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 foot switch.
