Carvin Introduces MB210 Combo Bass Amp

Carvin MB210 Combo Bass AmpCarvin has added a 210 model to their micro bass combo amp series. The MB210 carries an internal head unit, a pair of 10” speakers, and a neodymium titanium tweeter, all while weighing a mere 36 pounds.

Alone, the MB210 delivers 200W at 8 ohms, but can push up to 250W at 4 ohms with the addition of an 8 ohm extension speaker. Features on the combo are in line with the rest of the series and include a compressor, Contour and Drive controls, a tweeter switch, a mute switch, and a tuner/headphones jack. For EQing, the combo offers bass and treble knobs with a pair of parametric mid controls. The MB210 also has a direct out that has a separate level control in addition to a ground switch and a post/pre option.

Interestingly enough, the combo has optional vinyl choices, including Python Snakeskin, Vintage Tweed, Hot White Bronco, Country Western, and more. Carvin says custom coverings require an extra 3-10 business days to be built.

The Carvin MB210 is shipping now, with a price tag of $399. For more info, visit the Carvin website.
