Regular price $2,590.00 Sale

A Carr Amplifier for the tube tweaker in all of us! The Telstar from Carr is a whole new deal. A mixture of Power Tubes is possible with this unprecedented model. Comes stock with a 6L6 and EL84 combo but could work with 6V6's and EL34's as well! Though there are only a few controls on board, this amp has a shocking amount of variety with in it's capabilities.

A built in attenuator makes this amp sounds great at super low volumes. Think of it as a master volume that doesn't completely degrade your tone. Need it quiet still? Put in a 6V6 to bring the wattage down further. This amp can certainly provide familiar sounds but it does so with one of the easiest to navigate control panels we have ever seen. Hey, when an amp sounds great, why muddy it up with unnecessary knobs and switches?

This is the perfect amp to showcase different pickups. They all react beautifully and with the characteristics that made those tones classic in the first place.

A word from Carr Amplifiers.... "…And now for something completely different!! The Telstar blends the sinewy harmonic assertion of EL84s with the deep full control of 6L6s in a new and unique push pull recipe. You may have a 6L6 amp or an EL84 amp but not an amp that uses both types in harmony for a new pallet of expression. The Telstar sound can easily range from haunting rich cleans to creamy overdrive. Our Lean/Lush switch tailors the body of the tone while the 53/58 switch changes the overall gain structure and the frequencies the Tone control emphasizes. Sonically treading the years from early Fullerton 50s roundness thru late 50s proto British bite.
