Carvin X100-B

I only discovered this problem recently. I can't get a clean tone out of my carvin x100-b. Even when on the clean channel with the presence turned all the way down it still sounds crunchy and not glassy clean.

Re: Carvin X100-B

Something is definitely wrong. I have the same head and the clean channel is crystal clear, one of the best I've ever heard. Did you pull out the volume knob? It should be in the "in' position.

I didn't pull it out. Idk, mines weird cuz it doesn't have clean and overdrive, it has the rhythm and lead channel. Maybe I have a different model?

Evolution in the neck and breed in the bridge. It sounds cleanish in the neck position. On my strat I have hot rails in middle and neck and a lil screaming demon in the bridge. I know they're all rly high output pickups but I didnt think it would make that much of a difference

+1 mine has push/pull on the volume. It goes from crystal clear to AC/DC on the clean channel.
