are these amps reliable? im worried about buying one since id probably have to send it off to the factory if something happened to it.

Carvin is solid. Made in San Diego I believe. I hear nothing but good things. I'm looking at a Nomad right now.

i was thinking of saving for a mesa, but the v3 seems so good for such a small price. almost too good...

ive also been wanting to do a little guitar project, and buying the v3 would leave me enough extra money to do that

I've heard nothing but good about V3's, and that they've improved their reliability in the past years. Getting one myself when I can get the money.

i know you want that V3 but just for giggles i would suggest looking into bugera amps, i know about the fuss, but i played one the other day, it was the 6202 and the one that looks like a jsx rip off. both awsome and the rip off one got really good mesa tones out of it but without the scooped sound coming out. it was pretty good and compared a V3 i would say its better and its cheaper

well if i can play one i might go for one. one problem though, NO ONE knows how reliable they are hhaahaha

Yes but did it have cleans as kick ass as the V3?

do it... Out of all the amps I have tested my favorites have been carvin ones. I was going to buy the V3 until I heard about the x100b series IV. And yes Carvin makes very reliable amps from what people tell me.

This guy? His cleans are kinda meh. I'm sure it would be way different if I were to actually try it and EQ it how I wanted but it sounds really brittle to my ear.

"Kinda worried, since earlier, about 2 hours earlier, he had forgotten to plug the speaker cable in."

V3 is only unreliable if the person using it is retarded.
