"The BX500 is a Winner! Bravo Carvin! I recieved this little monster a week ago and I'm simply blown away from the power and sound that comes from such a small package! Had my doubts before ordering but with Carvins reputation and prior personal experience with other products, took a leap of faith with this lil cracker box! I needed something small in size but didn't want to compromise on power or tone. Whoever said you can't have it all, is a thing of the past! If ya can't find your sound with this amp, you don't have one! The 12AX7 tube in circuit on preamp section is what it is all about! Rich and Sweet are only failing adjectives for loss of words here! I set this amp on top of a BR210 cab (sideways-10's on top of other) for studio, best this cab has ever sounded! Also used on my other cab (a single light weight Ampeg 1x12" cab)-with spkr. replaced with the Carvin 300 watt 4ohm 12"bass/PA spkr! (road cab.) The whole rig weighs in at 20lbs. and sounds like a rig that is 4 times it size! Can't beat this mule pound for pound or watt for watt! Will fit in any size coffe shop venue and can take it there in my Mazda Miata Convertible, if I take my Steinberg bass! Super job Carvin!"
