The Sportsman fuses "the insistent purity of '60s American 1x12 reverb-style amps with the more aggressive dual 6V6 power section of the late '50s." Yes, please.

We simply love these Carr Sportsman amps.
With the Headroom control up and the volume low, it produces super clean tones with plenty of sparkle and depth. When you push it, there's plenty of Texas bite and growl. Insanely fun with all kinds of color to play with.
Think updated / improved Princeton Reverb and that will get you in the ballpark.
This particular used example features the rarer 1x10 configuration, reaching a little closer towards its Princeton Reverb inspiration. We love it! A bit more focus and top end definition with a slightly lighter but still punchy low end. Condition is Very Good, with very little play and handling wear throughout. Included is a Carr padded slipcover as well.
