Carvin enters the mini amp arena...

And kills it! This is arguably the most flexible and extras loaded lunchbox out there. It has nearly everything the full size V3 has at half the size and power.

This vs. the Bugera Trirec......hmmmm.

There are just too many cool amps out there for my best interests. This could break me from my Classic 20.

That thing looks sweet. Here's to hoping for a good price on it...

Re: Carvin enters the mini amp arena...

So with 4 EL84s - will probably have less bottom than EL34s right and more saturation in the power section ?

Looks VERY cool, but I would guess it isn't going to be that cheap compared to the full-sized V3.

Re: Carvin enters the mini amp arena...

The Tone King demos it. Actually sounds pretty awesome.

Yeah the price could be scary, especially by Carvin standards. I usually expect their stuff to be pretty reasonable, this one might be more than I'm thinking comparing it to other small heads out there. I'm betting somewhere between $600 and $800. If it comes in under $750 actually, I'll be amazed.
