please tell me your thoughts on this amp

i play iron Maiden, Megadeth type stuff. also i love 80's thrash and 80's metal.

would this amp be good for me?

also if you think any Marshall tube amp head is better, let me know

I'm not experienced with Carvin unfortunately - they are exceptionally hard to find in Europe - but they are supposedly excellent amps and sound very nice from the clips.

In my experience with the V3, it will easily do all the genres that you listed. If you want to spend a little less money i would look for a used Carvin X100B, and then get a good transparent overdrive, and you will be into extreme metal territory.
Gearz:
Squier classic vibe 50's strat, modded.
Dunlop 535q
Korg Pitchblack
Carvin X100B

I have a v3 its a very versatile amp and one of the best value pieces of gear you can get, but for 80s metal you are better with a marshall style amp (but get orange, blackstar, blackheart or crate palamino etc they are better alternatives)

the v3 coomes stock with el34 but is americam voiced. With a tube upgrade and the right settings i beleive you can get anything from this amp

I use eurotubes 6l6 for death metal and shred

my bud has one and its a pretty nice amp, its a little on the fuzzy side so i suggest getting an eq pedal. All in all great amps for the money

Stop making so many threads

The V3s are alright, too fizzy and muddy for my tastes. The 6100 would be a much better choice

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Because you keep making multiple threads asking the same exact question that's already been answered. It's against the forum rules, because it gets annoying. If you have a question, post it in the same thread instead of making another one just to change your question slightly and get the same answers.

No one can tell you what you're going to like the best, only steer you toward something they think would be better, or they liked better. In the end, it's your decision and you need to play the amps to decide.

Scooped?
Nope, no sig here.

You probably used the master control knob wrong. Some people dont realize that the master control for the mid actually controlls the SCOOP of the mids. So if you turn it up, you are actually lowering the mids. So the master mid has to be lower for higher mids.
