The unveiling of the new C1240 Concert Series 12-Channel Console demonstrates Carvin's commitment to professional live sound. The C1240 includes a total of 6 channel sends: 4 monitors and 2 effects, and the 3-band channel EQ features LO, MID and HI controls, giving you greater control of your sound. The Concert Series is designed for installations such as churches and performance venues, or for touring sound systems. Careful attention has been given to the features, sound reproduction and mechanical construction, making Carvin's new Concert Series mixers the ideal choice for most live sound applications. Professional features, unsurpassed sound, rugged construction and a price that can't be beat make the C1240 the ideal choice for your live setup, and best of all, it's made in the USA. 

Simplicity In Operation 
Ease of operation is incredibly important. The C Series consoles are designed with the operator in mind. Everything is logically arranged. Simply plug-in the channels, adjust the monitor levels and bring up the main L/R faders and you're up and running. If you need EQ (tone changes), simply dial in the sound you want. The C Series is designed on a small-scale platform making it easy to transport. No other console offers more channels per linear inch. 

Quality Control 
Our Quality Control Department personally inspects every mixing console. After the physical inspection, the most critical and most important part of QC testing is running every channel, master section and connector through Audio Precision™ computers to verify every function. This means everything meets 100% of its specifications. This is great assurance that every EQ section, every output delivers the highest voltages with the lowest possible THD.

The engineering and design is what you'd expect from Carvin's high-end manufacturing. Ultra low-noise, high slew rate IC's for exceptional sound. Sealed controls and switches guard against the elements while the "SMT" Surface Mount Technology construction ensures the integrity of each component. The rugged chassis incorporates the integral SwitchMode™ 90V-260V 50-60 Hz power supply. The C1240 is made in the USA at our San Diego, CA facility.
