Speaking of amps, what was your go-to for the Juice sessions? I used one amp for the whole record: my Vox AC-30. It’s a reissue from the late Nineties that I modded out a little bit. I changed one of the speakers so they’re mismatched, which is what Matchless does. I have a Matchless amp I really like, too. What did you put in for the second speaker? Another Celestion, but a different wattage. One’s a 30-watt and the other’s a 15. It’s exactly the same setup as the two speakers in the Matchless 2x12 combo.more
The Matchless Chieftain 2x12" Reverb is the most versatile amp I've ever owned. I previously owned a Matchless Nighthawk and enjoy the aggressive potential of the Chieftain far more! This amp can do ANYTHING. the open-back cab allows it to breath in a controlled yet wide manner for exceptional low-end responsiveness, while the Matchless modified Celestion G12H and Greenback 25 deliver a balanced and expressive midrange and high-end control.
I've owned 6 amps and played through dozens more. This is likely to be the only class-A tube amp I will own for the rest of my life.
