Benson Amps Chimera Head 30W Guitar Amplifier + 2x12 Cabinet in Bourbon Burst finish with Black Grill. This is a premium finish and looks amazing!

Brand New in stock ready to ship! New Benson Amps are impossibly hard to get in stock, we waited over 6 months for this one, and there's typically a 6-12+ month wait to get one if you can even get on a list. Photos are of a previous Bourbon Burst Chimera we had in stock, the new one looks identical except the speakers in the 2x12 are Benson Custom Ceramic Speakers. Don't pass this up!
Chimera 30 Watt Guitar Amplifier Bourbon Burst

This 30 watt head and 2x12 companion speaker cabinet is for players who love the unique tone and bread-and-butter simplicity of the Monarch, but need it in a louder package for the big stage. Like other Bensons, it is fully hand-wired point to point on terminal strips using premium components and Mercury Magnetics transformers.  Instead of a British-American switch, the Chimera has a bass control that takes the differences between the voices of the Monarch and makes them variable.  The tone controls are musical and versatile… it is hard to find a harsh sound!
