Dead mint 2021 Benson Amps Chimera Head in Bourbon Burst just in! If you’re reading this, you already know how tough it is to find one of these amps! This one was purchased new by a local customer of ours and traded in to us when he purchased another amp from Benson.

From Benson: 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!
