We here at Carvin Amps & Audio wanted to take a moment to give you some exciting updates about our company.

We re-launched our website this past January ahead of the Winter NAMM Show and began moving forward with new leadership. Joel Kiesel will serve as President and Kristen Kiesel Lieurance will serve as Vice President. Joel and Kristen are the children of Carson Kiesel, who recently retired from his role as President, and grandchildren of founder Lowell Kiesel. They mark the third generation of the Kiesel family to head up the company.

Glad that you all are back customer from the 1980’s. When might we start seeing guitar and bass amps again or sound systems?

I was really disappointed when it looked like Carvin was gone. I’ve been buying your guitar stuff for years and still use it every week. VERY happy you are coming back. Thanks!!!

I have been buying Carvin since the 60’s when I was in Junior High School. I was so sorry to see the company leave. Now that they’re back I wish them the best of luck! Now let’s roll out some bass amps and cabs! I got my wallet ready! :-)

I am so happy to hear that new life is being breathed into my all-time favorite music company!

I’ve been buying Carvin basses, amps, and audio gear for more than 30 years and have installed and recommended dozens of products—all my friends and clients have been as satisfied as I’ve been.

There aren’t many companies or products about which I can say that, so thank you, Carvin, and best wishes for success going forward!

Awesome, I’m super excited about this! I hope the TRC column array systems make a return. I’ll definitely be purchasing more of them if they do. Best of luck on this new chapter in the Carvin history!

The X1 All Tube Guitar Preamp Pedal Wins Guitar World's Gold Award

November 30, 2018

X1 wins Gold Award from Guitar World Magazine

A GUITAR PREAMP can add new life to an amp by expanding an its tonal range, dynamics and performance. Even better is a versatile preamp like the Carvin X1 all-tube guitar preamp pedal that also sounds great on its own and can be used to drive a power amp for live performances or plugged directly into a recording system in the studio. While the Carvin X1 is packaged in a pedal format, it’s packed with features comparable to standalone multi-channel amps and professional preamp systems. When it comes to bang-for-the-buck and performance, the Carvin X1 is one of the most attractive preamps we’ve encountered recently.
