Carvin Acoustic/Electric Bass?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by nate 0 jt, Aug 4, 2001.

  1. I am interested in one. How do they sound unplugged? Plugged in? I am looking at a four string fretless. Anybody have any expirience with one or any Carvin acoustic bass for that matter? Thanks a lot.

    They're pretty good plugged. You can't use them in any realistic playing situation unplugged, though. Fine for playing while watching TV--you can hear them well enough for that--but no way will they stand up to an acoustic guitar or a piano without an amp. They weren't designed to do that.
