This 2005 Divided by 13 RSA31 and matching 2x12F cabinet have such a distinct, dialed look.  If it were just sharp looking, that would be disappointing, but the thought put into the tone follows the outward design.

These amps have their fan base, and justifiably so.  You don't see many floating around out there, likely because most people keep them.  

We've had a  couple come through recently and we've fallen in love.  One went home with our employee, Tim, who traded in two amps toward it.  I love EL84, Vox and Marshall circuits, so it is no surprise that this amp impressed me.  

The pair came as part of a huge collection purchase.  Most of the items in the collection were rarely used, some never.  This amp shows very little use.  We tested all the tubes and put it through its paces before listing.  It totally rocks and is fully functional without issues.  There are no changes or repairs.  

The Divided by 13 RSA 31 amplifier represents a pinnacle in boutique amp design, renowned for its meticulous craftsmanship and versatile tonal capabilities. Designed by Fred Taccone, the founder of Divided by 13, the RSA 31 is a testament to his commitment to creating high-quality, hand-wired amplifiers.

The RSA 31 is inspired by classic British amplifiers, combining elements from Vox, Marshall, and Hiwatt to create a unique and flexible sound profile. It features an EL84-based power section, which is key to its ability to produce the chimey, articulate tones reminiscent of vintage Vox amps. However, it also incorporates design aspects that allow it to achieve the higher gain and punch typically associated with Marshall amps, as well as the clarity and headroom of Hiwatt.

One of the standout features of the RSA 31 is its dual-channel configuration. The amp has two distinct channels: Channel 1, with a top boost and standard input, provides a wide range of tones from clean and sparkly to rich and overdriven; Channel 2, with its single input, offers a more straightforward, raw sound. This dual-channel design, coupled with a master volume control, allows for seamless transitions between clean and distorted sounds, making it highly adaptable for various playing styles and genres.

The construction of the RSA 31 is as impressive as its sound. Each amp is meticulously hand-wired using high-quality components, ensuring reliability and superior performance. The attention to detail in the build quality translates to a robust and road-worthy amplifier that can withstand the rigors of touring and frequent use.

Artists who use the RSA 31 appreciate its dynamic response and the ability to capture a wide range of tones with exceptional clarity. Whether it's delivering shimmering cleans, crunchy rhythms, or searing leads, the RSA 31 excels in providing the tonal versatility required for diverse musical contexts.

Overall, the Divided by 13 RSA 31 amplifier stands out in the crowded field of boutique amplifiers, offering a blend of classic and modern tones, exceptional build quality, and a versatile platform that can adapt to any playing style. Its reputation among professional musicians underscores its status as a premier choice for those seeking an amplifier that delivers both in the studio and on stage.
