Carr Amplifiers introduces the New Skylark 1-12” Combo Guitar Amplifier available from Carr Dealers everywhere.

The Skylark idea began with our love and appreciation for classic home/student 60s American amps such as the Harvard to name but one.  These small – student amps deliver organic tube juice and vibe at real world volumes – making them super usable and super satisfying.  Our Skylark takes this fun utility a giant leap forward.

Reverb, a built in power attenuator, Hi/Low gain switch, and the extended range presence control offer an incredible pallet of tones from the Skylark’s beautiful dove-tailed cabinet.
