    Thanks! Hope you're still enjoying the FTR.


    This new HS2 serial number 0001 just arrived from Alan.

    $1995.00 w/Free shipping in US 48
    HS-2 - Home/Studio 2 channels
    16 Watts (2)6v6s

    From the Carol-Ann site:
    Due to an increased demand from both Customers and Dealers to make a lower priced amp designed for mainly home use, I have come up with a prototype for the HS-2. It’s a basic 2 channel (Clean-Slightly Driven / Overdrive) amp with separate 3 band eq and masters on each channel. The same quality components and build methods used on the other amps are used on this. It will feature a slightly different cab and front panel aesthetic and the design goal is to keep it simple but flexible. Tonally you’ll know it’s one of ours !! This amp will also be suited with small club gigs too !!

    The amp is tonally similar to the OD2r. It has a spongier feel and beaks up a little earlier. You still get the signature Carol-Ann overdrive just at lower volumes.

    Just received a shipment of Ventura's from the guys at 65.

    From 65's site:
    The Ventura is a response to the over-saturation of "Lunch Box" amps in the market that are found lacking in quality for professional players. Size and convenience should not mean compromise. The Ventura illustrates that size and convenience CAN be combined with high-level, professional functionality. The Ventura is made in 65amps’ factory in North Hollywood utilizing the same high-level materials and engineering experience of the 65amps crew.

    The Ventura uses 2-6V6 power section and front end utilizing 65amps’ most popular circuits, The Color channel of the London and the Bump Circuit of the SoHo. This allows the Ventura to create a rich palette of American and British tones all with the signature flair that has made 65amps a major presence on top-level tours and recording studios around the world.

    The "clean" side utilizes the tried and true Color Channel from 65amps' original London and the "dirty" side employs 65amps’ "Bump" circuit that made the SoHo our most popular touring amp. Players are able to seamlessly transition through 4 level of tone structure and gain structure in one amp without a thought. The Ventura is the latest offering in the 65amps "Working Pro" line that is geared towards working musicians who need super functionality and reliability while not compromising on tone and responsiveness.

    Tech specs:

    2x 6V6 power section
    Hybrid London Color channel and SoHo gain stage front end.
    EF86 Clean Channel/ EF86->12AT7 dirty side.
    12AX7 Phase inverter
    20 watts
    Bump that works on both channels = 4 Voices
    Passive FX Loop
    Master Voltage
    Knobs = Volume, Tone, Master Voltage
    Switches = Manual Channel Switch & Manual Bump Switch
    Footswitch = Dual button that controls channel and bump
    Dimensions/Weight:

    Ventura Head $1450 Shipped
    Weight: 19lbs.
    Size: 16 1/4" wide x 8" deep x 9 1/2" high with feet and handle

    Ventura Combo $1750 Shipped
    Weight: 36 lbs.
    Length 20 1/4" wide x 11" deep x 17 1/2" high
