    Tweed w/ mint faceplate & cream knobs getting sent to Electric-Mojo in Montreal. The popularity of Carr amps must have exploded in the new year as 2 month wait times for the Telstar alone went up to almost 6 months lol

    I know it'll be worth it though...

    I'm actually wiring up the chassy for yours today! Things going the way they usually do, that means you'll probably see it in about 2 weeks. Orders went crazy at the turn of the year, probably right when you ordered this. We do appreciate everyone who is waiting and want you to know it will be worth it!

    Just finished your chassy. I'd show you pics here but that seems more complicated than building an amp.

    Thanks for chiming in!!! I can hardly wait for my Navy Blue Telstar Head - with a gray faceplate!
    Actually, it’s my hubby’s wedding anniversary gift. ( date passed already though)

    Heavyrebel, you are the man! Thanks for the update brother and the great work you and the other guys at Carr are doing is far more important than any picture update I could receive, just your reaching out and updating me on it personally is as good as gold my friend, and very much appreciated!

    I know for a fact the amp will be worth the wait and I'm now officially super stoked!

    More Telstar action within a live band. I am really digging this amp!
    The amp is set up with a JJ EL84 and a 6V6 in this clip.

    Well, I lied before about the 2 weeks. Looks like your amp is going out to Electric Mojo today!

    The stock speaker in the Telstar deserves some more recognition, it’s so damn good. Just an excellent pairing with this amp.

    Now that we have the Telstar, Mercury, and the Two Rock 1x12...it has been decided to sell off the Divided by 13 2x12 cab. Going to get a TR 2x12 to replace it. Really loving the Telstar and the Mercury at this point!
