Carr Amps Announces the Lincoln

An 18-watt combo with a British flavor.

Pittsboro, NC (December 8, 2015) -- The Lincoln concept started with a mint 1964 AC10 we purchased from a collector in England. There is a vibe - an attitude - a nagging simplicity to this semi-obscure amp. So our journey began. The Lincoln embraces the simple Lone Wolf vibe yet goes so much further with ultra expanded tonal range and the convenience of channel switching. Sparkling cleans to heavy overdrive all at the tap of a toe. Lush reverb available on both channels and a two position attenuator for the full 18 giggable watts or a house trained 6. Add our in house built beautiful dove-tailed cabinet and the Lincoln at your service!

Features:

  • 18 Watts full output (Raw Power)
  • OD Channel Low/High Gain switch - 70s Swamp to ultra 80s overdrive - (Glamtastic)
  • Clean Channel Normal/Bright switch - Warm AC to Top Boost Jangle - (Timbre)
  • Foot switchable channels and OD Hi/Low - (Stage Ready)
  • Built-in switchable attenuator 18/6 watts- (Ultra Useful)

A versatile fuzz inspired by the legendarily damaged tones of Link Wray, Ike Turner, and Grady Martin.

Wide range of tones. Unique fuzz tones. Easy to control. Very responsive to picking dynamics and other effects.

Bias and tone controls would benefit from detents.

The idea of broken gear can be triggering to many folks, but many of us think that some amps sound best in the moments just before they kick the bucket. The EHX Ripped Speaker successfully captures that sound—without the panic and desperation that normally follow. And just as a malfunctioning amp can go unnoticed or totally change your vibe, the Ripped Speaker runs the gamut from subtle to blown out.
