The design criteria for the X1 was to deliver the
sounds of the classic Carvin X-100B amplifier in a
compact package with added connectivity. The result is a full tube preamp in a pedal format, able to fit in a carry-on or backpack. The X1 incorporates tube technology with simple, yet flexible modern features to interface with many types of gear.
The MACH100 100W (50W/50W) Stereo Pedal Amplifier is designed for the modern guitarist who wants a compact high output amplifier that fits right on the pedal board. Use the stereo 2 channel amplifier to drive two guitar cabinets with 16, 8 or 4 ohm impedance. The LINE IN jack allows you to insert a backing track into your performance. Using the PHONES output, you can monitor the amplifier output using a 3.5mm stereo cable. The LEVEL control allows the user to adjust master volume of the amplifier. The MUTE switch lets you instantly control the output of the amplifiers with the press of the switch. Step up to the next level of compact amplification today.
Enrich your guitar tone with the V112E 12-inch guitar extension cabinet from Carvin Amps and Audio. Added richness is not only delivered from the EMINENCE GT12-8 speaker, but from the natural wood enclosure that features the advantage of an enclosed back. You not only get the crystal clear high-end, but also the deep, rich bass from your low E string that open backs can’t offer.

"Just received my X1 Pre amp. It is amazing! So nice to purchase a product that meets or better yet exceeds expectations"David L. Marshfield,MA
"Perfect fit for my home studio, sounded great through my THD Univalve 15. I own a V3M and I can attest that both amps are definitely voiced differently, now I have a huge pallet of tonal options. Thanks for hanging in there and designing such a versatile and useful piece of gear. Look forward to see what you develop next."Simone F. Calenzano,ItalyDear Mr. Bruce,
I need to congratulate you on the CARVIN X1, which has made me feel great emotions, after years of using software emulators of tube amplifiers!!!!!! I could not spend my money better, thank you very very much!!! I’ll tell all the musicians my friends and I really hope you’ll have a great success.
"Received cab. It's beautiful. I will be breaking it in asap. UPS was on time. Polite. Awesome. Thanks for making great American products, Carvin amps!" Nathaniel A.
"I auditioned the MACH100 through several different cabs, and, as anticipated, the MACH100 is primarily a loud and clean pedal, which makes it ideal as a neutral tonal center for the many effects and drives on my pedalboard. A small box with a big output, the MACH100 makes perfect sense for those looking for loud, clean and reliable power – perfect for when your amp fails on your, perfect for building a compact and portable pedalboard rig." -Guitar World Magazine
"MusicRadar verdict: The MACH100 has such an extraordinary amount of power and neutral tone that it makes absolute sense for the gigging musician to carry one, either as a backstop in case of amp failure or to use as part of a fully portable pedalboard rig."- MusicRadar.com
