Well today someone walked up to the door and handed me a package!
Of course, I was anxious to know what was inside, so I thought I'd open it


...The mystery box!


Could it be.. ...My bulk order of salt 'n pepper crackers?!



... NO!



It's a Carvin Quad X-Amp.. preamp!



It's my first preamp to go with my 9200, about time too, had the marshall since april :P
It's lovely, never thought it'd be this much louder than going through my digitech pedal though, it got way loud!
Had a look at the tubes, they're all unmarked, except for number 2, 3 and 4, which are sovteks (12ax7's)

Enough talk, MOAR PICTURES!









So now this is my current rig:



And a family shot!



The cab's a self built thing, had some bumps along the way... That's why the grille cloth frame doesn't quite fit :P

Clips:
[coverass]So I've got some clips up, admittedly my playing is ****ty and I didn't put much effort in to it, but I guess you still get to hear the preamp kinda[/coverass]
I did one clip of each channel, with maybe like a couple different sounds and on channel 3 and 4 I go through the gain range quickly. Then theres one more clip of me butchering that little solo bit from "to live is to die".
All of this was recorded like "guitar -> preamp -> pc" and using the cab sim on the preamp.
I can assure you these clips do NOT do it justice xD

90+USD to change preamps tubes I always wanted to try out some Cavin stuff but it never been popular in my area. I must admit that looks to be an epic preamp, HNAD

Congratulations. It's cool to see a different kind of NGD.

+1 the "OMGIGOTZABLACKSTARHT-5/PRACTICEAMP" NADS are boring as sin.

HNAD man.

And I swear, I had a dream about the 9200 a few days ago. But before that I have never seen one. Yet in my dream it looks identical to the real life one. Who knows, maybe I saw it somewhere.

Woah...9 preamp tubes, a spring reverb tank...a metric buttload of electronics...

I'm impressed. More shocked by how they fit 9 preamp tubes AND the spring reverb tank all in there...but still.

What a coincidence, I was just at someone's house who has that preamp and the marshall 9200.

Because I bend in such an unorthodox fashion; the notes kinda slide up and slide down...
