The Dr Z Carmen Ghia amp is delightfully simple to operate and it outputs delicious, warm, class A overdrive from the EL84 output section at reasonable volumes.  

Built into the cabinet is Dr Z's Brake attenuator, so you can clamp it down further if you need to.

The amp lands in a realm that most players are searching for these days.  18 watts of power gets you rich tone at reasonable volumes.  Two 10" speakers allow for stage performance, moving enough air to gig.  It weighs a reasonable 44 pounds.  

As is the case with all the amps we sell, the tubes have been tested, potentiometers cleaned, and a full view of the inside of the chassis provided in pictures.  

Web speak about the amp:

"With 18 watts of Class A power, the Dr. Z Carmen Ghia tube amplifier sits in the Goldilocks zone when it comes to volume — not too loud, not too weak. You'll be able to hold your own against any drummer, without being too loud for club stages. Your clean tones will sound complex and vibrant, with outstanding sustain. Crank up the volume knob, and you're treated to glorious tube drive from dual 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power amp tubes. It's a tight, punchy sound that never gets flubby or indistinct. If you're looking for a workhorse tube amplifier that also takes pedals extremely well, check out the Dr. Z Carmen Ghia tube amplifier."
