Question Carvin Legacy II VL2212 Amp


I've been looking into a new amp and this one caught my eye. I like the idea that it can switch between 25, 50, and 100 watts. I play a lot of classic rock stuff: Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Poison, Led Zeppelin, Guns N Roses, etc. My main guitar is a Gibson Firebird Studio. Would this be a good amp for me? Thanks.

The carvin legacy is really a lead guitar amp, it is very middy and in your face. It might do Van Halen and Gunners but you would probably need an eq and overdrive pedal to give you versatility. I didn't get a chance to wind it up a bit so it might change when cranked. The clean channel is one of the best i have heard though, really awesome, nice tight deep and powerful clean.

yeah, great amp but you will need a few pedals to pull off that stuff, gnr and van halen no prob, clean channel is great too so thats a bonus and it takes pedals well
