Guitar Amps

The X-30 Compact Tube Amp was discontinued in 1986.  Other than that, and some minor price changes, everything in the 1986 catalog remained the same as 1985.  One item of note is that Carvin discontinued use of the "MagnaLab" brand name, which is what they called their own line of speakers.  Form 1986 on, in-house produced speakers would simply carry the Carvin name.  To see the speaker descriptions, click here.
