    What?

    It's honest. Most old tube amps have iffy reverbs.

    Are you picking that bad boy up? Asking price of $500 is a good start point. Thing about Carvin is there is not a lot of demand for them. You may be able to get a great deal here. I’ve had a Legacy 2 and still have the 3. Never had a first version Legacy. Liked both a lot. I think they are great amps and I could make a strong case that they are the best Carvin put out.

    Carvin historically had very good fx loops. I’ve never had noise or performance issues. If the reverb is week you can easily resolve by putting an effect in the loop.

    Well, Carvin uses a lot of cheap flimsy parts which I would never have used....
    The quality seems rather low to me.
