16 December 2006 - San Diego, CA — Winter NAMM, Booth 4490, Hall C … Carvin, the name musicians everywhere look to for high quality guitars, basses, instrument amplifiers, recording equipment, and sound reinforcement products, proudly introduces the new BR615 Bass Combo. Featuring a powerful amplifier, advanced equalization, a 15-inch low frequency driver, a Titanium high frequency driver, an XLR direct output, and numerous additional features integrated into a Duratuff™-covered enclosure with retractable handles, the BR615 Bass Combo is the perfect solution for gigging or studio bassists in search of compact, powerful, all-in-one system.
For bassists on the go, the new BR615 Bass Combo is tough to beat. The BR615 maintains the compact form factor of its BR Series siblings, yet its powerful amplifier combined with a 15-inch low frequency driver for deep, rich bass and a Titanium high frequency driver makes this a remarkably robust setup. With a rugged Duratuff-covered enclosure that hides the wear and tear of the road, this terrific amplifier even features a tilt-back design that puts the bass right where it’s wanted. When the gig is over, the retractable handles make moving this powerhouse amp quick and easy. To protect the transducers, a 16-guage, perforated steel grill is supplied.
The new BR615 Bass Combo’s BX600 mono block bass head features discrete Class A circuitry, a contour control, a single knob compressor, and a front-mounted XLR direct output. With a whopping 600 watts of power at 2 ohms, this terrific amplifier has plenty of muscle for those musical applications where high output levels are a must to get the job done. This exceptional system also incorporates a heavy-duty crossover featuring a 6-position attenuator for precision settings at 0, -3, -6, -12, -24, and OFF. The BR615’s sealed crossovers and connector plates prevent air leakage and make for a rugged amp that will withstand years of torturous road use.
For shaping the sound exactly to one’s liking, the BR615 Bass Combo features parametric EQ with mid sweep and a 9-band graphic equalizer coupled with a Graphic EQ In/Out switch. This versatile amplifier also provides Active/Passive switching, and the switches feature active electronics for clean, precise control and greater reliability. To warm the sound up, the front panel Drive control can push the Class A preamps to a warm growl—providing the ultimate in tonal diversity. There is also a Master control for the preamp.
Carson Kiesel, President of Carvin Corporation, commented on the company’s new BR615 Bass Combo. “The BR615 provides bassists with ample power and a big sound that travels easily—making this an excellent choice for one nighters or extended gigs. The BR615 is a surprisingly light and compact model that packs a lot of punch.”
