Allen Amps

Allen Amplification features seven different all tube and hand-wired boutique amps.  allen-ampsThese amps are based on classic circuits from the 1960s, but while the basic design is vintage, they add some new dimensions to the mix. 

The Classic 10 Combo amp is ten watts of great tone control.  It features a unique type of boost switch that really gives you more mids and highs to make your lead sound cut.  It’s a fairly simple amp without a lot of bells and whistles, but it will give you an amazing clean tone and it breaks up nicely when pushed.

Then there’s the Sweet Spot.  This amp can provide 18 or 25 watts of juice with bass, middle, and treble controls plus a bright switch.  The reverb is completely tube driven, and it features adjustable fixed bias.

The Accomplice amp has several different power options—22, 35, or even 40 watts.  It brings in a master volume control, bass, treble, middle, and raw controls, and a bright switch.  It’s designed after the Fender Deluxe Reverb, but it doesn’t include vibrato or a normal channel.  The Accomplice Jr. is also available.  This amp provides many of the same features as the Accomplice but it’s been shrunk down to fit in a smaller chassis.

The Brown Sugar amp brings 30 or 15 watts of power in an AB class amp.  It brings middle, bass, treble, raw, presence, and bright controls.  The reverb uses a 3-spring medium delay accutronics tank with shielded cables and tone control.

Want something a bit simpler?  The Hot Fudge amp features only a single tone control and a deep switch.  It does, however, have a vibrato that features all tube circuitry.  The deep switch adds in an extra 50uf cathode bypass capacitor, bringing more of a Fender like sound.

Then there’s the Encore.  This amp has 35 watts of power and several different options, including treble, bass, midrange, bright, and raw.  It has recently been given a new faceplate style, updating this amp so that it looks just as incredible as it sounds.

Finally, the Old Flame is an updated version of the classic Old Frame amp that was available years ago.  It features a new angled front, a stainless steel chassis, and new barrel knobs.  It comes in two new models, too: a 1x12 and a 4x10.
