Carvin Introduces The V3212 Guitar Combo Amplifier

Carvin proudly introduces the V3212 Guitar Combo. Building on the success of Carvin’s V3 Guitar Head, the new V3212 comprises the same electronics, including the 100% tube signal path featuring Groove Tubes™, and incorporates dual 12-inch Celestion loudspeakers to form a guitar combo system with the power and sound quality to address a wide range of musical applications.

The new V3212 offers a 3-channel, all tube configuration with three drive modes per channel, with Channels 1 and 2 providing Center, Thick, and Intense modes, and Channel 3 providing Center, Bright, and Soak modes. No matter what sound the guitarist is looking for—from a classic, rich overdrive delivering lots of headroom to the most gain and sustain—it will be found with this amplifier. Combined with Carvin’s innovative EQX that enables one to toggle between standard and expanded EQ to open a wider frequency range for the treble and bass, the V3212 delivers the sound today’s guitarist demands. And with a rear panel switch that enables one to toggle between the amplifier’s two power settings of 100 watts or 50 watts, the V3212 makes it easy to overdrive the amp for still greater creative expression.

Featuring a dedicated Master Control section for volume, boost, bright, mid cut, deep, and Smart Loops™, the V3212 makes it easy to control the amplifier’s sound. The three channels each have dedicated control settings and the momentary channel select switch facilitates easy changes from one sound setting to another. Combined with Carvin’s Smart Loops, which remembers the effects loop settings for each channel, the V3212 provides unprecedented control.

The V3212’s rear panel is equally comprehensive, offering Line Out, Line Out Level, Cabinet Voicing (for simulating speaker cabinet response), Loop 1, Loop 2, plus MIDI In and Thru for easy control of all channels, volume boost, and Smart Loops. Additionally, the V3212 has provisions for footswitches (models FS22 / FS44), Output 1 and 2 (parallel outs for connecting two speaker cabinets), a Bias switch, plus the 100/50 watt power select switch.

Recognizing that guitarists have very strong opinions about the speakers they play through, the new V3212 is available in two configurations. The V3212 incorporates twin Celestion G12T-75 loudspeakers, while the V3212-30 uses twin Celestion Vintage 30 loudspeakers.

The new Carvin V3212 Guitar Combo is sold factory direct at $1,249.99 (V3212) and $1,269.99 (V3212-30). Both models are available now.
