    Dead mint Carvin B800 for sale. $350 shipped CONUS. Low hours. Functionally perfect. No issues at all. This is a killer clean ss head that I ran at 2 ohms for a few short gigs (original music, so we had 20 minute sets). Never dropped, or abused in any way.

    The B800 is cleaner and clearer than my AG500. It sounds more hi-fi, as well, with nice top end extension.

    500/800 watts at 4/2 ohms. I think it's 250 at 8 ohms. [correction-300!]

    No trades, please.

    From BP review:
    The new B800 has a competitive feature set that enables bass players to have the power they need for a wide range of performance types. The B800 employs a mono block design and offers the same rich tone generated from discrete Class A preamps. With a surprisingly small footprint, this versatile power amp features an Active or Passive front panel input gain switch, along with Preamp Drive and Master volume controls. Additional front panel controls include Sub Bass, Bass, Low Mid, Mid, Hi Mid, and Treble.

    Adding still greater functionality to this new amplifier, the B800 incorporates a rear panel Direct Out on an XLR (balanced) connector with level control—enabling the unit to patch directly into PA systems or recording equipment. Bassists will also appreciate the effects loop built into the B800 with its front panel switch. And for making certain that they’re in tune with the rest of the band, the B800 includes a Tuner output jack that is independent of the Mute switch.

    To protect the system’s electronics, the B800 is encased in a rugged housing that is covered with a Duratex™ scratch resistant, weatherproof, polyurethane coating that will maintain its appearance through years of tortuous use. Carry handles are mounted on the amp head’s sides.

    Carson Kiesel, President of Carvin Corporation reflected on the company’s new amplifier offering, “The new B800 is a remarkably capable bass amp housed in a compact case that is ready to go at any time. We’re excited about this unit, as it provides bass players the flexibility to mate the unit with a variety of loudspeaker enclosures.”

    Well that's about what it's going for in mint condition. But given all the love for its big brother on this forum, you'd think those who don't need the insane amount for power the B1500 puts out would jump at this.

    I'm not so sure that's a good idea. How are you going to introduce the video? - "Hey kids, check out my dancing pickle."
