    I really want one of these, but doubt I can build it myself. The price of a new one is a bit out of reach. Does anyone have an Accomplice Jr. head they want to part with?

    If you can solder you can build it. David's instructions are very good.

    I can solder, but it doesn't look pretty. More importantly, I simply don't have time to build it myself. I'm working full time, watching my toddlers 3-4 nights a week while my wife works evenings, and playing in two bands. I barely have time to practice.:messedup

    I found one! I do have a question about the Accomplice Jr. vs. the standard Accomplice. The specs say no impedence switch on the Jr. I will likely want to run this at 4 ohms. The Allen website doesn't tell me the options. Anyone know if the Jr. works at 4 ohms and/or 8 ohms ??

    Got a response from Dave. The Jr. is standard with 8 ohm, using 6L6 tubes. Now, the question is, is it safe to run my 4 ohm cab into the 8 ohm head?

    I don't think that's a good idea. You can run a 4 ohm head into an 8 ohm cab but I think you will have problems the other way around. Perhaps your cab can be re-wired to be 8 ohm or maybe mod the head to be 4 ohms.

    You can go 4 - 8 or 8 - 4 with no problems.

    Small Ohm mismatch's on an amp with a good output transformer just isn't that big of a deal.

    I don't sweat bullets every time I plug my vintage tweed bassman, brownface pro and blackface super reverbs, twin reverbs, bassman's, princetons, ect into an extension cabinet.
