About This Vintage Ad

“The Chieftain preamp utilizes two 12AX7s for its interactive tone and two 12AX7s 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).

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