Hi again Ric fellows...I dont know if this Rickenbacker 35watt Bascombo is rare in the States...but here in Sweden it is...I have only seen one more amp than mine in fact over the years...Its my first bass amp and I bought it over 20years ago new...and it stills works perfect and sounds excellent..and I´ve gotta admit it looks quite cool together whit my Ric basses also....for Gigs I have a Ampeg V4-B or a Marshall JMP head....but i still use my TR-35B for practicing...have even used it for smaller Gigs...and I must say it sounds much fuller and rounder than many of the newer small combo amps on the market...no special brand named.
RIC ON....
Frank.

Hey! I do own a TR35B myself. Serial number is TM 003775. It's the version with the silver Rickenbacker logo on the grille cloth, near the top left corner of the unit. Total Rick tone, gets nastier :o) when connected to a PA system. I wouldn't trade it for anything else. I live in Portugal, by the way, where Rickenbacker amplifiers are not exactly easy to find either. Cheers.

hello,
I too own a rickenbacker bass amp tr35b.
the serial number is TT004414.
I'm 28 years old and I live in belgium.
I bought this bass amp ten years ago in a little music shop when I started to learn bass guitar and I played for about 8 years with.
now,I don't use it anymore but I turn it on sometimes when I play at home.
It works perfectly but I've lost the metal thing with the logo on the front.
It's true that this amp sounds really good and even better than new amps,that are sold today into the music shops.
but,for me,the problem is that it's not enough loud to play with the most drummers...;.)
bye.

Here's the description from the RIckenbacker Solid State Amplifier Series catalog:

"MODEL TR-35B...The Model TR-35B is a low-priced, highly portable amplifier, specifically designed to complement a varied range of instruments. The TR-35B combines all the features found on other TR series amplifiers, such as pre-amp in/out, external speaker jack, and a single 15" speaker specially designed for maximum projection built into a surprisingly versatile unit weighing only 35 pounds. Reasonably priced, this conservatively rated 35 watt amplifier is perfect for practicing, recording and performing small club engagements. Its wide range of tonal response makes it the ideal companion for the multi-instrumentalist."

so is it safe to assume that it also makes a wonderful guitar amplifier??
does anybody have experience with such an application?

I don't have a TR35B , but I have a RB120 bass amp. It seems to work well as as guitar amp also. Just need pedals for distortion/overdrive, reverb, etc.
