Matchless Chieftain 1×12 Combo

Matchless Chieftain Boutique AmpNeed a great boutique amp that’s going to pump out all the tone you could ever need... If you know anything about amps, you know that the Matchless line of boutique amps really deliver a mixture of modern high fidelity mixed with an old school sensibility and taste.  The Matchless Chieftain Boutique Amp is another in their line of powerful amps that provide top quality sound.  This amp is a Class A 1x12 combo amplifier, and it is completely hand built by the professionals at Matchless.

The Chieftain is one of the Matchless Celestion Signature Series.  It is a 30 watt amp that features point to point wiring and all tubes.  It is powered by four 12AX7’s and two EL34’s.  The back of the amp provides inputs for either 4 ohm, 8 ohm, or 16 ohm operation.  On the front, you can control the bass, middle, treble, brilliance, reverb, and volume, plus there’s a master control.   The presence on the Matchless Chieftain is actually similar to that you’d find on a top of the line British amp.  Below the controls is a Matchless logo that is backlit.

This is one of the top Matchless amps on the market today, and it’s sure to provide the sound and the power you need for any gig.  While it’s not cheap—a used one may cost upwards of $2,000 or more—it is certainly worth the money.
