    SOLD!

    I ordered this baby from Carvin in March 2007. It's been lightly used for home practice and a few band rehearsals and jam sessions since then. It' never been pushed hard, and it's never been exposed to smoke or spills. Not a nick, dent, scratch or blemish of any kind on it. You can hardly even see any signs of use on the rubber feet! I don't have the original box, but it will come with original heavy gauge power cord and owner's manual.

    If you're looking at this, you probably already know, but here are the power ratings on this gem:
    • 300W @ 8 ohms
    • 500W @ 4 ohms
    • 800W @ 2 ohms
    Asking $325 plus actual shipping from 37660 OR will trade straight across for a Boss GT-10B. Not interested in other trades.

    Here are a few pics. More available upon request:

    No magic smoke here! Just a mint condition well-pampered amp. Thanks for the bump!

    I meant that in the best possible way!! I have a B800 & a B1500, and think they're the most underated amps ever. I will never, ever part with them either.:bassist:

    Dang! You guys are making me reconsider wanting to sell it. I'll leave it for now, but, if someone's interested, get it before I change my mind... :)

    You don't see these come up very often, if I hadn't picked up the B1500 as my second amp, I'd be all over this! And I might yet....:ninja:

    Lots of talk, but no action... I'm going to be using it for a jam session with the guys this morning. Somebody take this thing and make sure today is the last time I use it! :)
     
  13. Hi Dave... why bother selling it?? I've test-played that particular model at the Carvin showroom several times.. It's fabulous with lots of headroom. You should also consider putting an ad on Raleigh/Cary N.C. craigslist.. Lots of money in the Triangle Area. Best of results to you man... :smug:
