1995 Matchless Chieftain 2x12 combo 40 watt
Sampson era Matchless. All tube, handbuilt, point to point wired. Serviced in the last month.
This is one of the best amps ever made. Simply incredible tone.Tube spring reverb and effects loop.
Variable impedance. VG condition.
If you want the sound of the greats here it is! As used by Jimmy Page, Johnny Marr, Robert Cray,
Jimmy Vaughn and many others.
The best thing about the Chieftain is the fact you can just go strait into the amp with any reasonable guitar and achieve an incredible tone all the way from clean sound to distortion. Its a real purists amp!
This one has been used regularly so has all the usual signs of wear you'd expect from an amp this
Some light cosmetic scuffs and scratches and the carry handle has some wear to the leather.
Only half of the Matchless front name panel lights up meaning one of the light bulbs has gone but this is a five minute fix.
As with all matchless amps it is
supremely reliable and works and sounds like a dream
There are a limited number of these amps out there so grab the opportunity to own this true classic at a real bargain price.

Cash on collection or Paypal prior to collection both fine.
It is too heavy to post so pick up only please from the Camden area of London.
