Benson Earhart 15 Watt Amp and 1x12" Cabinet.
The Earhart is Benson's side hug to the top boost amplifier.
Benson took part of the tone stack from the original top boost design, modified it, and dovetailed into the Monarch platform.
The 15W Earhart retains some of the characteristics that contribute to the top boost amps' touch sensitivity and harmonic content.
The Earhart also utilizes EL84 power tubes biased into class A.
The result is a dream come true for those seeking a top boost type sound with better clarity, harmonics and a three dimensional feel!

Super versatile two knob design.
The Earhart features Volume, Tone, and a Normal / Top Boost switch that adds to the versatility of the circuit.
Normal takes away the chime and make the Earhart behave as a well balanced very good sounding amp (much like the Benson Monarch).
The top boost setting adds the chime on top.
In both modes the tone knob controls the balance between bass and treble frequencies.
Utilizing that in tandem with the volume can control the “tilt” of the frequencies: allowing for many different sounds from a two knob amplifier.
The midrange is very slightly scooped, but not as scooped as the original top boost amps: lending a satisfying sweetness to the sound.
