Carvin Introduces BX250 Micro Bass Head
San Diego, CA (January 15, 2011) -- Carvin unveils the BX250 Micro Bass head. This 250 watt amp offers freedom from heavy heads and big chassis. As a full featured head, you have 3 different EQ’s, which include 2 parametric mid-band filters, bass and treble controls, and a contour control offering more tone adjustments than you can imagine. Other features include a precision one-knob compressor to hold your peaks and a DI control with XLR output that’s switchable pre or post EQ. The mute and active/passive pickup switches are another plus. The tuner/phone output allows you to hit the mute for silent on-stage tuning or practice with headphones.

The BX250 produces 200 watts at 8 ohms and 250 watts at 4 ohms, providing plenty of headroom for clean output from its cool running Class D design.

Carvin also offers new compact bass systems based on the BX250 head. These BX250 systems are available with our popular BR Series 2 X 10 cabinets, with or without Neodymium drivers; and with our professional BRx Neodymium 2 X 10 cabinet. Big sound in a small package that won't break your back or your budget is what the BX250 systems are all about.
