Reviews and Comments:


The amp sounds amazing. Exactly the sound I wanted. I'm playing it through a 1x12 cab with vintage 30. Damn thing sounds amazing and is freaking loud! Thanks man! I will be ordering another shortly.

“Love the amp. Got a King of Tone clone pedal at the same time and the pair together is absolutely fantastic. Thanks-a-bunch ! - Mike”

"Carl -

I wanted to let you know the amp/cab arrived yesterday without issue (once the driver found the second package in the truck... there was a tense minute or two!).

This looks AWESOME! It's exactly as I envisioned two months ago - very, very happy with the burgundy snakeskin! Also - love the orange power indicator light.

The sound is phenomenal - exactly what I was looking for. I was very impressed with the wide range of tones that can be obtained from the controls. As I don't have any pedals - yet - I've not used the F/X loop, but did experiment with the volume controls per the included note.

Again, very impressed with the amp, cab and with the entire purchasing experience.

Thank you -

Sean S."

"Morning Carl. Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how happy I am with my amp!! I finally got enough time to put it through it's paces. I'm able to get all the tones I've been searching for with this little guy, without the ear bleed. My Les Paul screams through it. It is loud enough to play a small club or party. I think what I like the best about it is the fact that all the tone and gain controls can bring so many different levels of tone change. I think it's awesome. Thank you very much!!"

The British Custom 7 is working out nicely thus far, what a fantastic amp! Exactly what I wanted. Sounds killer tag teamed with the octal Princeton (Carl's Custom Amps)  and my Vox AC4 handwired. In fact I'm about to put it under the mics and do some guitar overdubs. Thanks again Carl!

"What a little fire breather! It's a testament to your skill as an amp maker that one EL-84, two 12AX7s and a Solid State rectifier can sound so BIG at such modest volumes. If all anybody wanted was to free their inner 16 year old then the Custom British 7 delivers. With a humbucker equipped guitar you can unleash power chords just dripping with gobs of molten fury. And you can do it all without angering the neighbors! But the Custom British 7 is no one trick pony. Even though this amp doesn't do Clean tones, per se, it does do "Clean" tones. My favorite tones in this amp are at that sweet spot where you can get a rich, lush, pick sensitive "clean" tone that manages to be overdriven and yet deeply articulate at the same time. Even Cowboy chords sparkle without turning to mud. This pint sized tornado has rapidly risen through the ranks to become my "go to" amp. Congratulations on the Custom British 7! This just might be your million dollar amp idea."
