WTB Carvin Straight Cabinet
« on: Time Format »

I’m looking for a Carvin Straight cab for my X100B Pre 1988 with the lipstick logo and expanded metal grill, Im also looking for a straight Carvin 412V-30 for the V3 series.

I had a 4x12 with that logo and grill, it was a beast, but it served me very well. I put a wall inside and made it a true stereo cab....which also made it even heavier - haha

Best of luck on your search. I'm hunting for a 2x12 myself, but I may just build one to my liking

Current Live Rig (wait 10 min., it'll change): Peavey Classic 20mh head into the matching 1x12 speaker cab, using my Boss MS3 via 4CM. Sometimes, I use a Hughes & Kettner Switchblade 50 with the MS3.
Current Rack rig: ADA MP-1 Classic into Boss GX700, running direct in the board. Also have the MP-2 in a 4u rack w/another GX700 and the MicroTube 200 running into two Yamaha 1x12 cabs.

And unfortunately, Carvin seems to have gone the way of the dodo, which is a real bummer, they made some pretty cool bits and pieces.  I remember they were one of the first amp makers to use switching power supplies, a 1200w power amp that you could pick up with you little finger, back then the PA amps we were using weighed more than Dante's car (an old reference lol).
