Carr Amplifiers Introduces Skylark Combo Guitar Amp

Carr Amplifiers has introduced the Skylark 1-12-inch Combo guitar amp.

From the company:

The Skylark idea began with our love and appreciation for classic home/student Sixties American amps such as the Harvard. These small/student amps deliver organic tube juice and vibe at real-world volumes, making them super-usable and super-satisfying.

Our Skylark takes this fun utility a giant leap forward. Reverb, a built-in power attenuator, a Hi/Low gain switch and the extended range presence control offer an incredible pallet of tones from the Skylark’s dove-tailed cabinet.


  • 12 Watts full output - (Brilliant Power)
  • Built-in switchable variable attenuator 1.2 watts down to zero - (Ultra Useful)
  • Low/High Gain switch – mid-60s to Hot Rod - (Macho)
  • All tube Reverb - (Aquatic)
  • Extended range Mid control - (from Double Scoop to Bark)
  • Extended range Presence control - (Polite to Crystalline)
  • All NC yellow pine cabinet with floating baffle - (Solid Tone)
  • New Celestion A-type 12” American voiced speaker – (Dynamic)
  • Analysis Plus cable - (Super Conductive)
  • 100% Point to Point wiring - Solen Aerospace Satellite power supply capacitors
  • Selected mixed resistor types - Custom Carr power/output transformers
  • Local made saddle leather handles – Cabinets built in house

Retail/Street: $2,390

Carr Amplifiers began in 1998 with an irresistible passion for hand-wired vacuum tube guitar amplifiers. We take inspiration from the classics of the Fifties and Sixties then imagine new features, refinements in tone, reliability and ease of operation.
