If you're talking about the X100B series amps that they are about to reissue, they are supposedly great. I remember reading that Frank Zappa said they had the best cleans he had ever heard, and Vai used them in his early days. His song "blue powder" was recorded with one.

playing by yourself is like masturbating, sure it feels great, but it's nothing compared to the real deal.

I've never had the chance to play one. As a matter of fact I've only ever seen one of them.
Youtube has some decent clips sometimes.

I used to own one (half stack) back in the late 80's. I never liked it that much. It wasn't awful for $900 1986 dollars.

here's me playing it - - you can laugh if you want I don't mind

the clean channel is LOUD as ****. The distortion channel is loud but was weak compared to a Marshall.

I think they're trying to push the vintage angle and the fact that Zappa and Vai had them. I have a buddy that has some serious gear. He owned a the same deal as me (eventually had a full stack). His cabs had Celestions mine had some other less expensive kind and my stack always sounded better than his for some unknown reason. Do you think he uses a Carvin now? No ****ing way. He's got Bogner, Mesa and Marshall. Carvins are pretty weak in my opinion, but they're usable. Just when you go over your buddy's place and he's got a nice Marshal or Mesa and you go home you're not going to want to play your Carvin hahaha. I've been there and it sucks.

They already did re release them. Check out Carvins site. They go for pretty cheap on ebay nowadays but I think now that the new ones are out the older ones will go up in value.
