2011: Year of the Micro – Carvin V3M vs Ibanez TSA15H

Ibanez TUBESCREAMER is one of the best overdrive pedals ever produced. The TSA15H tube amp features a true TUBESCREAMER circuit, and the TSA112C speaker cabinet is designed to match the TSA15H, featuring the popular CELESTION Seventy 80 speaker. Ibanez TUBESCREAMER amps can create natural clean sounds, heavy crunch tones, and even warm smooth overdrive tones with the modified TS9 circuit built right into the amp.

Carvin V3M head takes many of the features of the popular V3L head, and puts them in a small package. 3 channels offer flexibility, and a 7W/22W/50W power selector allows for overdriven crunch at lower volumes. The amp also has built-in digital reverb. Like the V3L, the V3M micro head includes internal LED backlighting, selectable in red or blue. The 19 pound V3M has an optional 4RU rack mount bracket and an optional carry bag for easy transport […]

This amp will probably sound like a beast, and being only a 15-watt amp, you’re going to be able to rip it up wherever you are. Though, considering its class A wattage, this thing might be louder than you’d think. […]
