Hi, I just bought a carvin v3 head off this scumbag punk and this thing is turning out to be a complete nightmare for me. After reading all the great reviews on harmony central and around the web, my curiousity got the best of me and I gave in, $600 later and a massive headache, I completley regret my purchase. I actually played my first gig with amp last night and the 1st overdrive channel completly blew out and sounded clean with a ****load of static and popping. After a terrible performance I brought my guitar to a tube amp repair specialist and it turns out that one of my preamp tubes completley blew. i believe it was the one in the v1 spot, so I replaced it with a jj 12ax7 preamp tube, and now the channel has a crap load of feedback and hissing when you turn the drive up past a quarter!! Its now completley unplayable and obnoxious on any channel but clean. Should I change the v2 preamp tube as well or is this static loud hissing noise normal for this amp. I have heard clips on youtube and it seems everyone elses amp except for mine sound amazing. Can someone please help figure out whats wrong with this amp??????
Ps. I just spent $50 dollars on a channel footswitch pedal for carvin and will probably never use it if I get a nasty sound like that on my overdrive channels, Instead I will just use my metal master on clean. Also I am playing a gig friday night , so I really need you two cents!!!!!!!!!, Thanks so much
