Matchless were making modified Vox style amps back in the 90s, and the original examples will set you back a small fortune. This little punch machine started life as a standard Ceriatone Lightning kit, but it's been bolstered by a set of genuine Matchless transformers and a set of caps by Sprague and Sozo. The result is a low-wattage amp with remarkable touch sensitivity and soaring complexity. With the input volume below midday, this offers a chiming clean tone with heaps of breath and note separation. With the volume dimed, you get a mammoth growl with a lovely girth through the low end and a sweet, eloquent treble. This is a really enjoyable amp, pair it with spicy cab and you're going to have a very, very fun time.
