$2,744.00

Vincent's cheeky little brother... with reverb!

Benson released this amp ahead of schedule to be a ray of sunshine in lockdown. This fun combo is perfect for rocking out at home without getting into a fight with the neighbors. Benson took their beloved Vinny circuit and added tone control, reverb (from Benson's Tall Bird) and tube-driven power scaling.

Benson's crazy amps are built in the United States (in Portland to be specific). Benson is completely focused on hand-building high-quality amplifiers that give you a completely unique sound that can act as your personal canvas. The circuits that Christopher Benson and his team make are original, but do make use of the more than 70 years of amplifier history that is now available. Based on this knowledge, the components are carefully selected so that the very best quality and tone are guaranteed. What sets Benson amplifiers apart in particular is their incredibly rich, grand and tasteful clean tone with an enormous dynamic range. The sound is therefore full of musical overtones and through your touch you can end up in a very fine compression or even overdrive.
