We’re happy to announce that we’ll be returning to the winter NAMM show this year in Anaheim. It’s been several years since we ventured to California for the show and figured it was about time we re-emerged to visit with dealers, importers, vendors and industry friends.
This year we’re sharing a booth with Reverend Guitars (www.reverendguitars.com) . Ken, Penny, and the rest of the Reverend crew have been kind enough to make some for some Carr product! Our plans are to bring a good cross section of the Carr lineup, including the new and improved Mercury V for all to sample.
Come see us at NAMM booth #5793 in Hall B.
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.
