Carr Amplifiers Announces the Skylark

The Skylark includes reverb, power attenuator, and a Hi/Low gain switch.

Pittsboro, NC (May 8, 2014) -- The Skylark idea began with our love and appreciation for classic home/student 60s American amps such as the Harvard to name but one. These small – student amps deliver organic tube juice and vibe at real world volumes – making them super usable and super satisfying. Our Skylark takes this fun utility a giant leap forward. Reverb, a built in power attenuator, Hi/Low gain switch, and the extended range presence control offer an incredible pallet of tones from the Skylark’s beautiful dove-tailed cabinet.

  • 12 Watts full output - (Brilliant Power)
  • Built-in switchable variable attenuator 1.2 watts down to zero - (Ultra Useful)
  • Low/High Gain switch – mid-60s to Hot Rod - (Macho)
  • All tube Reverb - (Aquatic)
  • Extended range Mid control - (from Double Scoop to Bark)
  • Extended range Presence control - (Polite to Crystalline)
  • All NC yellow pine cabinet with floating baffle - (Solid Tone)
  • New Celestion A-type 12” American voiced speaker – (Dynamic)
  • Analysis Plus cable - (Super Conductive)

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
