Carstens Amplification Announces the Black Flag

Carstens Amplification Announces the Black Flag

A 22-watt combo packed with 6V6 tubes and a Celestion Gold speaker.

Chicago, IL (January 3, 2018) -- Drawing inspiration from British and American amps of the 1960s, the Black Flag packs a big sound from a single 12” combo. The tones are wonderfully 3-dimensional, dynamic, and touch sensitive. When pushed, the Black Flag produces a beautiful singing 6V6 tube overdrive that doesn’t squash out. Clean tones are rich, full, and open. The amp design offers clean lines and a meticulous build quality in a completely handmade product that is not only appealing to look at, but inspiring to play.
