Carvin is very underrated in my opinion. They build very good quality made in the USA guitars and amplifiers that are pretty budget friendly for the most part but have a great tone and a lot of versatility. This is a nice little combo and features two channels one with the clean and crunch channel. You get four EL84 matched power tubes as well as for 12aX7 preamp tubes. You also get a nice 12 inch speaker built by Carvin that really balances out this amplifier.

This is a very versatile amplifier that can get you a lot of great quality sounds at very inexpensive price. The crunch channel is a nice juicy tone that is very involved in the blues tone of rock. So basically anything from clean and blues, country to classic rock this amplifier is going to meet those needs very well. Has a nice built-in effects loop and a foot switch to allow you to jump from channel to channel. It also has a speaker output connection in the back that allows you to hook up to a different speaker cabinet if you're not into the 1x12 cabinet. This has a lot of versatility and overall a great clean and a great overdrive channel.


At new you can find amps for right around $600 which is a great price from made in the USA all tube combo amplifier. This is a great price and anyone who is looking to get a good solid clean tone and fantastic overdrive tone. I like this amp for clean and blues and it meet those needs very well.
