Greg - there's a customer here in the Big Sleazy, a jazz player who has 2 Benson amps. He says they were made in Chicago, but what do I know?
He has one that is fully working that he gigs with, but the other one is here in the shop with a shorted power transformer. We're still waiting for it to be rebuilt, but it looks like the spare may have to be just that, a spare to cannibalize.
Observing the circuitry, I see there is quite a bit of solid state stuff too.
I have no schema, but would like to have one. Anyone?
Yeah, they have a 15" loudspeaker with reverb, an unusual pulsing trem, & distortion mode.
Good luck recapturing, get 2 when you do,
