Benson Chimera 30 Watt – Head

Serial Number: 100918B

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 Mercury Magnetics transformers.  Instead of a 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!

  • 4 x JJ 6V6, 2 x JJ 12X7 preamp tubes, 5AR4 rectifier
  • 30 watts 
  • Speaker outputs: 1 x 8 ohm, 1 x 16 ohm
  • Head 18.5”W 8”H 8”D 22 lbs
