    Im in the market for a new amp and head or maybe just a combo, I want to hear opinions from carvin users or players that have tried out a carvin amp.

    I almost forgot to add that I know they dont give much boost to your volume sometimes so I'd like to know if any carvin users us any effect pedals to help with that(volume pedals etc) thanks:)

    I got a Carvin DCM2000 poweramp. Clean 2000 watts of power. Nothing wrong with it, nothing incredible. It does the job and that's all a poweramp should be doing.

    I recommend you go the preamp/poweramp route only for its ease of upgradability and repair.
