So, they are going to go entirely into pedals and other more advanced items? I donít get it.

Well, going into pedals will make them quite a bit more nimble in the long run.

Now I can have an X-amp that I can run into any type of amp.

I have an X100 IV. Why do I want this??? Confused
$450 and no onboard reverb (yeah, I know its a pedal) tamps that GAS down a smidge.
(Altho, if it had rvb, it'd need those assignable switches, + another f/s on the unit to turn it on/off. Cluttered.)

Also, it appears they've done away with anything woodwork-related; cabs, amps, etc. So no factory / warehouse space for all that. keeping it smaller / simpler.

I guess everyone knows it is forbidden to even mention the name Carvin in a post split conversation at Kiesel guitars. They must hate their history. I have a negative interest in Kiesel guitars.

I had never heard that rule until someone mentioned it. really stupid, and really indicative of the level of maturity of the PTB at Kiesel Guitars.

During the demo I distinctly heard him say that the new pedal includes a T.C. Electronics Reverb system. I use a T.C. Electronics "G system" with my V-3 and LOVE the quality of the effects it produces.

And then I remember hearing him use it in the demo.

Personally I'm over loaded with Carvin amps myself ... but that doesn't mean I'm not glad to see them clawing their way back into business.

In order to stay relevant in this music world you must evolve. Whether your a performer OR a company. Looks like Carvin may have figured that out after all.


I thought this was the direction they shouild have taken last year when they announced they were closing up. Maybe they read my posts after all. Now, I can't wait to see what they come up with next.

HERE'S TO ANOTHER 70 YEARS OF CARVIN. MAY THEY STAY RELEVANT.

Dreamer? Maybe ...

...But in a few years I can see the V-3 pedal that carries the V-3 circuits ... And maybe even the VT-1 pedal that carries the Vintage series circuits. (Might be redundant with the X-1 release)
They already had the Vai pedal and now the X100B pedal.

Plus they obviously have a hook up with T.C. Electronics.

Ooops ... My mistake. I guess I got confused when he said he had a T.C. Electrionics Reverb "INSIDE OF IT". He meant inside the effects loop.

I guess I shouldn't have spun that last one up.

Seriously! I don't know what a "post split" conversation is... Does that mean you can still mention it otherwise?

Is there still a "Carvinite" forum for "Carvinite" gatherings or has that been banned too? Confused

Wanzik, when I got an e-mail from the "new" Carvin I posted it on the Kiesel guitars website. Another forum member told me that mention of Carvin after the split was not allowed, and that my post would probably be deleted. There is something I find particularly slimy about people who hate their past and the people who got them to where they are. Obviously I don't know the inside story.

OH! Ok. I was thinking "post" like a "post" on a message board. I get it now. Duh!

Yes, that is slimy.

Jeff`s maturity level along with him lying about being able to still get the Carvin logo on the old designs has kept me from ordering another Carvin. It`s a double whammy for me. I would probably buy at least 2-3 more if he changes his attitude.

Yup, I saw that post, and there are stickies in some sections of the Kiesel forum that make mention of removing topics about Carvin Audio ("the other company") and I believe there was a mention of insta-banning someone without warning because of it. This came about after the somewhat recent 22 Pole pickup thread that was also deleted because it had some immaturity in it, though much of it earnestly called out that they shouldn't simply off their old pickup designs.

They made it relatively clear about their disconnection with the brand. It's sad, and as the prices keep going up (along with eye-candy options) I've basically been priced out of any new Kiesel beyond a kit build (disposable income is a luxury). I find that annoying, and it basically removes the working musician from their ranks, which is exactly the type of musician who floated the company for decades. Of course, none of the typical economic changes help prices out, and that's a much larger issue.

I suppose the Carvin Tube amp is still dead?

Are you speaking of a literal amp model, or of the company?

Carvin Audio (the company took that name post split) closed and reopened its doors, but only to sell pedals. Thus far they have the VLD1 and X1 preamp pedals, which are tube-based preamp recreations of the Legacy and X100b amps. I'm waiting to see a V3 or Vintage series based one come out.

Carvin itself is not entirely dead, not really at all, but they have certainly moved away from their previous incarnation, kind of on both ends, considering most of the old guitar models are now gone, reformed, and I believe even 25" scale length is being replaced by the 25.5" length.

I don't think the 25 scale is going away. It just seems that almost all of the new designs are bolt-on, and not set neck. the SCB6, CT6, and CS6 all are still 25 scale, and the SCB6 is definitely a Jeff Kiesel era beveled design.

The Semi Hollow CTs are 25, and so are the other semi hollow designs. These are more "classic" looking. The new designs are less so, and more likely to be marketed to the down-tuning crowd, who will appreciate the extra half inch scale length.
