  1. Hi, I have been playing for about 2 years with my Hartke B-30 and I think it's time to step up and get a better amp. I am looking for one in the $400-500 price range. Thanks guys

    I just got the Carvin PB200-15 amplifier a month ago and it kicks ass for $420. It has awesome tone, 160w RMS of power, a 15" speaker and tweeter, compresser and noise gate, 3 preamp boosts, and a 7 band eq. I can crank the volume on this beast almost all the way and still get no distortion. If you are looking for the best you can get for the $, i would reccommend this amp strongly.
