My friend brought his 100/50 Watt 212 Carvin Legacy to school last week, and we were jamming with the volume mostly on 1. I turned it up to about 3 or 4 just to bang out some open chords, and the clarity and "oomph" blew my mind. As much as I love my Traynor, its downfall has always been that by the time I reach a desirable level of saturation for a good clean tone, my distortion pedals only sound good at a point I consider too much volume. I can turn down the amp volume and get a good distorted tone, but then the clean tone suffers. So I'm flipping my Traynor (over to my brother, so I can alway hypothetically get it back) and selling the trade gear to acquire a new amp. I don't know what, though. 50/100 watts is still too much for me. That Legacy had balls, but it was WAY too loud (on the 50 watt setting). I've been using a RAT, and a soul food to smooth it out. I like having the abrasive sound the RAT provides (and will be keeping it), but that Carvin I think is closer to the tone I shoot for. Balanced, smooth but with crispy high end. Enough low end punch for percussive riffing/palm muting stuff. If anyone here has one of the Carvin models that cuts to <50 watts, I'd be interested in hearing opinions.
