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!
Watch any of the Oasis music videos from the height of the band’s mid-’90s heyday—like “Don’t Look Back In Anger” or “Champagne Supernova,” for example—or live concert footage from that era, and you’re sure to see the guitar that started it all for Noel Gallagher. While the guitarist played various Gibson and Epiphone guitars during the early Oasis tours, it was his ‘80s Epiphone Riviera in a Dark Wine Red finish that really stood out.View Details
