    That is my poor Strat; it gets swapped out depending on the weather. It had a P Rails, then a Black Winter, in the picture that is a Colossal Incantation.

    Right now, a Dimebucker/Lawrence 250ML vibe is going on for the studio project I am working on.

    Sorry to go off topic, but I love that single-bucker Strat, with the Babicz. Interesting volume control. Is that a Screamin' Demon?

    I get the Fender/Marshall/Mesa Boogie comparisons and agree, but I have never heard anything VOX-like coming out of my amp. That being said, I have never tried to coax a VOX out of it, and with all of the tone shaping in this amp, I would consider it to be entirely possible. Mine is dialed in as a very thumpy hot-rodded 800. So thumpy that my bass player says I am infringing on his sonic territory and he is getting lost in the mix.

    Those Active Tone Controls and Active 5 band Eq was the deciding factors in tone shaping.

    The clean channel on pre 1986 X-100 B, was more Fender like, post 1987's clean channel could get 1960's Vox sounding

    Ah, the poor man's Marshall! I love the old fuzzy model with EL34s and pushed with an SD-1 or Rat. Awesome clean channel as well.

    I have only used it once for home recording, and it was noisier than expected. I think it was designed with live applications in mind. I use the Marshall for live and the Marshall/VOX combo for studio, so I do not need to check it out again. I use the Carvn at the practice space because of the amazing flexibility in the tone-shaping I can easily use it with all three bands

    From what I was told the pre 1987 Carvin's used only 6L6 power tubes, but from 1987 to the closing of Carvin's amp division in 2017, they has a switch so you could use 6L6 or EL 84 power tubes .

    I have to agree out of the gate, the X100B has a huge amount of gain, and then, if needed, the internal boost can be engaged to push it over the top. Mine has more gain than my JCM 2000.

    It doesn't have the drive of JCM 800, but put a good distortion thru the front input, it will out do a JCM 800 and it has Fender Cleans on the clean channel.
    The effects loop is buffered and with the 5 band graphic Eq, you can easily get a Marshall or Mesa Boogie sound .

    Good choice and enjoy the amp

    That's not a 80's amp. That's the series IV reissue that was built up into the teens when the family split happened and the guitar side became Kiesel. Those are absolutely wicked amps! I own a 1991Series III X 50 B Hot Rod Mod amp now and have owned many Carvin amps.
