I found a store that had both the Carr Rambler (one 12" speaker - not sure of what tubes it had) and the Victoria Regal (one 15" speaker - had the tubes that come with the amp). I connected them with an A/B switcher and played for an hour. I was using a 1965 Hagstrom 1 with single coils. With the Rambler set to the triode mode both amps sounded very similar except the Regal sounded 10 times bigger. The Regal just filled the room! Super full sounding. The Rambler had more of a midrange sound. In the pentode mode the Rambler was able to get a bigger, fuller, very clean sound but still not as big as the Regal. I believe the Rambler's tremolo is a power tube bias tremolo which I've been told sounds best when the amp is louder. I think the Regal's tremolo modulates the phase inverter tube and is supposed to sound good at any volume. I like the Regal's tremolo much better. I also like the Regal's reverb better - bigger and fuller than the Rambler's. I didn't think reverb could get any better than the Rambler's till I heard the Regal's. I tried my Timmy pedal on both amps but I was able to get sounds I liked on both amps without needing the pedal. I just turned up the volume till it was at the clean/just breaking up sound. If I were to change anything on the Regal, I would add a midrange knob. I think if I was playing in a full band with two guitars, bass, regular drums, a couple of singers and maybe a keyboard player the rambler might fit in the mix better because it is a more compact - midrange sound. But I'm playing with just myself on guitar, no vocals, a small drum kit and bass guitar. I'm after the Link Wray sound from the 50s and early 60s. I think the regal would be great for the sound I'm after. I think both amps are great sounding and the ultimate set up would probably be to play through both amps at the same time. Has anyone else tried the Regal yet? What did you think of it?
