Description
For your consideration is this near mint 2019 Benson Amps Earhart Reverb Combo. These are pretty rare amps, as Benson has only made a little over a handful of Earharts as combo amps with Reverb. The amp is in incredible condition and comes with a now discontinued Cully Craft, Green Canvas Slip Cover.

From Benson Amps:

“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.

The Earhart features Volume, Tone, and a Normal/Top Boost switch that adds to the versatility of the circuit. Normal takes away the chime and make the Earhart behave as a well balanced very good sounding amp much like the Monarch design. The top boost setting adds the chime on top. In both modes the tone knob control controls the balance between bass and treble frequencies…utilizing that in tandem with the volume can control the “tilt” of the frequencies allowing for many different sounds from a two knob amplifier. The midrange is very slightly scooped, but not as scooped as the original top boost style amps lending a satisfying sweetness to the sound.”
