Anyone have experience with these amps, even Carvin amps in general? They seem awesome (espescially for the price!), and reviews are very good, but besides the Legacy, their amps seem pretty unknown. I'm looking for a versatile, metal-oriented amp and I'm very interested. The other amps I'm considering are the Laney VH100R (if I can get my hands on one over here) and the Peavey JSX. If you can't tell, I'm on a pretty strict budget .

So, opinions? And here's a link: http://www.carvin.com/products/single.php?ItemNumber=V3&CID=V3A

There's a demo of it up on youtube. Go check that out, might help.

No. No it is not "Cravin".

C - A - R - V - I -N

EDIT: ah, cool demo. Thanks.
EDIT NUMBAH 2: That shouldn't count as a demo! It was just some dude shredding his ass off for 2 minutes.

No problem, you can read Harmony-Central reviews as well, but remember that those are very opnionated, and they account for a very small portion people with the amp.

Already read those, but I still feel like knowing what UG thinks of the amp.

Never tried 1, I owned a Laney TT50 til the house got robbed and insurance money changed my rig. Apparantly the VH100 is supposed to be similar but with better bass. It was an amp that passable at everything for a tube amp. One of those good at everything, not great at anything kinda things. I'd recommend it to you, but unless you're in UK it might be a little pricey. Check ebay to see if you can grab a discount

I'm in Montreal, so yeah, it's pretty doubtful I can get a Laney at a decent price. Unless I find a used one of course.

There are two videos, one involves him showing off different settings on each of the channels.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

My dad owns the MTS3200 combo, and its pretty kick ass. Its not a metal amp, but its a good piece of gear.

Carvin in general is usually a good product. If you have a local Carvin (Like Im lucky enough to have in Hollywood), walk in and talk to them about what your looking for with your tone and such. Usually they have nice people working in there, so they would love to answer your questions.

Good luck with your buy.
