Introducing | Matchless Amplifiers
Founded by Mark Sampson and partners Rick Perotta, Steve Goodale, and Chris Perrotta, Matchless Amplifiers began as many brands do: at a kitchen table. Fast-forward over 30 years and their hand-wired, point-to-point amplifiers are some of the most sought-after in the industry, known for their durability, versatility, and of course, incredible tone.
We’re proud to finally feature this legendary name alongside our complete collection of amplification from the world’s foremost manufacturers. For a compact combo, shop the brand’s first 6V6, the Laurel Canyon 20-watt. Or, for a half-sized head, try the new HC-15, a downsized version of the popular C-30. And for extra power, plug in a Chieftain 40-watt head or full 1X12 combo, now available at the Chicago Music Exchange!
Nine countries, 24 cities, and thousands and thousands of miles, but the Boutique Guitar Showcase finds its way back to the Chicago Music Exchange again! Catch the Chicago leg of its worldwide tour on Saturday, September 10th, when the mobile guitar convention stops by our beautiful Lincoln Avenue showroom to share and sell masterworks from some of the world’s finest boutique builders.View Details
While Castedosa Guitars have already caught the attention of musicians and guitar makers, Chicago Music Exchange is one of the few dealers internationally where guitar players can get their hands on one! Come try the Conchers Baritone, and hear for yourself what the next creative evolution by a renowned guitar builder sounds like!View Details
The Gift of Music Foundation accepts instruments of any kind, then directs funds generated from the proceeds of donated instrument sales to fund supplemental programs for families that can’t afford instrument rentals. So, any instrument purchased from the Gift of Music Collection Foundation Collection at CME puts another instrument in the hands of the next generation of music makers! Visit CME to view the collection; and learn how you can donate instruments to The Gift of Music Foundation, today!View Details
