It pained me to do the trade, but I ended up trading my new Savage Rohr 15x 1x12 for the Carr Artemus. In fact, I traded that, and a PRS SAS that was benched for it AND an SC245 with a tiny bit of cash on my end. Well, the reason I was even thinking about trading my Savage Rohr was twofold: 1) Wanted something smaller.....too heavy to lug up stairs and into the car and to practice and the gig. I am trying to simple down things. 2) wanted some more clean headroom. I guess another point would be to have fewer knobs, and no reverb. The reverb on the Rohr isnt that great for me, but the Carr Sportsman's is awesome! So after a lot of deliberation, i went for the Artemus. WOW! 2x10 package will make my band mates very happy with the saved space. It is deinfitely leaps and bounds easier to load/unload and I can do everything in one trip. Great AC30/15ish tones in SPADES from this thing. Also, some decent American flavored tones as well. ITs not tweedy type tone, but I am trying to figure it out. Anyway, awesome amp. Everyone was saying GREAT AMP when I was walking out with it. I think it might just be up there with that old DC30 that always haunted me....... Gigging it on Tuesday. Can fill more notes in then. Havent thrown a pedal at it. Used my strat and the newly acquired SC245.....which by the way was much nicer than the LP I was eyeing.....but thats another spot of contention..... check one of these out when you can.
