Alright, I'm a Carvin guy. My first tube amp was a XV212 combo. Great amp. The guy I sold it to bought another just like it for his son. I had a few bad electric guitars, but the DC135 changed me. Great guitar and even though I have some high end guitars, the Carvin still gets out.
I have an old Carvin Quad X pre with a newer TC100 EL34 100W power amp. I also have the best bang for the buck I've found, Vintage 16. Does everything. I also have a vocal monitor.
Just good ride with a great company
