: I'm trying to choose between the Hartke kickback 15 or the Carvin PB200-15. What reputations do the two products have? They both can be purchased over the internet ( usually at a better price than in a store). I can't find any seller of peavey tnt on the net.( this was the third choice I came up with by reading the old post). So it's between the Hartke or Carvin. The bass does have active pickups. The amp is for practice (and maybe church or school jazzband down the road.)

Hey...I haven't had much experience with Hartke's, but I have played the exact Carvin your looking at...and I was a bit dissapointed. It has a fairly good output, and good sound...the graphic is good, but the noise gate is troublesome, and, When I put my little Roland DB-500 (160w 12") in the same room, it could blast away the Carvin. The fifteen did give the low b little more room, but all in all, it was pretty weak. Fine, clean, and versatile if your playing through a PA, and it can have a cab added, but overall, I found it a bit weak.That's my two cent's
