    You all know the sad tale: Band broke up, everyone got married and now pushes strollers instead of gear.


    I bought this amp new and direct from Carvin a few years back before they discontinued it. I used it about 10 times paired with an Aguilar GS212 cab. It has a great sound and a lot of power. It is in excellent condition and does not have a scratch on it.

    I am downsizing to a combo situation and have no need for this amp head anymore. I would love to pass it on to someone who would appreciate it.

    Here is the original ad as it appeared in the Carvin catalog Carvin museum.

    Here is the spec sheet (PDF)

    The amp has been living in the garage, snug and comfortable in a Dukane case with carrying handles and a shoulder strap. If you want it, I am happy to include the case for free. I will also throw in a Monster speaker cable and a Neutrik speakon cable.

    I am asking $300.

    I would love to do a local sale for cash. I am located in central New Jersey, very close to Rutgers University. If not, I will ship it to continental US in exchange for a USPS money order. Buyer pays shipping costs. No trades please.

    Priority goes to locals, if that is not possible then we default to a shipping situation. Then, I will contact the first person who contacts me and then on down the list.

    Thanks for looking and take care,

    I may be interested in this. How warm is the tone since there is no tube preamp. I am looking for a powerful deep warm tone.

    It is warm, but maybe not as warm as an all tube amp. It is a great head. I used to own one.

    The amp has a pretty warm tone for being a solid state, IMHO.

    Also, sale is PENDING. Thanks for all the interest. If the sale falls through, I will update.
