I just picked up a new Carr Viceroy (formerly Vincent) on Friday and so far I'm loving this amp. It's really compact with plenty of nice tones at low and high volume. This amp is surprisingly loud! The 7 watt setting is very cool for earlier breakup. The 33 watt setting should compete with any drummer. The tone is fat without getting mushy on the bottom end. Lots of spank on the top end. Great cleans... overdrive sounds sweet with my Keeley BD2 and FB2. When cranked The break up is nice and round and typical of 6l6's. (side note: I'm a huge box of rocks fan but I'm not so psyched about the way the BoR sounds with this amp). The Keeley BD2 is really perfect for that tweed crunch and my teles. I like the Winged "C"'s that came stock and I actually like the way the EH 12AX7 and AT7's tubes sound stock. I'm gonna go with a Mullard CV4024 or early RCA 12AT7 for the reverb. Should help the drive control reverb and drive both share V2 (12AT7). Maybe try a NOS RCA 7025, Mullard or Tesla in V1. Waiting for rehearsal tomorrow night to put the boost through the paces. As a double bonus the Studio Slips cover I bought for my Victoria 20112 fits perfectly. That will give you an idea of how compact this amp is. Bottom line is Steve Carr makes a nice amp. I used to own the Slant V6, and gigged with it all last year. That's another versitile gigging amp for any working musician.
