This Single Channel Amplifier is designed for players who prefer
simplicity and use pedals for creating different timbres. The design
goal for this model was simply the most gorgeous clean tone possible
with an extremely low noise floor, a tube driven reverb that sounds
lush and never harsh even when the amp is pushed to its limits,
flexible eq without silly extremes, an input stage with massive
headroom to allow any effect to be placed in to the front of the amp.
The input gain control allows the preamp to be pushed in to slightly
broken but smooth overdrive that is very useful for many modern popular
styles. The Satin features a foot switchable mid boost and reverb.

The
unique gain structure of the Satin uses a completely separate signal
path for the reverb, avoiding the need to attenuate and re-amplify the
dry signal like most amplifier reverb designs. The dynamic range and
noise floor is preserved, something which is very evident as the Satin
has absolutely no noise whatsoever, even at gigging volumes.

The
first two gain stages of the preamp use 'parallel triodes' which
doubles the current of the gain stage and increases the gain and
headroom significantly. This is also a major contributing factor to the
low noise floor.

The power amp stage uses a 12AX7 driver
feeding 6L6GC power tubes. The power amp has the typical presence
control, plus a 'feel' control, which allows the player to control the
tightness of the power amp, so the amplifier can be dialed in much
easier for the players styles.

The Satin in the second model to
feature the awesome 'Biasmon' TM circuit, which monitors several
parameters inside the amp and calculates the perfect bias point.
Changes in wall voltages from room to room can be very quickly adjusted
for. The system on the Satin uses a single 3-color LED, Blue, Green,
Red. The player just needs to turn the bias control until the green
color illuminates. This also makes power tube biasing very simple for
the owner and doesn't require special meters or a tech.

As with
all Carol-Ann amplifiers, the Satin is built by hand and not only
burned in, but every single one is tested at an actual live show.
