Have a potential deal for the aforementioned amp. Curious if anyone can give any insight on the current value of one of these as info is seemingly hard to find.

Personally I give the Sampson no extra credit (or dollars). Phil is building great quality now. There is plenty of reading you will find on older and newerposts about that though.

I have seen a couple ebay sales for the Chieftains from 1550-1700. That was for a 2x12. I bought a 96 for I think 1700-1800 a few years ago and sold it for about the same. Not many for sale but if you are patient.....it is a buyers market.

Well, this was certainly not meant to start a Sampson debate. The market obviously values that era of Matchless more and I'm curious how much more on average.

I see some of the best deals on floor models ( Matchless in particular), although they are far from brand new as most have been turned on and off more than most amps guys on tgp have owned for several years.
