CarvinBX1500 Bass Amp, anyone with one or experience?

Post by billybass » 01 Feb 2018, 16:01

Hi AllBassers,
I have been looking for a bass amp that is a bit more hifi than my Orange Bass Terror 500.
The Orange has plenty of power and gain, but lacking EQ.
Do any of you have any experience with the Carvin BX1500?
Cheers in advance,
BillyBass

Well, my B1500 is magnificent. But the B2000 I bought used arrived sick and I never got around to getting it fixed. So I'm not really qualified to comment on the D Class versions such as the BX1500..
* 2 Stingray 5's (one heavily modded), Ibanez SR805, Ashbory, + more...
* Carvin B1500, Epifani PS1000, Ashdown Superfly amps.
* Lots of DIY neo/lightweight cabs including one made from composites http://www.ozbassforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2546

I own the BX500 class D version (that I think is very similar but for the power amp).

The EQ options for that are as broad as I've come across for a bass amplifier: 9 band slider-equaliser, parametric 4-knob equaliser, and a contour knob.
