Carr Amplifiers Introduces the Telstar Combo

The amp design blends the harmonic assertion of EL84s with the deep control of 6L6s.

Pittsboro, NC (October 12, 2018) -- The Carr Telstar. 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.

  • 17 Watts full output - (Double Digit Power)
  • 6L6 (stock) plus EL84 power tubes together in push pull class A - (Unprecedented)
