    Anyone have information on the Matchless Thunderchief? I have an opportunity to buy one, but I can't find a single example of what it sounds like!

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: Oh, and the seller is a distance away so I can't try his out. Thanks.

    No. Is this the one currently in the TB ads? You could ask the seller of that one what it sounds like.

    I saw Matchless at NAMM a couple years ago. I asked em why there were no bass amps in the booth, and the guy said they stopped making the thunderchief because the it was devouring power tubes. Something about the big low end, and the combo format made for a pretty short tube life. Correct me if I'm wrong any owners, but this was from the horses mouth.

    FWIW, a buddy just picked up a matchless lightning guitar amp, and it friggin smokes!
