Carvin Announces V3M Micro Head and Combo Amps

The V3M head and VM3C combo takes many of the features of the popular V3L head, and puts them in a small package.

San Diego, CA (January 29, 2011) -- Carvin has announced their newest V3 Series 3-channel tube amps, the V3M Micro Head and V3MC Micro Combo.

The V3M head takes many of the features of the popular V3L head, and puts them in a small package. 3 channels offer flexibility, and a 7W/22W/50W power selector allows for overdriven crunch at lower volumes. The amp also has built-in digital reverb. Like the V3L, the V3M micro head includes internal LED backlighting, selectable in red or blue. The 19 pound V3M has an optional 4RU rack mount bracket and an optional carry bag for easy transport. Direct price: $599 after instant rebate.

V3M112 Combo
Also available is the new V3MC combo. This 1x12 micro combo amp is designed for apartments, dorms, recording or even playing live when mic'd or connected directly to the board. The V3MC combo also has adjustable power and weighs only 36 pounds. The V3MC is available in a variety of vinyl colors, including Python Snakeskin, Vintage Tweed, White Bronco, Red Jungle Bark and more. Direct price: $799.

In addition, Carvin is offering a selection of V3M Micro Stacks based on the V3M head. The V3M112 combines the V3M head with the new 112V 1x12 cabinet and the V3M212 uses the new 212V 2x12 cabinet. Both the 112V and 212V are designed to be used in a open-back or closed-back configuration. The V3M412 takes the V3M head and combines it with the popular 412VT slant-front cabinet.

The V3M and V3MC will begin shipping March 30, and Carvin is currently offering sale prices on preorders.
