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)

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?
