    Carvin MTS

    I am thinking about buying a new Carvin MTS3212 100W 2x12 combo. I have heard very good things about it and Carvin in general. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this amp.

    I am planning on changing the tubes to JJ E34L's and JJ 12AX7's. It comes with 2 Celestion G12-T75's but I might swap one with a Vintage 30.

    I am looking for 70's to 80's hard rock lead tones similar to EVH, Slash, Satch, etc... I play mostly leads as I have another guitarist in my band who handles most of the rhythm stuff and I play in a classic rock to hard rock style.

    How do the clipping diodes affect the distortion? Are they a major problem? Do my mods sound practical for my style? I'd really appreciate any input on this amp or any advice on other tube amp alternatives in the 'less than $1000' price range. Thanx.

    I think Carvin guitars are nice (I have a bolt kit--the pups were doggy-doo though) but the PA gear is not that great. I've only heard a coupla Carvin amps and was NOT impressed.


    I would check www.harmony-central.com and see if anyone over there has any comments. Sorry I'm not much help but I'm skeptical of their electronics gear.
