The Carr folks are big fans of old Fender-style student amps—the ones you could have picked up at pawn shops once upon a time for almost nothing, but now would sell body parts for— with their classic clean voicing and  sweet, low-volume overdrive. The Skylark takes that concept and runs with it.

The Carr Skylark pushes12 watts at full power through a Celestion A-type 12” speaker for spanking tone, (but can crank at 1/10th of that level). It features plenty of tone-shaping controls, in addition to standard Volume, Treble and Bass: 

  • The Mid control goes from a ‘double scoop’ to a nasty, quacking midrange bark 
  • The Presence control lights up the high end
  • The Low/High Gain switch lets you jump instantly from mild to wild 

Like the Carr Mercury, the Skylark also has a built-in attenuator that lets the power tubes work as hard as you want—at any volume. It can get very, very quiet to accommodate your practice and recording needs—between 0-1.2 watts—but come roaring back with a bang when you ask (nicely, of course).

 

And of course, with point-to-point wiring, custom output transformers and leather cabinets (two-tone and custom finishes are also available), Skylarks sound as good as they look. 

 

One last thing: Toddzilla speaks highly of them. That says a lot. He likes their natural compression, and says they’re spongey. Todd knows tone.

Why We Like It

(A) Because they're just cool, good-sounding little amps; (C) Because the Attenuator lets you get big tube tone at really low volumes; and (B) Because Todd says so. And then there's our general feeling toward Carr amps …

We like just about everything with the Carr label on it. Steve Carr loves making amps that sound like classics and work even better. His team starts with tried-and-true designs and components, adds functions to improve their usability, pays attention to details and doesn’t cut corners. They’re built here in the U.S., and they’re built to last. And they look like nothing else. We love 'em … Carr players certainly agree.
