Hot-Rodded, Blackface Fender Bassman tone!
The Carr Impala is one incredible tube guitar amplifier! While the Impala takes inspiration from a 60’s workhorse- the Blackface Fender Bassman, Steve Carr has managed to expand on the guttural, clean vibe of the original with all Tube Reverb, a super usable Master Volume control and the “Carr Voice”. The result is breathtaking. The Impala is one of those very rare amps that can do it all. From sweet, glassy cleans – to pushed, in your face, American overdrive – you will find it all with the Carr Impala.
An ultra-wide-range Volume control is the star of the deceptively simple control panel on this amp. At lower settings the Impala stays within the realm of that Blackface Fender clean voice. Nudging the volume up past 3 o’clock will start to add a dynamic and responsive, toothy preamp overdrive. The Master Volume allows you to dial in just the right amount of power tube thickness and overall loudness. The Carr Impala all takes pedals well due to its wonderfully solid, open tone.
This particular amp is just in on consignment and is in immaculate, like-new condition. It was never gigged- only used at home / studio. Like all our used | vintage gear it has been tested for functionality- (several times because it’s a blast to play and sounds incredible!!!) and priced to move. What you see is what you get. Sold As-is.
