Description & Specs

For the Laurel Canyon, we developed a more compact cabinet in consideration of the needs of the on the go musician desiring more portability. We tested several different cabinet sizes until we found the one that hit the sweet spot between portability and ability to showcase the tonal range of the Laurel Canyon to the fullest. Controls are Volume, Bass, Mid, Treble, and Master Volume.

Powered by one 5AR4 rectifier tube, 2 x 6V6s and driven by three 12AX7s. The combination creates an unbelievably robust sound.

The optional reverb is powered by two 12AX7/ECC83’s and drives through a 2 spring reverb tank. The reverb signal is also parallel to the input signal so there is no loss in tone or power when it’s turned up.

The speaker outs are comprised of a single 4 Ohm out and an 8 Ohm out, which can only be used individually one at a time.

The standard effects loop is a ¼” send and ¼” return non buffered loop. Only time based effects are recommended such as reverb pedals, delays, chorus, etc. Boost and gain pedals are recommended to be placed in front of the amp to avoid clipping the phase inverter.

Like all of the other Matchless amplifiers, the Laurel Canyon is meticulously handcrafted to military-like specifications from start to finish. From the rugged steel chassis to the military spec. parts to the heavy Baltic birch cabinet, only the best materials are used.

The Laurel Canyon is ideal for professional studio work, playing in venues both large and small, and for home practice.

A versatile rock amp, the Laurel Canyon packs a mighty punch. From clean and punchy rhythm to sizzling leads, the Laurel Canyon delivers substantial sound in a more portable package.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
