I've had my Carvin B1500, Avatar 2x12 neo rig for a little over a week now and all i can say is wow.Comparing it to my previous arrangement of gear its light years ahead of all of it. Ive owned a GK 1001rb, a late 80's swr sm400, nemesis 4x10 combo, genz and benz tubeworks 1x15 combo and frankly the best tone i ever had was with the Tubeworks combo, but man was that thing week. I a/b'd the b1500 with a friends wt800 and with a good compression pedal i was able to hit all the tones the wt800 did exept with much more headroom. I love the drive knob it gives me tube like warmth even at low volumes. I pretty much run it flat with the mids abit lower at about a 4. The 2x12 moves some air. Its a neo cab so it can hadle 600 watts and its 8ohms. In the next few months i plan on adding a 2x10 cab also at 8 ohms dropping it to a 4ohm load that will be taking in 1250 watts of pure goodness. Honestly i don't need all the power this thing has fo live gigs, but for practices and jam seccions i have to be able to fight off some stacks and with with this rig i have more than enough power to do so. $730 for the head shipped, 360 for the cab shipped cant beat it, i'm in love!
