    I have a Carvin BX-500 in great condition available. This amp is pretty killer, and my friend who plays upright loves it for his needs as well as BG work. Built in comp, multiple eq's, 2 ohm capabilities, ect.

    This unit is in good cosmetic condition, with a couple of scratches, mostly on the bottom. It's fully functional except for the D.I. out. The D.I. out has a horrible buzz/distortion which makes this feature of the amp unusable. Other than this one issue, this is a great head. Comes with the Rack adapter, so you can drop it in a standard width rack with no issues.

    The stock tube has been replaced with a Groove Tubes 12-ax7. I had it lying around and liked the character it gave the amp, so the two are now traveling companions.

    Bump for one of the most underrated amps. I use mine when my Genz 9.2 is too much juice. If you use a footswitch for the graphic EQ its like having an entire second channel. GLWS!
