Benson Amps Chimera 30 Watt Guitar Amplifier Head & 2×12 Cabinet

This 30 watt head and 2×12 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!
