I'm in need of a new amp head for use with an MAS26 that's on the way. I found two really good deals online that might be of interest to others looking for a new amp. 1)Carvin Audio is selling the BX700 through their eBay store for $331 with the footswitch included. I was just about to pull the trigger on this when I found… 2)Guitar Center is selling the Acoustic B600HD for $300 plus another 25% off with a coupon code, so $225. Now I am torn. I really like the plethora of tone controls and features on the Carvin. I also like the ability to switch the graphic EQ on/off with the footswitch. However, I'm a little concerned about repairs/parts/maintenance with it down the road since they have gone out of business. I'm thinking maybe it's better to settle for the Acoustic, which comes with a three year warranty, and put the $100 bucks towards a separate preamp that will give me more tone controls and will come in handy when doubling on upright and electric. Carvin BX700 Pros: Can handle a 2 Ohm load Semi-parametric EQ 2nd EQ section (the graphical EQ) Footswitch included Better compressor (knob vs "acousti-comp" button) Con: no warranty. Will parts be available down the road? Acoustic B600HD Pros: 3-year warranty Cheaper, leaves $100 to put towards a separate preamp Slightly more compact Con: Fan on top, fan is reported to be a little noisy Anyway, I thought others might be interested in these and have some useful insight.
