    living in central NC, when i needed work done on my carr rambler,
    i was able to take it right to their shop in pittsboro.
    a very cool guy named tim took care of my amp, and gave me a tour.

    only a carr badge on the door lets you know you have reached "tonal nirvana".

    thanx to tim, steve, and all at carr amps!
    their customer service is rivaled only by their tone and quality.

    I'm a fan. Rambler & Mercury get me through the day. Good times.

    I've owned both the rambler and a mercury. great sounding and very well built. Steve Carr was above the call of duty with his customer service and a great help when i was looking at amps. great company!

    One thing I must say about Carr Amps is what truly makes them a great amp is the people behind them. Steve and his crew are the best, along with their amps and that is the reason I had them in my booth during the NAMM show this year...

    Cheers

    My Carr Rambler never fails to put a smile on my face! One of my all time faves!

    Much love for Carr amps! I can safely say that my Rambler is never leaving my stable of amps. Amazing amp.

    Can't say enough about the great service I received recently on an issue I had with my Mercury! It is very apparent that the guys at Carr are top notch!

    My Mercury is my favorite amp by FAR and I have a handful of sweet vintage Fender stuff. I can't wait to try out the other amps they build. Unreal tone. Love it! I am amazed at it's versatility. The collection is collecting dust.

    Very cool. I own one of the few El Moto's. 4 EL34/4 12AX7 2 channel with gain boost. Tim was super helpful on the phone talking alternative tube possibilities now that it's about retube time.
