What We Think

When the Carr Sportsman arrived at our door, it did not take long to become the store's favorite boutique combo amplifier. Now in a gorgeous limited edition, the Green Carr Sportsman has just hit our doors! If you're looking for a lower-wattage, Fender Princeton/Deluxe tone with 20 watts, dual 6V6s and fantastic versatility, look no further.

One of our favorite features is the variable headroom control. The master volume helps control the relationship between the preamp and the power amp. Determining where the headroom is set, the volume can be set to break up early or keep things relatively clean as things get louder. Great in both a studio setting or for more headroom on stage.

This amplifier has the ability to attain classic Fender tones with an all-tube, lush reverb and "Vox"-like sparkle, with the addition of the mid control and a versatile tone stack. Carr has another mean and very "green" winner with this colorful Sportsman amplifier!

About Manufacturer

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.
