3 British classics in a performance-ready package!

The Bel-Ray reconfigures three legendary 1960s to early-1970s sounds from across the pond into a portable, club-friendly package.

The amp dishes out classic British chime, crunch, and kerrang in a format today’s player can actually use!

Fronting a dual-EL84 output stage that generates 16 watts of power, the Bel-Ray sports a front end of two 12AX7s plus a fat British-voiced EF86 pentode tube in a triple-threat preamp that delivers Vox Top Boost chime, Marshall Plexi grind, and Hiwatt punch at the twist of a switch.

Juicy, tactile dynamics and multi-dimensional playing feel are ensured by tube rectification courtesy of an EZ81 (an essential part of the power supplies in the smaller 1960s AC combos) and atmospherics are maximized by a tube-driven, bias-modulated tremolo circuit that oozes a warm, lush, swampy throb.

Atop this versatile foundation, the Bel-Ray carries the kind of feature set that has made Carr famous for their ability to deliver vintage-caliber tones to modern playing situations.

The Level control is coupled with a High/Low volume-taper toggle which selects between a direct signal or one with a partial Master Volume inserted after the following EF86 stage.

In High, the volume comes on fast and furious, hitting the output stage harder for increased crunch.

Set to Low, the volume rolls up gradually and drives the EL84s less aggressively: perfect for at-home nighttime playing.

The Bel-Ray’s decibels are further dialed-in with Carr’s acclaimed built-in attenuator: a toggle switch flips between the full 16 watts and anywhere from 0 to 2 watts of power.

And behind it all is Carr’s hand-wired, point-to-point circuit construction, acknowledged as among the finest in the business, using military grade power components, and high-end parts to optimize clarity, depth, and playing feel!
