Carr Artemus Boutique Amp

The Carr Artemus is a very versatile amp powered by four EL-84 power tubes. The amp features a fixed bias output that packs quite a punch but also has a smooth break up. The Mid and Edge controls allow you to sculpt the tones and pull everything from mellow cleans to a nasty overdrive. The Artemus features two 12AX7 pre-amp tubes, but unlike some amps, these tubes use an input modified circuit that emulates the EF-86 in thickness and in gain without use microphonics.

The Carr Aretemus features a volume, edge, bass, mid, and treble control. The amp also has a 30/15 watt toggle switch, plus a bias pot and bias test point. In addition to the 12AX7s and EL-84s, the amp also features a 5AR4/GZ34 rectifier tube. All in all, the amp is very versatile and of high quality. Used, the Artemus amp costs around $2,000.
