    Carvin MTS3200 Head - "Great All-Around Tube Amp"

    01/17/15

    I bought this preamp and amp (T-100) as a pair in April, 1994 (I think). The T-100 stb during a rehearsal. The Quad X has remained a highly-valued part of my rack simply for the sounds it brings to the table. Channel 1 is a twangy Fender Tweed…
