How much can I get for my 94 carvin stack?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bkchang79, Aug 26, 2002.


  1. I want to sell my Carvin stack at home and was wondering how much I can get for it. The stack will consist of a 4x10 cab, 1x15cab, PB500 amp/pre, wires, foot control pedal, and covers. I rarely play the stack since it's too much to carry and won't fit in my apartment. I proably put 40-75 hours on it and the last 5 years I was away from home because of college.

    The price would be heavily influenced by where you live, bkchang.

    Since you haven't bothered to fill out your profile, we don't know if you're trying to sell it in Tennessee or Tunisia. :confused:
     
  3. I live in berkeley,ca but the carvin stack is in Orange, CA

    You will find older Carvin amp gear on eBay. I'd look it up and use that as a gauge.

    The Carvin discussion page always seems to have threads about these older models but there's nothing set up for selling them there.

    Hi,

    Ebay would be a good resource for prices.

    I'd recommend that you sell all items separately as you'll greatly increase the number of potential buyers. Someone might be dying for the head but has cabinets already. Another might want one of the cabs but not the rest, etc.

    If you use ebay, take good photos, write a good, thorough description with accurate analysis of the condition and you should do just fine.

    id say probably about 600-800 for the whole thing or 300 for the 4x10. 200 for the 15. and 300-400 for the head. Thats what i usually see carvin stuff going for in good condition.

    I'd say more like the low end of that range...$600. You might be able to con someone into paying $800 if you're willing to wait.

    Think about it: If I can buy a brand new stack from Carvin for $1200, why should I buy one that's 8 years old for $800?

    Sadly, Carvin has low resale value in general.
