SOLD!‼ Allen Chihuahua Head Blonde 2012 with Suhr 112 Cabinet


This is a 2012 blonde Allen Chihuahua Head paired with a Suhr Celestion Vintage 30 112 Cabinet, in very good clean condition and currently set up with a 6L6 power tube for 10 watts output. Optionally, a 6V6 can be used to reduce power to 6 watts. It’s also fitted with an Accutronics reverb tank.

Allen Amps was founded by Dave Allen in 1998 and has focused on point-to-point, hand built amp designs. In June of 2022, Dave Allen retired and Allen Amps was sold, with production moving from Richwood to Walton, Kentucky – a distance of under four miles.

Here’s the builder on the Allen Chihuahua, in the combo version:

“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, Accutronics 9″ reverb tank, Switchcraft jacks, Carling switches, Mallory M150 tone capacitors, etc. Also available as a head and in kit form.”
