Oh my god, I felt like a little kid when i saw the mailman walk up to my house with a big box that read "Carvin" on the side. I wanted to jump around and scream so badly (well, i was on the inside)
Anywho, one signature later... I was and AM officially the owner of a Carvin V3

PICS of my new baby (and happy-go-lucky me):


















What the huge bummer is though... is that the Avatar cabinet I ordered still hasn't come in just yet, so I can't take this baby for a full drive until it arrives.

but yes, I had to be another one of those guys who posts about their new amp, you'd do the same too if you had as awesome of an amp as this arrive at your door

HAHA!!! ^^
i didnt even touch the EQ when i took those pictures, I just pulled it out of the box and started snapping away :P

I need my mids for my playing anyways

Hoorah for middage. Got my mids dimed tbh.

Congrats on the stell4r purchase.

I hate waiting for stuff to arrive. It just annoys me. Im sure it annoys you aswell

Congrats, but that last photo made me choke on my tea!


I can has tea?

And sweet amp!
#13
very nice. I was thinking of getting once in the not-too-distant past. except the overdrive was lacking for a metal tone without a fair amount of boost.

but the heads are ridiculously well built and the V3 is arguably the most versatile amp head you can buy for $1000.

rawk on, comrad.

I was going to rip you a new one for having zero mids before you posted this. Congratulations on the purchase, and be sure to test each channel extensively and report back! The V3 is one of the amps I've kinda had my eye on but cannot test . . .

Crazy Europeans. Coffe and donuts is where its at . Congrats on the amp though. I think I'm going to order one sometime this summer but I might custom order mine with red or blue tolex just to be different.
