Allen Chihuahua

10 watts with a 6L6 power tube or 6 watts with a 6V6 power tube (8 ohm speaker load).
Loosely based on the blackface Champ™ with AB763ish reverb added.
Beefed up transformer set and power supply for use with 6V6/6L6 power tube and addition of a foot-switchable RAW control. Master volume control.The Allen Chihuahua ("chi-wah-wah") takes the home practice amp up to a whole new level. A Class A single-ended tube amp using a 6V6 for 6 watts or a 6L6 for 10 watts (selector switch on back) to drive a 10" Copperhead speaker with a full tone stack including my foot-switchable RAW control and all tube driven spring reverb! The reverb recovery has an extra gain stage which is very welcome for great overdriven tones. The RAW control unscoops the mids for a more 5F1 tweed type tone. It has a respectable amount of clean headroom and bottom end authority on bass notes for an amp this size/power. At only 17" by 17" and 24 lbs., it is the perfect grab n' go practice amp. I've added an additional filtering stage to get rid of the typical "single-ended background hum" normally produced by these little amps so it is great for recording, too! All top notch components throughout including a aluminum chassis, U.S. made power transformer, Heyboer output transformer, Accutronics 9" reverb tank, Switchcraft jacks, Carling switches, Mallory M150 tone capacitors, etc. Also available as a head and in kit form.
