Our bass player is currently gigging a Carvin BX500 but it keeps crapping out on him. I will say that it is a decent sounding amp though; we both prefer it to the Ampeg SVT450 head. That said, he is wanting to pick up a better sounding more reliable head and is looking hard at the Orange and Eden listed above. Any advice or comparison comments are welcomed. Any other brand at this price point worth serious consideration?
