Last year my brother gave me an amp with a cab that he got for $40 in a garage sale. The amp wasn't working . I decided to have a look at it and ...

http://www.jcayer.com/bricolages/renoamp.htm

The amp, a Riviera 725, is suppose to be in the 20-25 Watts range and the cabinet hold a 15" speaker. It's supposed to be a bass amp but the guitar sounds nice and clean :DevilGuitar:

Since about one year, at least 5 persons (1 from England, 1 from British Columbia, 2 from New Brunswick, 1 from Ontario) wrote me that they had the same amp.

This amp was made in the 60's in Montreal by a company called Pepco. (Pine electric company I think)

Have fun :food-smiley-004:

Hi Riff,

Thanks for the comment.

This has become my wife's bass amp. I borrow it sometime to practice, only when she's out of the house...:D So it's not for sale. But considering, the tubes replacement, all the new parts, the new 15" bass eminence speaker, plus the 15 - 18 hours I have put into it, ... :confused-smiley-010

Great job for the step by step Pepco restoration. Very useful.

I've included a link to your blog on my site. Hope you don't mind.

I'm trying to collect any info about the Pepco cie and products.

If you have any input, feel free.
