HEADRUSH - BENSON CHIMERA

HEADRUSH - BENSON CHIMERA

$14.99Price

TONE FOR DAYS! THIS HEADRUSH RIG IS BASED ON MY BENSON CHIMERA 2X12 COMBO AND FEATURES A NEW TONE-MATCHED IR, WHICH INTEGRATES AN AMP MODEL IN THE HEADRUSH WITH THE REAL-LIFE AMP DURING THE IR CAPTURE PROCESS FOR GREATER ACCURACY AND TRANSLATION OF THE CHIMERA TO THE HEADRUSH ECOSYSTEM.

This new Headrush preset is based on one of the greatest 30-watt amps on the market today - the Benson Chimera 2x12 combo! From glassy cleans to the sweetest drive tones you have ever heard, the Chimera can do it all! This particular amp was made for me by Benson and features the early 70's marshall-style checker grill cloth that I love the look and sound of. I love touring and recording with this amp. This preset is full of great effects and tones - you won't be disappointed!

 

TONE-MATCHED IMPULSE RESPONSE INCLUDED 

  • This preset features a new tone-matched IR that integrates an existing amp model in the Headrush with the real-life Benson Chimera 2x12 combo during the IR capture process, which results in greater accuracy and translation of the Chimera to the Headrush ecosystem.
  • Please see the Instructions tab for how to import and load IRs into the patch.
