Dr. Z Carmen Ghia

CARMEN GHIA The Dr. Z Carmen Ghia is one of the most desired amps in the boutique world. This is 18 watts of all tube, point to point, hand-wired, top quality amplification!

Some people will look at the simplicity of the two knobs and 18 watt power rating and wonder if the Carmen Ghia will be able to deliver. Of course, those of us more familiar with tube amp circuitry can attest that "less is more" applies here perhaps more than any other thing in the known universe. Also, it's important to note that the Carmen Ghia was the very first amp that Dr. Z made. That was 25 years ago, and it's still one of his most popular models. No favor of the month here, or year, or even decade. It's here for good, and there's a reason for that!

The Ghia has a very useable amount of clean headroom, but as with most single volume amps, it breaks up nicely at higher settings. As the volume is increased, tones get thicker and fatter and sustain is increased.

Power Output: 18 LOUD Watts
Tube Config: Power: 2 x EL84, Preamp: 1 x 5751, 1 x 12AX7, Rectifier: 5Y3
Controls: Volume and Tone. Yep! That's it.
