Carvin X100B

Postby Calxplorer » Fri May 12, 2017 2:16 pm

My search for one of these bad boyz came to end....wanted the grey carpet series from the early 90s with hot rod tuners and boost. Although I can't say I'm displeased with this one given this was built just before those. This particular model is from 88' and it came with the original channel pedal. I'm sure you all can recognize and appreciate this beast :twisted:

Still getting acquainted with it. Sounds nice and thick just the mids are a bit high for me.

Honestly, it's hard to tell. I'm still messing with the EQ adjustments. The cleans are just on another level, super bright and plenty of pop and I was using a Fender prior so that says a lot. It has the gain you just gotta get to where it's not lost in the bottom end, which is why I got it anyways to have a thick bottom and bright tones.
