    Hey there,

    I will not have a chance to try either of these amps so asking for a little input. Yes I have searched. I play a lot of different stuff from bluegrass with ubass to reggae to samba etc. The TC will be 50 cheaper. I haven't decided if I would get the Carvin 115 or 210 either. What says everybody? All of these look pretty cool and look like they would make a great practice/small room amp. Any input would be appreciated....

    I really like the BG250's tone. Tone print is really handy too.

    Tough call. I have a BG250 and like it a lot - the Carvin has some nice features though. I have never played though one.

    Sorry - no help ;)

    Yeah I'm leaning that way simply on the fact that the specs seem about the same and the TC is 50$ cheaper--thanks

    Carvin:

    Made in the USA
    Slightly better EQ
    Free colored tolex options available
    $18 cover
    Company with reputation for good customer service.

    Worth the extra $50 IMO.
