With the Alamo Challenger you get a great dirty blues saturated tube overdrive that can only be found in low wattage amps, plus you can really dial in your sound with the tone control. The tubes in this amp are a GE 5Y3GT, an RCA 6V6GT, and a 12AX7 with its markings worn off. The original Alamo blue label 8" speaker has been replaced with a Zenith 10" 8-ohm speaker.
This amp is a great way to get into the tweed era sounds at a fraction of the price of a tweed era Fender. Cabinet, Chassis, and Face Plate: the grille cloth looks virtually flawless; the tolex has a few small tears and holes in it, mainly along the side edges; the control panel has a few light scuff marks and scratches; the metal clamps for the handle have some noticeable pitting and rust in the finish, but the rubber feet are intact. Pots and Switch: both knobs and the power switch function properly.
Jacks and Connectors: all the connectors are intact and function properly, plus the power cord just has a few light scuff marks on it. LED Indicator: the LED indicator works properly. Speaker: not original, but sounds fantastic and looks great. Includes: guitar combo amplifier (original speaker, cover, and manual not included).1 x GE 5Y3GT tube. 1 x RCA 6v6GT tube. 1 x 12AX7 preamp tube (markings have worn off). 1 x 10 non original Zenith speaker.
