    New Carvin Head: V3

    Carvin's new amp looks amazing. It's a 100W 3 channel all-tube head. It has no clipping diodes, 3 modes per channel, a master volume, an adjustable solo boost, smart loops, a cabinet voiced line out, and a ton of other controls and features. It also is switchable to 50 watts and MIDI controllable. It comes with EL34's but has a bias switch for 6L6's or 5881's. The head weighs just 35 pounds too.

    It's only $899 brand new and that comes with a 10-day trial period. So 10 days after you get it, you can send it back for a full refund, no questions asked. The matching cabs are loaded with Celestion G12T-75's.

    Let me know what you guys think. Here are some links to info and clips.

    those demos on the Carvin page sound nice. A bit into Boogie's Rectifier sound, if you're hearing the same thing I am. The looks of the amp remind me of Peavey's latest amps (wondering if they're feeling the competition). I'd be interested to see the schematic for it ... considering the 3 channels, I'm always interested to see where they did the switching and how the signal path goes in the preamp. I guess I like simplicity because a single channel amps have always been my preference. Peavey did the same thing with their XXX and Satriani amps (3 channels). Must be that the modelers with all their options are giving people a lot more choices in tonal variation out of a single amp and these guys feel the need to do as much as they can to get more variation out of all tube heads. I've always wondered if I might like the Vai amp? Oh well ...

    No one else is interested in this amp? The first reviews from the first delivered amps are coming in.

    I thought it looked a lot like the JS amp also, which is intersting, since carvin makes his buddies amps (vai)
