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!
Scarlett 30 MKII
The Scarlett 30™ is the first signature amp we’ve ever done and is the culmination of our collaboration with Nigel Hendroff from Hillsong Church in Australia. Nigel Hendroff is one of the most influential guitarists in the history of Christian music. His style and tone have been copied by 1,000′s of musicians worldwide and his influence only continues to grow. It is because of his dedication to Jackson Ampworks and worldwide influence that we first approached him about doing a Signature Model amplifier.
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.
