  1. I hate to do this, but I have a few bills I need to pay off next month...so here goes...

    Up for sale is my Carvin DXM1540L power amp. I bought this amp new right at 6 months ago and has spent every minute I've owned it in a rack bag. There is not a scratch or mark on it...could pass for brand new!! It may have 20 total hours of play time and has never left my smoke-free home! I have never had the volume past 1/4 of the way up as it was shaking my walls thru my DNA 1x12 cab!
