Carvin V3M Amp Head
Includes FREE Carvin FS44L foot switch which we will add to your order.
Carvin is very excited to announce our newest V3 Series 3-channel tube amp, the V3M micro head. In recent years, we’ve received many requests from our customers to jump into the micro amp market, and we’re pleased to respond with this great sounding new amp. The V3M amp was a huge hit at the 2011 NAMM Show, with players raving about the amazing sound this new amp produces. The small size and selectable power output makes the V3M ideal for dorms, apartments, as well as live performances and recording when mic’d or connected directly to the board.
The 50 watt V3M amp is the musician’s dream, delivering awesome power with incredible tone including lush reverb. Nearly half the size of the V3L 100w head, the V3M offers nearly the same features. Its powerful 50w output easily drives a 4 X 12 half stack while the 7 or 22 watt setting delivers sweet saturation at low levels.
The all tube channels can be engaged with your footswitch for normal "Pristine Clean" for shimmering highs and deep bass. Switch the channel to classic rock with the deepest metal crunch or continuous sustain. Or, switch to another channel for rich harmonics infused from the ‘Soak’ control for rich Jazz or country blues. Each channel incorporates its own character drive switches – ‘Bright to Soak’ and ‘Thick’ to ‘Intense’ with EQ switches expanding the tone. Never before has there been so much tone and power from a micro series.
