Carr Amplifiers Raleigh Combo (New)

$1,530.00

The Raleigh is a versatile practice/studio amp designed to deliver both pristine clean and heavily overdriven tones at truly usable volumes. The Raleigh’s styling pays homage to the funky practice amps of the late 50s and early 60s.

Producing 4 watts, with just three knobs on the panel, the Raleigh’s secret weapon lies in a split personality that delivers everything from glassy, spanky ’60s American blackface tones to juicy, sustaining Brit-voiced overdrive, all at the flick of a switch. Fire it up for low-decibel apartment jams or mic it for the easiest clean-to-scream studio tones you’ve ever tracked, all with the full, rich, dynamic sound and feel of a much bigger amp.

The Raleigh’s aural opulence comes courtesy of a single EL84 power tube in a pure Class-A output stage, driven by two 12AX7 preamp tubes in the front end. The simple Volume and Tone controls keep the signal pure for optimal clarity and touch sensitivity, while a flick of the Clean/Overdrive toggle ramps up the gain and brings in the Master control for saturated lead tones and singing sustain, right down to hushed neighbor-friendly volume levels.

Despite its simplicity, the Raleigh is nevertheless built using Carr’s acclaimed point-to-point, hand-wired circuit construction and a hand-crafted, thin wall Baltic Birch cabinet that brings this stylishly retro 1×10″ combo in at a mere 21 lbs.
