Carp Amplifiers MoonFish 42
"рThe MoonFish Series was created for the player who cherishes the sounds of Fullertonуs early years, yet demands more when jamming on stage,с says Carpуs Eric Carpenter. рAs a huge fan of the early blackface and tweed tones, I wanted to take that inspiration, couple it with the input of todayуs top players, and develop an amp that truly delivers without compromise.с Carp Amps' MoonFish 42 is a 40-watt head loaded with four 6V6s, a single ECC81, and a single ECC803S tubes. Its controls are Master Volume, Gainяincluding a push-pull switch with a bright capяTreble, Mid, and Bass."
