About the Carvin V3M amp:
The Carvin V3M amp was a huge hit at the 2011 NAMM Show, with players raving about the amazing sound and versatility. It was awarded Best of Show. The small size and selectable power output make the Carvin V3M ideal for use at home, as well as live performances and recording when mic’d or connected directly to the board.
The Carvin V3M is a 50-watt amp, delivering awesome power with incredible tone including lush reverb. Nearly half the size of the V3 100w head, the Carvin V3M offers nearly the same features. So its powerful 50w output easily drives a 4 X 12 half stack while the 7 or 22-watt setting delivers sweet saturation at low levels.
The Carvin V3 has all-tube channels which can be engaged with your footswitch for normal shimmering highs and deep bass. Switch the channel to classic rock with the deepest metal crunch or continuous sustain. Never before has there been so much tone and power from a micro-series.
So, if you’re looking for great sounding valves for Carvin V3M amplifier -you’ve certainly come to the best place.
