Local Pickup only. This is a used amp in fully functional condition. Cool unique vintage piece. Tubes tested and pots cleans by our shop tech. Guaranteed to work on arrival, however with serious gigging, further service may be needed.
Throughout most of the 1980’s, it was pretty much impossible to read a guitar magazine without seeing large ads for Carvin guitars and amplifiers. Usually, the featured amplifier was Carvin’s X100B amp head. Artists as diverse as Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, and Craig Chaquico swore by the Carvin’s wide array of versatile sounds. Carvin discontinued the line for years, but have recently reintroduced both the head and 2×12 combo version. The newer models are an attempt to capture the magic of the originals.
The amp head itself is a dual channel 100W amp that is switchable to 50 and 25 wtt settings. While it comes stock with four 6L6 tubes, the amp can take 6L6, EL34, or 5881 power tubes. Three AX7 tubes drive the preamp section. The amp features a shared EQ section with controls for bass, mid, treble, and presence along with a master reverb control. A master volume with switchable boost is included as is a five band graphic EQ that can be assigned to either the clean or lead channel.
