Benson Custom Chimera Reverb 30 Watt 1x12 Combo in Aunt Gertie (No Serial)

(No reviews yet)
Current Stock:

This stunning Benson Chimera Reverb features a 1x12" combo configuration, and a colorful Aunt Gertie wraparound with gold piping around the grille cloth! It's in pristine condition, and has been kept in a smoke-free environment its whole life.

A 30W grizzly powered by 4 x 6V6 tubes- this Chimera can also run at 15W off of the center pair alone for lower headroom more comparable to their beloved Monarch circuit. Just pop out the outside pair, switch the speaker output, and presto! You have a gorgeous amp that is as flexible as it is unique! With the addition of Treble and Bass controls as well as Reverb, this one is a very sensible grab'n'go for any room you might find yourself in!

There is no serial number associated with this amp due to its custom order status, but it's the real deal.

A class-act amp from an inimitable brand!
