive; all controlled with a 3-button foot switch.

The articulate note separation and swirling harmonics are a clear indication of the clean signal path and thoughtful design. Tube driven spring reverb produces concert hall dynamics, and the flexible FX loop lets you extend tone shaping beyond the amp’s on-board controls.
