He impressed Zappa with his accurate transcriptions of Zappa’s works and his ability to play the parts with such precision. Eventually, Vai developed into a solid solo artist. His first release was a soft vinyl “Soundpage” insert record in an issue of Guitar Player magazine, which featured Vai’s “The Attitude Song.” His first (and self-produced) EP, Flex-able (Akashic), was released in 1984. Vai’s style and finesse are admired and imitated, setting new limits for what’s considered over-the-top. Later, his seven-string signature models were introduced and today the seven-string guitar is a strong influence on many of the most popular bands around, including Korn, Limp Bizkit, and Fear Factory. Now Carvin is showing its respect for Vai by building a signature model amp, the Legacy. The VL212 has the same features as the original 100-watt VL100 Legacy head, equipped from the factory with four EL34 power tubes and five 12AX7A preamp tubes. However, the Legacy can be set up for use with either 5881s, 6L6GCs or EL34s (when switching tube types, take the amp to a qualified technician). A pushbutton on the front panel changes channels and red LEDs indicate which is active. An optional FS22 footswitch selects channels and activates the reverb.The Clean channel has Bass, Mid, and Treble tone controls, a Presence switch (functions more like a bright switch on other amps, rather than a rotary Presence control knob), and a master Volume control. Additionally, there’s a master Reverb control which regulates the intensity of the reverb effect for both channels. The amplifier section can be used with the built-in speakers or with an extension cabinet (with or without the built-in speakers) or used with up to two external cabinets. A variety of matching 4 X 12 and 2 X 12 cabs are available. The amp’s cabinet has several options, too. For more punch, keep the back closed and for looser sounds, leave the back of the amp open.

If you have the back open or half-open, it can be mic’ed for different effects in the mix. The Legacy possesses prevalent qualities of both Marshall and Fender sounds. The Lead channel is reminiscent of a hotrodded old Marshall and the sounds produced by the Clean channel are along the lines of a well-tuned old Fender. And whether it’s set for dirty or clean, subtle differences can be heard at each increment as the amp’s controls are adjusted. This allows for maximum fine-tuning of the amp to shape the sound. We can also get an idea of how the amp responds with one of Vai’s personal guitars. The Legacy proves itself a versatile workhorse capable of handling just about any gig. In situations with each type of guitar and trying out a range of rock and blues styles, the Legacy receives high marks. For those classic-type clean or overdriven sounds with the Strat or Les Paul, the Legacy produces smooth, sweet highs, and tight bottom end. As on some of the other Carvin amps I’d tested over the years, the Legacy’s clean sounds are very impressive, delivering a rich tone that responds well to pick dynamics and subtle differences in fretting-hand touch and technique. The Lead channel provides a powerful, chunky tone with excellent sustain and impressive low-end throw for a combo. The Legacy offers excellent sustain for soloing and a fat, solid sound for rhythm. An overdrive pedal can be used to enhance the sound of the amp’s natural gain and alter the distortion characteristics to achieve a particular tone. Then, to further craft the sound, the amp’s back panel sections can be removed or secured for looser or tighter speaker response. Needless to say, Carvin has provided a good variety of options to accommodate the needs of most players. Now that mailorder and buying over the internet have become popular, Carvin’s direct sales approach is becoming more common.

The company offers a 10-day trial period with a money-back guarantee (customer pays shipping, which is not refundable). And all Carvin instruments and amps carry a one-year warranty. If you’re in the market for one amp that can do it all, the Legacy might provide everything you’re looking for at a very fair price. It’s well worth some investigation.

No trans-dimensional quantum drive. Not even a monkey grip. Steve Vai designed this, didn’t he. Following countless months of comparison tests on tubes, speakers, and circuitry, the exhausted amp designers were finally released from Steve’s aural vivisection, and this, indeed, is his Legacy. Steve Vai also designed the exterior of the Legacy VL212 combo, although his involvement is only evident in the logo’s subtle hieroglyph. Otherwise, this is a very serious-looking and intelligently designed amp, complete with black Tolex, seven-ply popular cab, metal corner protectors and a kick-proof grill. Like the exterior, the guts of the VL212 are refreshingly simple and gimmick-free.

The all-tube, two-channel design pumps out 100 watts from its quartet of EL34 power tubes, and if you play in small venues, a half-power switch on the rear panel allows the amp to run at 50 watts or just two EL34s. Another switch can re-bias the amp to accept 5881 or 6L6GC tubes in the power section, should you prefer a grittier tone. The pre-amp stage uses a total of five 12AX7 tubes, one of which drives and adds warmth to the Carvin long-tail reverb. This collection of tubes provides the thermionic magic for the clean and lead channels. Both channels have the usual treble, mid, bass and volume controls, while the lead channel boasts a drive control, the VL212 uses a rotary control on the lead channel and a presence switch on the clean. This switch is designed to add clarity to the highest guitar harmonics (8-10kHz), which translates as a does of extra sparkle when single-coil pickups are used through this channel. The Legacy’s arsenal continues with a master reverb control, an effects loop, footswitch socket for the optional FS22 footswitch and speaker extension sockets with impedance selector on the rear panel. It’s everything a modern guitarist could need, without mode-switch overkill. Does it sound like Steve Vai in a box. To say so would be to sell the Legacy short. The tone-obsessed player has certainly left his indelible thumbprint upon the tones of the VL212, but this would please any player seeking powerful, complex sounds. One noticeable characteristic is the stupendous bass response from the closed-back cab. Clean sounds are exceptionally responsive and leap with dynamics, while dirty sounds are an absolute chunkfest. Another characteristic appears in the overall sound, which is precisely balanced across the spectrum and avoids the midrange swampland found in many vintage-style amps. This high-resolution tone is modern without being clinical, with plenty of tubular warmth behind the clarity, and bristling harmonics.

Cleans sounds are rounded, articulate and powerful, with more headroom than Michael Jordan. The lead channel is nothing short of phenomenal, with spatial overdrives, bone-splitting crunch and the sort of vocal lead tones for which Vai is famous. Setting 3 to 6 on the drive control offer some of the optimum distortions, and settings 6 to 8 provide enough blistering gain to make any distortion stomp-box unnecessary. Go beyond 8, and you may not come back. These distortions are also designed to clean up efficiently with a guitar’s volume control to deliver superb fat and honky, semi-clean tones. THE END LINE The Carvin VL212 certainly delivers a range of inspiring and kinetic tones, along with some distinctive flavors of its very own (hear it for yourself at Carvin’s website ). Its macho exterior would probably win in a fight with a roadie, and Carvin’s factory -direct selling policy keeps the price within the grasp of mortals.

Does just 2 of the 4 tubes light up. Manual doesn’t specify that. I emailed carvin for a week. The person I spoke to said the only information they have is the manual. Crazy smh Charlie says: July 9, 2020 at 7:46 pm It’s hard to say without looking at it.

I’m guessing all 4 should. Rob Leveck says: July 10, 2020 at 5:54 pm Manual says 2 tubes 50 Watt 4 tubes 100 Watt but doesn’t say if they all light up and or maybe 2 are dimmer on 50 Watt. No attenuator built in. I heard those are bad. Burn up tubes and power source. But Idk. Charlie says: July 12, 2020 at 11:40 pm Do all 4 light up. If you’re using a 100 watts, all 4 should light up.

I got my first guitar for x-mas when I was 11 years old. It was an usual 80's Peavey T-15 that had an amplifier built into the hard case.My inspiration for guitar is about the actual instrument in my hands; being able to shape my own unique tones, setting-up my equipment, modding, and inventing new sounds, aka Eddie Van Halen using an electric drill to make a lunatic sound. This is one awesome and loud 3-channel guitar amplifier with warm punchy cleans and an amazing dirty channel that will do everything from blues breakup to heavy distortion with infinite sustain. Awesome lush reverb that does not mess with your tone that is assignable to each or the 3-channels(each channel remembers if you want reverb on it) 100. 50 or 15 watt power settings allow you to get great fat tone at any volume.

Carvin has been building guitar amplifiers since 1949. They have been used by top professionals like; Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Craig Chaquico, Allan Holdsworth, Larry Carlton, Chet Atkins and other great musicians. Spend time with your new combo and get to know it’s many sounds. Just turn the SELECT control to any of the 16 positions and increase the LEVEL control to the desired mix volume, and enjoy the crisp, lush sound of DSP, without the complications of an external processor. Special mud-cut- ting circuits eliminate the unwanted sounds in the 700 Hz range which normally take away the tone definition of your instrument.

You will also take notice of the channels PRESENCE control which adds acoustic voicing to your instrument. This control boosts only the guitars very highest harmonics which are in the 10k Hz range instead of the normal 3K Hz of a bright switch. This control may not seem very effective, but it adds a glassy tone to your sound. Take full advantage by setting them where they sound best. These controls will not affect or color your sound when set at extreme settings, nor do they interact with each other. The frequency of the bass control is set at 100 Hz while the mid control is set at 1.5 kHz. The treble control is set high, at 8k Hz giving the SX it’s dynamic highs. Presence is set to give the amp that extra “edge”, assuring that you can make yourself heard in the mix. Another filter rolls off extreme lows preventing premature overloading of the speaker at higher volumes. It’s no small feat to please me in that respect; remember I’ve spent a lot of my adult life designing fuzzes to get the sound I want, since conventional fuzzes sound too rough for my tastes. Carvin’s distortion circuit though is exceptional. A lot of folks claim to give a tube sound; frankly, the Carvin sounds better than a lot of the tube circuits I’ve used - it’s almost like the SX produces an idealized tube sound rather than a real tube sound”. One particularly impressive-sounding transistor job is Carvin’s SX100, which also sports an impressive price tag.The SX100 offers a surprising wallop of crunch. Using the Overdrive knob, a player can dial in how much gain they want and, believe us, there’s a lot in there. Turn that sucker up to 3 o’clock and you’ll get a nice, fat distortion—not that kind of crappy, paperthin distortion that you find on many transistor boxes—but a meaty crunch. Compare this fine overdrive with the amp’s surprisingly low price and you’ll see why we wanted to take a look at this small beast.

Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through openings. All other servicing should be referred to qualified service personnel.

What is the proper way to remove them. I tried simply pulling straight down on them, but they are wedged in there pretty tightly. There is a little metal cupling (if that's the right term) snug around the top of the tube. Should that be lossened or removed before pulling on the tube. It's kind of hard to get to that screw. Thanks, Russ I don't think you have to do anything with the couplings around the tube. If anyone has their owners manual handy then correct me if I'm wrong. Good luck Kevin It is recommended to turn the amp upside down to replace tubes.
