RE: Carvin Legacy VL212

Just picked up a like new Carvin Legacy I VL212 with JJ Eurotubes - $350

This amp is heavy but I think it's all the Vai tone and Ju-Ju it contains

; )

All kidding aside - I'm loving this amp. My JS1200CA sounds incredible and very much looking forward to playing my JEM70V SFG though it when it arrives.

Re: Carvin Legacy VL212

These amps are incredible honestly for the price thats a steal if theres nothing wrong with it!, might not be a bad idea to have a tech once over it as i have a very early model vl212 that developed some real issues over time, actually was gonna start a thread for that lol

but congrats man its loud sonofa u know what but when u get it to that volume and here the thick gooy tone its so worth finding a place to live that allows you the comfort of cranking it a bit XD

I will say for a tip, the amp is very bass heavy, i dont say that not as a bad thing but i find myself setting the bass control much lower than i would on other amps. another fun thing i do with the knobs is turn the presence way down on the lead channel but crank the treble then u get awesome 80's style harmonic rich guitar tone

have fun!
