Benson Chimera 30w Head

You're looking at a mint condition Benson Chimera 30w Head finished in a beautiful Nightmoves tolex. This is a fantastic sounding amp that is sure to bring the tone.

This 30 watt head 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!  

NOTE: This is a sale for the Chimera head only. The cabinet is not for sale.
