Earhart 15 Watt
The 15 watt Earhart is our side hug to the top boost style of amplifier. Not being into the whole clone thing, we took part of the tone stack from the original 60s design, modified it, and dovetailed into the Monarch platform retaining some of the trickery that contribute to that platform’s touch sensitivity and harmonic characteristics. The Earhart also utilizes EL84 power tubes biased into class A. The result is a dream come true for those seeking a top boost type sound with better clarity, harmonics and a three dimensional feel.
Monarch 15 Watt
The Monarch is the flagship Benson Amp. It features a unique British-American switch, simple yet highly versatile controls, and perfect range of power to be used both cleanly and pushed on the stage and studio without wearing out its welcome. The circuit design is 100% original, or actually maybe just a combination of 30 different amps Chris likes plus a few ideas of his own. Either way, the resulting amplifier could be, and often is, the end of your search for perfect guitar tone.
The Atlantic 4.0™ is the most flexible “Trainwreck Style” amp ever built and is our tribute to one of the greatest guitar amplifier designers of all time, Ken Fischer. Designed as an extremely touch sensitive “players amp”, the Atlantic 4.0 gives the player tones ranging from pristine clean to over-the-top overdrive all with a twist of the guitar’s volume knob!
Newcastle 30 MKII
The NewCastle MKII builds upon the NewCastle 30 by adding the BODY control that we developed for the original McFly! We’ve added this feature to a couple of NewCastle 30’s over the years and this mod made a great amp even better! We also performed two “clean” mods that people have requested over the years that give extended clean headroom and dynamic response!
The El Guapo™ is a Two Channel 100W Plexi/High Gain Monster! Designed on the foundation of our favorite model of Vintage Plexi, the El Guapo features thick and articulate cleans that drip with harmonic richness, and reaches into the future with high-gain modern guitar tones that allow the player to cover a plethora of musical styles with ease!
The McFly MKII
The McFly from Jackson Ampworks is the first amplifier to be released in our new American Series line and is our take on the best sounding and most flexible Tweed Style amp ever made. For the first time ever, you can get authentic Tweed era tones as well as Blackface era tones all from the same amp! Available in a head or combo configuration. Black and Ivory, Hot Scarlett and Ivory and Vox Fawn and Ivory are standard colors. Call for quote for all other colors.
Britain 30 MKII
The Britain 30 MKII™ is the latest incarnation of our highly successful ‘Britain’ series of amps. Designed to augment the Britain series of amps with features that players have been requesting for years, the Britain 30 MKII takes the incredible platform created by the Britain 4.0 and streamlines it by featuring the most popular 30W EL84 Power Mode and simultaneously expands it with the addition of Power Scaling and a Master Tone control!
