It's a pretty good deal. Try to talk him down a bit, since it's a different cab and the 'verb doesn't work.

It's OK, but...you can get a new 1/2 stack for $900...or the X212B Combo for $700. Carvin has instant $100 rebates in effect now on new gear. Personally, I'd go for the combo.

What, do you work for them or something?

Yeah, may go for this, maybe I can talk him down to the $350-400 range.

Nope, but I prefer new gear to broken/mismatched used gear...

Plus the combo's only $150 more.

Yeah, I know what you mean, I'm just trying to stay -$500....


Put the GAS in check and save up and you'll be rewarded in the end ... I saved 2 years for my gear and boy am I glad I did.

ahh the smell of cork...

It's not a bad deal TS, just a little high since the verb isn't working. That could be a very simple fix btw. Great amp, meh cab.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

your posts come off as a bit..this
that and while Carvin makes great stuff, you may want to occasionally consider rec'ing something else. Welcome to UG.

If budget weren't a concern I would...

Suhr Badger
Mesa Boogie Lonestar
Vox Ac30
Marshall JVM
Fender Twin Reverb
Fender Bassman

...but Carvin makes the best affordable "gig-worthy" amps AFAIAC. Not to mention that the OP was considering a Carvin.
