We made three prototype cabinets designs for the Lincoln before settling on the final look.
Each had an interesting vibe but the final design sounded best, looked best, and balanced best when being carried.
Lots to consider! Here is the sketch that led to the final cab and a shot of that concept being made.
- plus the earliest cab design we did in February 2015 - the photo is me showing it to George of Chicago Music Exchange.
We go thru a ton of trial and error in both the circuit and cabinet development!
One of our favorite customers recently called us with the sad news that his beloved Impala had been in a flood, and spent several days completely submerged.
Over the next few weeks, we're going to be documenting the restoration of his amp. First up: Taking it apart, and assessing the damage. Stay tuned !
We're always thinking ahead here at Carr Amps. Even though our production staff is running full tilt, keeping up with demand, we've got a couple of suprises in store for later this year.(Mailbox amp not included.) Stay tuned !
Time to start the journey that occasionally leads us to that little corner of The Twilight Zone entitled "new amp".
We employed a few changes on the new Skylark, such as Celestion A-Type speakers, a Bauhaus-inspired rear grille, tube shields, and graduated feet, that give the amp a slight rear lean.
Steve had a wonderful time recently at our fine and gracious dealer Artisan Guitars Franklin TN.
Big thanks to the folks who came out, they were a delight and very attentive !
Here we are with the custom Skylark mirror presented to Bill and Ellie and their crew.
We'll be visiting more of our dealers soon, hope to see you there... stay tuned !
This is the extended version of the video we made at Mitch's Fidelitorium studio, with more sound clips, anecdotes, and tech talk than we could fit in the short version. Enjoy !
