Rift Amplification Aynsley Lister Signature 35w 1x12 Combo Amp in Black

Glorious handwired tone designed with UK blues heavyweight Anysley Lister


Anysley Lister is one of the UK’s hottest contemporary blues guitarists – many consider him to be among the best in the world. Rift Amps, based in the UK’s Midlands, are purveyors of pristine vintage-inspired valve amps, hand-built to order. It’s a tonal match made in heaven. Introducing the Rift Amplification Aynsley Lister signature combo! 

‘My Sound, In a Box’

When Lister and Fantana (Rift Amps’ mastermind) began their collaboration some years ago, the brief was simple: Lister’s sound, in a box. This meant combining the beautiful crisp tones of classic British amps with expanded tonal controls for a modern edge – the best of both worlds.

Quintessential UK Sound

The resulting combo amp offers 35W of pure handwired beauty. An EL34-driven power amp delivers heaps of gutsy tone with a quintessential midrange snarl and presence. An expanded 4-band EQ, along with a buffered FX loop and footswitchable valve-driven spring reverb, makes the Rift Aynsley Lister a true blues workhorse.

Here's what Rift Amplifications say about the Aynsley Lister Signature:

Signature amplifier for British blues guitarist, Aynsley Lister. A 35w, all-valve EL34 handwired guitar amplifier full of classic tone!

Developed over a period of 5 years with the design brief “my sound, in a box”. Chris Fantana (Rift) and Aynsley worked through many prototype stages searching for that sound, eventually zoning in on a quintessentially ‘British’ voiced amplifier packed full of real-world features and functions, useable both on the stage and in the studio.

The amplifier features a 4-band EQ section, along with Preamp Volume and Master volume controls, allowing you to dial in shimmering cleans right through to hot-rodded overdrive with that classic ‘cooking valves’ tone.

Foot-switchable valve-driven spring reverb allows the player to create the space, depth, and ambience normally associated with 60’s Californian amplifiers, and a series buffered FX loop situated on the rear panel allows time-domain, boost, and other modulation effects to be used in harmony.
