    In trying to decide between my B1500 and the B2000 recently, I've decided to sell the B2000. They are so similar, I've been having a really hard time deciding. I think I mainly chose the B1500 because I am used to gigging it over the years, and used to adjusting those eq points more on the fly than I am with the B2000. I really can get the same sounds out of both of them though. The tone, headroom, power are all about the same. The B2000 has about a 20lb advantage, but that doesn't matter too much to me. This head truly rocks! Ships with all original paperwork in original packaging. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
