2019 Benson Chimera Reverb 2x12" Combo

(No reviews yet)
Current Stock:

Benson's meteoric rise in the last 5 years was no surprise to us here at El Diablo. We remember this beauty when it came in! Roaring cleans, everything from Tweed to Blackpanel-style overdrive, reverb that makes dead rooms feel live- an all around tremendous pedalboard platform. The Chimera Combo is a fantastic choice for any stage, but is well suited for larger rooms. With single-coils this amp is all glass, but with humbuckers you hear the preamp start to cook and it is then you start to see the versatility and the elegance of this amp through its simplicity.  

Gently used, this one sports some light wear on the tolex- but no significant damage whatsoever. A bonafide gem in the boutique amp class- this heirloom build makes you a part of the Benson cult! Join now!
