    Found a guy on craigslist that lives close to me selling this for $100. Ive been looking for something that has a decent amount of power and is light for when i go to my friends house to **** around with some music. This would seem to meet my needs, but before i waste my time and gas to go look at it. I wanted to see if anyone has heard/played/owned one of these.

    Sounds like a bargain... Eli (Carvin devotee) as been summoned...

    I've never played through one, but heard a former drummer's new band who's bassist filled a moderate sized room quite well with one.

    Ive read user reviews on harmony central. it seems to have some good reviews, better than my current Peavey tko75. Just wanted to see if anyone had personally used it. 100 bucks for a light 100watt amp is pretty good, especially if i talk him down to $75. :ninja:

    I have the 200. It has served me well over the years. I have had some problems with it. I sent it back a year ago and they repaired th input jack. It does not have the tube tone, I now prefer, but it is my only amp and it works fine.

    Had one and sold it. It is fine for practice and goofing around, way too under powered for gigging. Carvin watts ain't real watts, for some reason. And I'm no Carvin hater, I have two of their basses. Still for a hundred bucks, if it works, what have you got to lose?

    Mine is a PB200, total 160 W bridged into the 15, also has a tweet with an attenuator knob. It has plenty of power for a rehearsal with an un-mic'd rock drummer. Can't really comment on the oomph level of the PB100... but the mid-shift is a nice feature to have. For $100 I'd say that's a nice deal.
