    Hey folks....I'm looking for a micro head to be paired with an Eden Ex110 (which I already have) This rig will be primarily used for practice and the occasional small rehearsal. I'd like to keep it sub $300, and closer to $200.

    I was just about set on the Carvin BX250, when I came across the TC BH250. The features intrigue me. I like the on board tuner and while gimmicky, the Toneprint is kinda neat. Maybe something fun to play around with.

    Does anyone have experience with both of these cabs? I have heard negative things about T.C.'s power ratings being bloated. Is this true with the BH250?


    Thanks guys.

    I have never used those 2, but just wanna say I am so happy with my MarkBass LM250,with it's gig backpack.If you find a used one grab it.

    Having owned both of those I say neither. Get the GK MB200.

    I have, like and use the Carvin BX250. In my opinion you really can't go wrong with the Carvin, GK or TC.

    Thanks guys. I'm leaning back towards the Carvin. The larger size is okay with me. The lack of a fan is a good thing. I like the EQ section and I think it will match closest to my touring rig which uses a Wp100b.

    Now to find one........used market is non existent on those things right now. New shipped is 240.....might just pull the trigger. I spend that much on effects all day lol,

    Not much experience with GK other than a Backline, but I think I'll opt for one of their larger heads in the future to see what they can do.
