Up for sale is my Carvin BX500 I picked this amp up locally (Nov. 2013) from a fellow TB'er. It's in perfect working condition with only a few scratches on the top. I bought this amp without a tube in it, used it the past few months with it bypassed...and it sounds fantastic! Clean sounding and with tons of tone shaping features! I'm sure if you added a tube, it would only make it better!
