NAMM 2018: Carvin X1

Carvin Amps and Audio is releasing the brand-new X1 All Tube Guitar Preamp Pedal
Publish date:

The X1 brings back the characteristics of the X100B tone and controls in a new all tube pedal design. The wide range tone controls of the BASS, MID, TREBLE and PRESENCE use the original circuits of the X100B amplifier.

Real 12AX7 Tubes - Reproducing the true X100B tone circuits from 12AX7 tubes. Four gain stages create the X100B lead channel sustain.

1 Watt Power Output - The 1 Watt internal amplifier allows you to connect a guitar cab directly to the X1 pedal.

Effects Loop - Gives you the ability to patch effects right into the pedal and can be controlled by the LOOP switch on the pedal.

Cabinet Voiced Output - Active cabinet voicing emulates the response of a 2x12 or 4x12 guitar cabinet.

Flexibility - The X1 can be used as a stomp box, go direct into the mixing board, plug your headphones in to practice, or use it to drive your favorite power amp.
