Up for sale is a pristine 2022 Benson Earhart Reverb 1x12” combo, meticulously hand-wired in Portland, OR. Inspired by the voice of the Vox Top Boost, this circuit delivers on the clear chime and the splatty, blown out overdrive so widely found throughout British music since the 60s.

The control panel is divine simplicity with the only controls being the Normal/Top Boost voicing switch and a tilt EQ control familiarly entitled "Tone". The entire sweep of the tone control yields continuously usable sounds from warm and muted to crystalline cleans reminiscent of the great David Howell Evans. The reverb on this one is drippier than any outboard tank we've heard, but it may also be used to add just a touch of dimension to the amp in a dead room. Simple, and highly effective!

If it's transparent and open top end that you're still looking for- you've found it! Wrapped in a gorgeous British Racing Green tolex and basket weave grille cloth. Kept in excellent condition, you're next great inspiration and investment is waiting for you!
