I've never thought of Carvin as genre specific. For that matter, I've never thought of Fender, Marshall or Vox as genre specific either.So i just saw an amp brand called carvin but don't know if they're any good with certain types of music, or just everything in general. Anything you know is appreciated.
Carvin has guitar amps for pretty much every Genre, but check out Steve Vai, Carvin has done the Legacy 1, 2, and now 3 over the years.So i just saw an amp brand called carvin but don't know if they're any good with certain types of music, or just everything in general. Anything you know is appreciated.
^ Aint that the truth! And every thread about a Carvin sinks faster than a lead ballon! lol! My Carvin V3M is one of the most versatile mini's ever produced and covers a lot of sonic ground. Ok back to our regularly scheduled sinking thread..... BobYou wont find a lot of folks who love them here cause they are not TGP snobbery approved. For the working man though, they are great. I have owned almost every vintage big name, highly sought after amp known. From Marshall, Fender, Vox, Mesa and Orange. The Carvins are well made, great value amps. They are direct mail order amps, so the snobs dont like them. Truth they are wonderfull full sounding amps. I have owned two, and both were great amps. The EL84 based 30 watt single 12 is fantastic. I place that amp and its 50 watt brother as one of the best grab and go small amps for the money. Its every bit as good as modern Fender, Crate, Peavey, or marshall in my mind. They usually are feature rich as well.
For under $300 used, you can find one with all tube El84's, two channel, loop, reverb, line out and foot switchable. Thats a lot for $300 used.
Currently one of my amps is a DRRI that is heavily modded with caps, speaker, tranny, tubes, even reverb mods, and a mid boost. Its a great amp...and far less versitle then a carvin 30 watt amp.
And I'll bring it back to life.It lives! (the thread that is) Im home sick today and dont even feel like playing with this sore throat and headache. Got just enough energy to paruse TGP.
Wow going for the X100B too eh? Bob
