"Alan's amps have a very
unique tone. They are smooth (when called upon),
growly and very articulate. A combination I have never
experienced before. The midrange is very expressive and
reminds me a lot of a human voice. I have two and have
ordered a third. I buy them because I like them, pretty
simple. They can take a lot of punishment. (Run really
hard for 2 hours, then loaded into a case and on to the
next city, 200 nights a year) I highly recommend these
amps for anybody who's into improving their live or
studio rig. Plus he is a nice guy.... and not afraid of
100 watts!!! Rare these days! "
"I used a Carol Ann for most of
the lead guitar work on my new project and contacted
them to let them know how incredible the amplifier was.
I tried endless amounts of amps searching for my tone
and this amp is simply built just for how I play.

"Bold Clean tones. Creamy, sweet
and extremely dynamic overdrive tones. Superb Master
Volume Circuit. The OD2 is a bracing experience for
anyone who thinks they've seen and heard it all in
Guitar Player Magazine -
little brown amp head with an unassuming company name
like Carol-Ann has made me a believer. In as long as
Iíve played guitar, Iíve never been so taken off guard
by the way an amp sounded or felt, especially
considering how many Iíve played. "
