I'm gonna buy an x100b carvin. I can get a series 2 or 3 for roughly the same price.
This link displays both of their tones. You tell me which is better. All of the knob eqs are on five, the only thing on 10 is the gain, the graphic eq is set with the mid at 0 and the rest in a V pattern. I will use high output pickups when I get it, and playing hard rock/ classic metal, and I like clear distortion. the guy in the vid is using emg-hz pickups. Take a look.

Both have 3 12ax7 and 4 el34s
which is better for my style?
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!
