Richie Kotzen

The RK100 Richie Kotzen signature head is Cornford's most powerful amplifier, sporting a quartet of EL34s for 100 Watts of earth shattering power.

Guitarist Richie Kotzen needs no introduction.

This amp is a fusion of his dynamism, articulation and sheer rock presence, with the ear and expertise of Cornford designer Martin Kidd.

Whatever your particular style, if you great tone and you need it real loud, the Cornford RK100 is for you.

A quartet of EL34s give it the flavour of the plexiglass amps of yesteryear, but we've added a dollop of Cornford's own special sauce to bring this monster of an amp kicking and screaming into the twenty first century.

"While this amp is ideally suited to high-gain, balls-to-the-wall playing, more subtle tones offer unparalleled depth" Guitarist Magazine.
