The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌ SOLD ❌ Carr Sportsman 19 Watt 1×12 Amplifier, 2013


Designed by Steve Carr and hand built using point to point techniques in Pittsboro North Carolina, the versatile Carr Sportsman pushes 19 6V6 watts through a single speaker.

This compact Carr Sportsman amplifier uses the Patriot 12 inch speaker and a solid pine cabinet covered in black tolex. For tubes, it uses 2x 12AX7, 2x 12AT7, and 2x 6V6 in a class A design for the power section.   The completion date on the tube chart lists 09 / 18 / 2013,  or September 18  2013, so it’s just about exactly five years old. 

This amp is in very nice condition, and its compact size and relatively low weight make it easy to move around. At 19 watts, it’s got enough power to make itself heard, but also fits very well into a studio context.  

Do check out the official demo video linked in this post, which clearly shows the Sportsman’s versatility.

Here is what Carr says about the Sportsman.

“Fusing the insistent purity of ’60s American 1×10 reverb-style amps with the more aggressive dual 6V6 power section of the late ’50s, we bring you the Sportsman! Tones ranging from clear and snappy to Texas pushed twang to intercontinental grind are all under the hood of the Sportsman. The combination of Volume, Headroom, and Mid controls puts this tonal palette in your calloused fingertips.”
