Rob Chappers: Matchless Chieftain demo lus the PRS Choptank

http://www.matchlessamplifiers.com

The Chieftain preamp utilizes two 12AX7's for its interactive tone and two 12AX7's for the reverb circuits. This highly flexible preamp circuit is enhanced by a very active mid control. The preamp section is coupled to a pair of EL34's power tubes via a 12AX7 phase inverter for tremendous power reserve.

The 40 watt Chieftain employs a tube powered spring reverb and a broad array of tone control knobs. The classic range of bass, mid, treble, brilliance and reverb controls provides quick access and visual confirmation of 5 tube based tone shaping parameters.

Exceptionally loud sound pressure levels can be attained with no appreciable loss of tone. Additional features include an effects loop and a switchable output impedance (4, 8, 16 ohms).

Sound on the 212 Combo is delivered through two Celestion speakers: two G12H30s, each specially modified to a proprietary MATCHLESS formula. All of this is encased in an extremely sturdy hand-made 11-ply, ¾ Baltic birch cabinet, wrapped in richly textured black vinyl. The finishing touch is our signature backlit nameplate and control panel, which lets you (and the audience) know when the power is on.

The Chieftain will support almost any playing style and is considered an excellent all-purpose amplifier.

News: Boss ships TU-3 chromatic tuner.... all my problems are solved!

TU-3
BOSS SHIPS TU-3 CHROMATIC TUNER
Bestselling Compact Pedal of All Time Gets 21st Century Upgrade


Los Angeles, CA, April 1, 2010 — BOSS® is proud to announce that the TU-3 Chromatic Tuner (http://www.BossUS.com/gear/TU-3), an updated version of the pedalboard standard TU-2, is now shipping. The TU-3 is the stompbox tuner for the next generation of guitarists and bassists, retaining all the features of its predecessor while adding many new tricks of its own.

BOSS has been the industry leader in instrument tuning technology since 1983, when it introduced the TU-12, the world’s first automatic chromatic tuner. This technology was later integrated into the popular BOSS compact pedal format with the TU-2, a stompbox that has gone on to become the bestselling pedal of all time. The TU-3 simply makes the best even better by adding a number of functional enhancements to the original’s solid specs.

Housed in a rugged BOSS stompbox chassis, the TU-3 is built to last. The new high-brightness meter mode improves visibility under bright sunlight, and a newly designed 21-segment meter light ensures super accurate and visible tuning. The proprietary BOSS Accu-Pitch® function visually verifies when the target pitch is attained. The sound output is muted while the tuner is on, allowing players to tune silently on stage.

Tuning modes include Chromatic and Guitar/Bass, which allows players to tune by string number, now with support for seven-string guitars and six-string basses. The TU-3’s LED meter and arrow indicators clearly show when the instrument is in tune, with two different display modes to choose from.

To address the growing popularity of drop tunings in Metal and Hard Rock music styles, Flat Tuning mode allows players to calibrate the TU-3 for tunings up to six half-steps below standard pitch. The tuner’s reference pitch can be adjusted as well, over a range of 436-445Hz.

The TU-3 is now shipping with a retail price of $160.50.
