"We strive to design and build amps with a distinct character, sonic personality, flexibility, and practical features that will inspire you to create your very own signature sound at volume levels appropriate for home, studio, and stage." - Steve Carr

The Skylark from Carr Amplifiers is an awesome choice for players that need both a home amp and the ability to cover rehearsals and/or small gigs.

With useful, well thought out features like a switchable variable attenuator (you can switch it fully out of the circuit) that can take you from a full 12 watts down to zero, and a high/low gain switch, you can achieve beautiful cleans all the way through lead worthy saturation - at 2am volume levels! Very, very cool.

The reverb circuit offers everything from just a touch of dimension though Dick Dale approved wash. Though based on a Fender Harvard, our impression is that this a great Princeton Reverb alternative - slightly more features and a little less volume (though not tons).

Simply an awesome, highly portable amp!
