The Independence 35 is the first 35 watt 3 channel guitar amplifier in Matchless’ history!  In addition to the signature backlit nameplate, the three channels light up red, white, and blue.

Channel two (white) is powered by one 12AX7 and will provide ample chunk and high-gain lead.  Channel three (red) is all about fire. The master volume control is by-passable and features a cut control to thicken up and shave the highs.

The power section of the Independence starts with a 5AR4 rectifier tube and the 35 watt output is powered by two EL34s, which are cathode self biasing. A 3 position rotary switch allows for 4, 8, & 16 ohm output. The channels are switched through one footswitch.

    THIS IS THE BEST AMP EVER MADE….. Big statement but I will try to quantify this, I have a 60’s Vox and an early 50 watt Marshall plus Princeton, an early beige Twin, Orange, Hiwatt to play with in the studio, but the only amp that is setup constantly is the Independence, the reason being what ever guitar I plug in some being old/odd sound like the guitar you always wanted it to be, even a 60’s Gibson 335 12 string sounds fantastic! If you use three Mic’s a 57,  414, and an 87 on the back (Phill told me ) you get a fantastic 3D sound that I can not get close to using the other amps, you get room, clarity, punch that sits in the mix perfectly, I can not praise this amp enough.

    Best amp I ever bought in-fact I have two.
