Featured Video: Allen Amplification Chihuahua Amp Kit

| November 4, 2010 | 0 Comments

Here’s a new demo video of Allen Amplification’s Chihuahua kit amplifier. The Chihuahua (“chi-wah-wah”) is a Class A single-ended tube amp using a single 6L6 or EL34 power tube for 10 watts to drive a 10″ Copperhead speaker with a full tone stack including RAW mid/gain boost control and all tube driven spring reverb. The reverb recovery has an extra gain stage which is for great overdriven tones. The RAW control unscoops the mids for a more 5F1 tweed type tone. At only 17″ by 17″ and 24lbs it is a grab n’ go practice amp. An additional filtering stage has been added to get rid of the typical “single-ended background hum” normally produced by these little amps so it is great for recording. Components include a stainless-steel chassis, US made power transformer, Heyboer output transformer, Accutronics 9″ reverb tank, Switchcraft jacks, Carling switch, Mallory M150 tone capacitors, etc.

The complete kit costs $699 and is not recommended for beginners. Visit Allen Amplification for more information.
