Raleigh

Video Demo of the Raleigh

In this video Guitar World's gear editor Paul Riario demonstrates the features of the Carr Raleigh 1x10 combo amp. As some of you have noticed, we are a little short on Raleigh sound files. If you've yearned to hear more of the Raleigh, this video demonstration provides a good overview of what the amp can do. By the way, we pronounce it RA-lee not Rally.

Rambler Review in JazzTimes

JazzTimes, Oct 2009

JazzTimes, Oct 2009

This month's issue of JazzTimes has a review of the Rambler. Reviewer Russell Carlson writes: I'd say what you're paying for--beyond the great tone--is top-notch craftsmanship, hand-wired electronics and thoughtful, well-researched design that adds up to a solid piece of dependable equipment. Incidently, the cover story is on Nels Cline, who plays a Raleigh and a Rambler. Update - 4 Nov 2009: JazzTimes has put the review online at http://jazztimes.com/articles/25115-gearhead-carr-rambler-amplifier.

Small But Mighty

Vintage Guitar Cover, Oct 2009

The Raleigh gets a mighty fine review in the October 2009 issue of Vintage Guitar Magazine. Reviewer Sean O'Bryan Smith writes:
Through rigorous use on a number of recording sessions, it was obvious there's a lot of tone in this little guy. Dirty or clean, the Raleigh held a great amount of warmth, but was surprisingly transparent. It did not overly color the natural tone of the guitar unless called upon to do so, yet retained the natural characteristics of an EL84 amp. This is a very cool balancing act. And clean tones are full of shimmer.

Raleigh Review

Guitar World Cover, Aug 2009

Guitar World Cover, Aug 2009

The Raleigh gets reviewed in the August 2009 issue of Guitar World. There is also a good video demonstration of the Raleigh on the CD included with the magazine. Reviewer Eric Kirkland writes: Its three watts produce surprisingly loud Sixties-style clean tones as well as southern-fried overdrive that sizzles with fat and sustain, making the Raleigh one very versatile little amp.
