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.

Allen V-18 Handwired Boutique Amp

The Allen V-18 Handwired Boutique Amp has been nicknamed the Sweet Spot, and there’s a reason.  allen-v-18-handwired-boutique-ampThis handwired amp, which is a boutique version of the Princeton Reverb amp made by Fender, is one of the best small amps you’ll find.  Its sound is much fuller and bigger than the Princeton, making it much better for playing larger gigs.  The Sweet Spot comes in several different sizes: a 1x10 combo, 1x12 combo, 1x15 combo, and a 2x12 combo.  The 1x10 combo features an Eminence Copperhead speaker.
