RIP Carvin

Unfortunately it looks like Carvin Audio is shutting down and is liquidating its inventory. I hope The Legacy amp line will live on somehow.

Re: ORIGINS

I'm an expert now. Everything I posted above ten years ago is irrelevant. Steve Vai is not Illuminati and Joe Satriani is. Jimi Hendrix was. Kurt Cobain wasn't. Pat Benatar is. None of the members of Led Zeppelin were. None of the members of Iron Maiden are. None of the members of the Doors were. E...

Re: Stillness in Motion DVD Issues

The clips you see online are in digital HD. The DVD is standard definition (worse quality). I really wish there would have been a blu-ray release of this one. Some streaming services such as Amazon sell an HD stream.

Re: Ibanez JEM 7V Borken String Help

Chances are that you aren't using the same gauge (thickness) of strings that the guitar came with. I'm sure the folks over at jemsite.com would be willing to help you out.

Re: New album?

I'm buying the DVD too, but hopefully Sony will let us "double-dip" in the near future. I'm all for a digital download release if that gets us HD sooner.

Re: New album?

I am also bummed that there won't be a Blu-Ray too, considering our new 4K world.

Re: Ibanez JEM7VWH doesn't comply with Steve's sound quality

I recommend trying #12 first if the issue is present on the next guitar.

Re: Story of Light Tour DVD?

I hope we get 1080p this time around if there is a Blu-Ray. Another live vinyl LP would be great too!

Re: Well... Let's hear some opinions on The Story Of Light c

I really love this album, but the amount of digital clipping is very unfortunate. It's so obvious in many places that I wonder if the clipping happened earlier on in the recording process and was therefore unfixable by the time the mastering took place. I hope it gets a remaster if this is indeed a ...

The Story of Light Platinum Package - Number of Picks?

How many picks did the rest of you get? I got 1. That seems strange since the product description says "Set of Steve Vai guitar picks." I figured I'd check here before I take it up with the store.

The album is: :headbang by the way. :)

Re: LEGACY PROBLEMS

It's a long shot but you could try cleaning the tube sockets. Do this by spraying some contact cleaner in all of the socket holes, or on all of the tube spikes, and then move the tubes in and out of the sockets several times. Wait for the contact cleaner to evaporate before turning on the amp (shoul...

Re: "Live In Minneapolis: Where The Wild Things Are" VINYL!!

I ended up getting the LP through Amazon. I have to say that it sounds great. I hope this will not be the last vinyl release we see from Steve.

I was surprised to see the Legacy I heads. They sounded smooth and fit right in tho ;).
