The Pro-grade single channel preamp with its interactive tone controls is coupled to a serious dual-EL84 power section with a tube rectifier. All models have active EQ to attain an excellent array of complex tones. User controls: Volume, Interactive Bass & Treble, and Master Volume.

- This amp is a joy to play through! Review by Jonn
Features Value Quality
I play mostly in small clubs and at a medium sized church. For the latter, stage volume control can be a big issue, which is why I was looking for a 15 watt amp. And this amp can sound really good at volumes well below where similar 30 watt amps start to sound good. Yet it can get surprisingly loud too, and can hold it's own in louder settings.
I gave it 5 stars for features, even though there is nothing fancy or extra here. But it has just what I need and delivers so well. I considered getting it without reverb as I've never been a big fan of built in amp reverbs (Twin being the exception), but I'm so glad I got it with the reverb - it is nice and smooth with a great, controllable range.
I gave it 5 stars for value, even though it is not a cheap amp. For me, it was a big purchase and took some time to work into the budget. But I've played through a lot of good quality amps and this one notches up what is delivered to where I feel it is well worth the cost.
I gave it 5 stars for quality. It's simply the best sounding amp I've ever played through.
Pro Audio Land was great to work with on acquiring the amp. They didn't have one in stock, but had one built by Matchless to my specifications. They kept me informed of the process and got the amp shipped to me the day they got it from Matchless. (Posted on 3/4/2011)
