What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent - Soft cover, footswitch and manual included

If you're a fan of the Carr Rambler, I have big news for you. This very special amp just hit our doors and is a one-off, NAMM show special. The clear plexiglass front and back exposes Steve Carr's flawless workmanship and hand wired components, and the natural wood finish makes it unique.

From the early days of Carr, we couldn't get enough of the Rambler! The Rambler is Carr's flagship model with 28 watts in the pentode position and 14 watts in triode. It's a Class A amplifier that delivers classic, American "deluxe" tone with impressive, expanded clean headroom and solid bass response. The amp features outstanding reverb and tremolo. The amp has such a sweet, full, and rich tone that it's become a favorite. It takes pedals wonderfully. From bedroom to studio to stage, the Rambler performs brilliantly in any scenario, and this unique specimen is sure to stand out in all of them.

Manufacturer's Description from Carr

Like you, all of us at Carr Amplifiers are guitarists. We share your love of the guitar, and we feel very fortunate to build amplifiers for a living at our shop in Pittsboro, North Carolina. And although we are understandably proud of our unique circuit designs, meticulous point-to-point construction, premium components and hand-crafted cabinets, our success has ultimately been the result of one simple fact; discerning guitarists continue to enthusiastically embrace the tone, reliability and versatile nature of our amplifiers. Perhaps it's because we view guitar amps as being as much an instrument as the guitar itself, and we truly believe that an amplifier should become a personal extension of every player. To that end, we strive to design and build amps with a distinct character and sonic personality, and the flexibility and practical features that will inspire you to create your very own signature sound at volume levels appropriate for home, studio and stage.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in Carr Amplifiers, and as you review the models described here, we invite you to contact us personally to assist you in choosing the best Carr amp for your needs.

Best,

Steve Carr, Founder
