(No reviews yet)
Current Stock:

In on consignment is a 2018 Benson Chimera in mint condition. The matching 2x12 cabinet is loaded with two Celestion 70th Anniversary G12H Speakers and sounds absolutely wicked. Ships fast and safe in their original boxes! The only thing you may notice is the very light wear from on the handles of the cabinet.

"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 transformers.  Instead of the 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!"
