Nick Valensi

    As a member of The Strokes, Nick Valensi helped to revitalise rock music in 2001 when the New York band released seminal album 'Is This It?'. But more recently, he's been choosing to play a Rivolta Combinata instead of his trademark Epiphone Riviera!


    Nick Valensi was first spotted playing the Dennis Fano-designed Rivolta Combinata in 2017, at CRX gigs, his new side-project band.

    According to his guitar tech, it's his favourite guitar right now. Which begs the question: will we see him playing a Combinata when (if?) The Strokes get back together?
