Tone. Reliability. Versatility.
These three words encapsulate the work of NC-based Carr Amplifiers. We go way back from Steve Carr and could not be more proud to represent his amplifiers. Built to achieve incredible tones in the living room, club, studio, or big stage, Steve and his crew understand that most of us aren't playing the Forum next week - but - we want to sound like we are, even with the baby asleep in the next room.
Carr amps offer players a wide range of tones and features based off "the three food groups" - Fender, Marshall, Vox - but they are very much their own thing, not a simple copy of anything that came before. Articulate, quick attack, light low-end, beautiful top end, reverb circuits to die for, incredible built-in attenuators, boost switches - even a fantastic sounding line out on the Merc V - and custom tolex options are all harmarks of Steve's designs. He makes these circuit designs look easy - trust us, it isn't.
What can we say? Carr Amplifiers are some of our favorite amps being made today - and knowing they're also fantastic human beings doesn't hurt.
