    I love the tone of this amp! However, I recently bought its bigger brother the bx1200 and they sound fairly similar to me so I'm selling the B800.

    Its in excellent condition... hard to tell its not new. I've owned it for about 6 months bought brand new from Carvin. Its seen about 6 gigs.


    300w into 8 ohms, 500w into 4 ohms, and 800w into 2 ohms
    Active and Passive front panel input gain switch
    signal MUTE front panel switch or optional FS22 footswitch
    Internal OPTO CLIP activated limiter
    Preamp DRIVE and master VOLUME controls
    DIRECT OUT balanced XLR & LEVEL control with
    "Pre-Post" preamp and "Ground Lift" switches
    EFFECTS LOOP switchable by front panel switch or optional FS22 footswitch.
    TUNER output jack independent of MUTE switch
    High current SPEAKON? connectors and 1/4? speaker jacks
    Premium construction features metal bushings and shafts
    22LBS including case

    It's worth mentioning that these amps use MIL SPEC, double-sided, through-hole plated, fire retardant FR-4 glass epoxy circuit boards. Something you would expect from a more expensive boutique amp.

    The B800 is discontinued (what a shame). Here is a pic, but it is NOT of this amp for sale. Its just to give an idea of what the B800 looks like.

    b800-front. b800-back.

    Mine looks exactly like it. I will try to get some pics if people really want them.

    As I said mine is in excellent condition.

    $325 paypal accepted. No trades please.

    I finally got to hear one of these used lat week. If I didn't just get a SVT Classic or needed a backup you would have a sale.

    Bump for a little workhorse that sounds darn good.
  3. Was trying to find a reason not to get this, Then I saw you're in Canada too.....so...um....
