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

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.

Carr Amplifiers provided amps for XX Merge, a five-day, 33-band music festival celebrating Merge Records' 20th anniversary. Most bands used some combination of the three amps we provided: a Slant 6V 1x12 combo, a Viceroy 1x12 combo, and a Hammerhead MkII head and 2x12 cabinet. The amps performed admirably through a range of musical styles from delicate to aggressive, even surviving an onslaught of half-full PBR cans during Pipe's raucous set.
