Carvin is a rarity amongst most music equipment companies in that they sell all of their gear (most of which is made in the USA) direct to the consumer, eliminating the middle man and passing the savings onto the customer. Not only do they make high quality guitars and basses, their guitar amplifiers are highly respected by professionals and gear aficionados.
One of Carvin’s most popular models is the X-100B, which is in production again after an absence of several years. Carvin also makes the Legacy line of amplifiers for Steve Vai and has become highly regarded amongst rock and metal players. Recently, Carvin has made a name for themselves with the V3 series of amps, especially the V3M micro series.
