Legacy 4 info wanted

So I'm in the market for a new amp and I am looking to see if anyone has any info about the legacy 4. When will it be out? Street price? Design changes? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Ive heard a few rumors but nothing I could confirm. Do any of you currently use and enjoy the legacy 3?

Re: Legacy 4 info wanted

I didn't think there was even been rumor of a legacy 4 being an actual thing. Vai still sticks to the legacy 1 primarily, while occasionally playing the 3. The 3 is literally a shrunken version of the 1, with a master volume, 3rd channel, variable output switch, and digital reverb instead of spring. I have a legacy 3 and its great. It fixes the short comings (to the average player) of the original legacy, without the tonal changes of the legacy 2. The 3 pretty much exists only for the fans, because the issues don't matter to Vai. The L3 is smaller and lighter, but he has roadies. You can get the same/similar tones at different volumes on the L3, where as Vai can/does play cranked in almost any venue. You'll notice he's only ever using the L3 during small sessions, where he needs his tone at lower volumes. The only way a L4 makes sense is if they are making a smaller cheaper sub-15 watt version, or a combo version of the L3. The L3 is already capable of 15w, 50w, and 100w output along with a master volume control. A L3 combo with the spring reverb unit returned would be stellar, as the digital reverb isn't as nice sounding.

Looks like something is coming soon.

Check Carvin's facebook page latest video.

I was thinking of getting a Legacy 3 soon. I guess Ill wait and keep playing with my little practice app.

Yeah, I was hoping it was a Legacy 4. I don't have a nice amp yet, just a little Orange Crush 12w combo. I guess I will get a Legacy 3, the price in the US currently is very nice, I thought that the price drop was related to a new Legacy coming soon.
