Carr Amplifiers introduces what it calls “the essential EL-84 gigging amplifier”: the Lincoln guitar amp, available in 1x12 and 2x12 combo formats.

From the company:

The Lincoln concept started with a mint 1964 AC10 we purchased from a collector in England. There is a vibe - an attitude - a nagging simplicity to this semi-obscure amp.

So our journey began. The Lincoln embraces the simple Lone Wolf vibe yet goes so much further with ultra expanded tonal range and the convenience of channel switching. Sparkling cleans to heavy overdrive all at the tap of a toe. Lush reverb available on both channels and a two position attenuator for the full 18 giggable watts or a house trained 6.

Add our in house built beautiful dove-tailed cabinet and the Lincoln is at your service!
