    Up for sale is my beloved Carvin B1500 Bass amp. This amp is truly a beast. It was mainly a back up to my main amp(Mesa Titan) and has not seen much use. It has been rack almost all of the time I have had it and does have some rack rash from being swapped to and from different racks. Operation wise it is 100% flawless!!! Also included is a 3 space SKB rack which houses the Carvin perfectly.


    Here are the B1500 specs from Carvin:

    There's a new "King-of-the-Road"! The B1500 "mono block" bass head is "king" of all other bass amps offering extreme power. No other bass amp offers the tone and headroom! The B1500 delivers 700w at 8 ohms, 1250w at 4 ohms and 1900w at 2 ohms. Extraordinarily harmonic, rich tone shaping from 4 discrete class A gain stages straight from the input jack. Besides the B1500 boutique signature flat response, we equipped it with 6 tone controls. Starting with the SUB BASS at 50Hz, BASS at 100Hz, 3 MID frequency controls at 300, 1K and 3KHz, and TREBLE for ultra highs at 10Khz. The B1500 head also features front panel and foot switchable MUTE and EFFECTS LOOP switches. The MUTE feature allows tuning and changing of basses, while leaving the tuner/headphones jack active. The EFFECTS LOOP switch allows easy bypassing of effects for the purest of straight forward bass tone. If you need huge tone and power, then the B1500 head is for you!

    Hello,

    Quick question..how would you describe the tone of this amp...I have been wondering about it for a long time. What would you compare it to. Does if have a natural tone with minimum tone from the amp and more tone from the bass?

    Here is a thread with some other TB'ers giving some testimonials about the B1500. IMHO I don't think the B1500 sounds like any other amp in particular. It has it's own sound going on. The EQ section is very versatile and this amp gets crystal clear with a ton of power.. Here is a link that might help shed some light for you:

    Can the DI be used while in that rack case? It doesn't look like it but picture could be deceiving. I'm seriously interested in this head. Thanks.

    I believe you are right about the DI. I never used it as I have a Radial JDI I use. I would have to say the case would have to be notched out for the DI to be used, which would not affect the case's stability.
