Looking to buy a Carvin Legacy, never played one. Can anyone describe the tone?
Since Carvin only sells direct, and no one I know has a Legacy I or II, I have no way of playing one, without purchasing it. I was hoping that someone can shed some light on what to expect besides a god-like clean channel.
What attracted me to the Legacy II is the fact that a boogie was too much distortion for me, didn't feel smooth enough, and to say the least, the clean was atrocious. A HUGE factor is that the Legacy II has a true master volume control, that doesn't effect the tone or saturation of the tone, when lowering the volume. Need I say more lol? The boogie's have to be quite loud to achieve that great crunch, but I found myself not playing them as much, as I would not play before 11am, and after 9pm, as a courtesy to my neighbors, who aren't very close, but definitely could hear it, as my friends heard it from the street.
Thanks for all your input guys!
