Sonic landscapes...

- Frank Gambale joins the ranks.

Well over two years in the making, Carvin is very happy to announce the unveiling of the new Frank Gambale signature series guitar preamp. Frank, a true master of his instrument, knows what he needs when he plugs in – Carvin has delivered, with complete tonal navigation over the sonic landscapes Mr. Gambale requires. This Tone Navigator™ will surely deliver anything your heart desires from full on shred to funky clean - with everything in between. Carvin is honored to work with Frank and include him in our list of signature series guitarists with Allan Holdsworth, Steve Vai and Craig Chaquico.

product spotlight
NEW! M-series bridge - Many Carvin guitar models are available with the new M-series tune-o-matic bridge. This bridge is set into a routed pocket on special heavy studs. The strings feed through the body which creates increased downward pressure on the bridge resulting in exceptional sustain and tone.

NEW! CG200 optical compressor - Carvin’s 2 CH Optical Compressor/Gate delivers the classic, distortion-free, studio sound that top engineers and musicians demand. We didn't skimp and use the typical VCA’s that go into inexpensive compressors. The difference is easily audible. Your sound will be open and natural – not boxy and sterile – even under heavy compression!

DCM2500 Power Amp - Pristine sound, brute power and no-fault reliability make the DCM amps the power amp of choice for professionals. Mechanically the DCM's are superior to the imports that are so prevalent today. Each DCM is hand built at our San Diego factory featuring all steel construction, recessed controls and heavy-duty power components.
