Mesa Boogie King Snake
The Limited Edition King Snake™ is legendary in both sound and story because it is the direct descendant of the original Boogie that stood alone at that intersection so long ago. That amp was the transitional link between the low gain single channel amps of yesteryear and today’s current high gain, multi-channel footswitching amplifiers. Before the Boogie’s appearance back then, players had to turn an amp all the way up to get overdrive and sustain and it occurred in the power section, which of course was LOUD.
Long before the birth of Carr Amplifiers, I spent years playing, repairing, modifying and intently listening to classic guitar amps. The Rambler was one of my earliest signature designs, and today it is still one of our most popular models. Why? It’s no accident that the Rambler succeeds in delivering classic American ‘deluxe’ tone with dramatically expanded clean headroom, solid bass response and the option of 28 watt pentode or 14 watt triode operation. The Rambler simply reflects my desire to improve and refine the original concept of an appropriately powered 1×12 club amp with reverb and tremolo. Rambler owners describe their amps as being warm, full and round, with a surprisingly high threshold of clean tone, (which also makes the Rambler uniquely suited to virtually any overdrive pedal ever built). The Rambler is considered by many to be the quintessential club amp, voiced to meet the needs of virtually any player, and all types of music.
With looks inherited from the iconic VOX AC30, the AC30VR offers classic British tone as well as modern high-gain sounds in one stylish 2 x 12” combo configuration.
Roland Jazz Chorus
First introduced way back in 1975, the JC-120 Jazz Chorus is one of the few guitar amps that can truly be called a legend. Roland’s long-standing flagship is universally recognized by pros as the benchmark in clean guitar sound, and its rich tone and famous built-in stereo chorus effect have been heard on countless popular songs over its long history. Now celebrating 40 years of continuous production and counting, the JC-120 remains the undisputed “king of clean,” and the enduring choice of serious guitarists everywhere.
Kustom 100 – Tuck and Roll
In the mid 1960s, a young, small-town entrepreneur named Bud Ross battled the odds to combine America’s love of music with its passion for high speed hot rods. Imagining the future wrapped in sparkling car upholstery, Ross experimented with covering speaker cabinets with the same colorful Naugahyde® material. Musicians responded with an enthusiastic “outta sight!” and an icon of the modern music industry was born.
As with all great ideas, the timing for Kustom® was perfect. What began in Ross’ garage quickly expanded to a full-blown facility in Chanutte, Kansas, with products flying out the doors to feed the dreams of musicians all across the USA. Kustom responded to the burgeoning demand by developing a full-range of amplification products, from guitar and bass amps to P.A. systems, organs, guitars, and even the first Talk Box (The Bag), as used by Stevie Wonder and Jeff Beck.
