These Matchless amps kick some serious @ss! There is just no comparison to the build quality and stout nature of every facet of this piece, from the cab, through the circuit, down to the speaker.
The tone is amazing - like an AC30 on steroids. Loud, full cleans to overdrive heaven, it does it all. The settings are simple and intuitive.
The amp functions perfectly and is 100% original, including the cover. The looks are something else as well - one classy chassis!
While these amps have been desirable for years, the last year has seen the supply of Sampson era amps dry up quickly. I had 7 Matchless Lightning amps a few months back and man, did they fly out the door quick! I am certain these will prove to be a solid investment, one that you'll love having around!
