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.

I’ve been a Carvin customer and fan since the early eighties. I own several Carvin guitars including basses and acoustics. I also own several amps. Great to hear you are coming back. Your equipment was the highest quality and a great value.

I’m so glad to see Carvin back. Great to have a great company with a great history that has innovated products and listens and supports musicians, and has from the very beginning. I’ve been involved professionally in live music, recording, and music education for over 40 years and one of my earliest influences was seeing my first Carvin catalog. It was better than seeing my first Playboy. Lol! Great quaility gear at great prices. I hope Carvin continues forever.

Awesome to hear Carvin is still kicking! I was so sad to hear that they would be closing the doors completely. I have been buying Carvin guitar amp products since the mid 90’s and still play on my V3 combo every week. Looking forward to bringing the amps back again in the future. Best of luck!

I am excited that you will be making new guitar, bass , and audio products. I have been a loyal customer since 1979. I have purchased many products through the years and have been proud to continue to own guitar amps, bass amps, mixers, pro audio speakers, you name it I’ve owned it or own it now. Always been a Carvin fan since I first laid eyes on the magazine ads in 1976 as a teenager. Let’s go Carvin.

Absolutely GREAT news! I’m sure I speak for many of us CARVIN Geeks, I can’t wait to see the new Pro, Guitar and Bass Audio you’ll be offering. I have three CARVIN guitar amps and one bass amp and other CARVIN accessories and mics. They’ve NEVER let me down.

Wishing you the BEST of health and prosperity in 2019.

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!
