Although guitars and
basses remained basically the same as 1969, in 1970, a pair of new
bass amps were offered, which were based on the "B" series
picture for a larger version.
The Bass Master head (left)
looked the same as 1969's B-1010 head, but the internal components had
changed, providing 3 different power levels on 3 different models. All 3
models had the same control layout, with master volume, 3-band parametric EQ,
treble boost and dual inputs. The B-1050 produced 80W RMS, and
sold for $140.00. The B-1800 produced 130W RMS, and sold for
$175.00. The B-3000 produced 200W RMS, and sold for $260.00.
Carvin offered a pair of bass
amps in 1970. The BM-750 Bass Master (above, left) used the
B-1800 head, with a BR-440 cabinet loaded with 4 12" Jensen bass
speakers. Price on the BM-750 was $375.00. The SBM-800
Super Bass Master (above, right) used the B-3000 head, with a pair of
BR-440 speaker cabinets. The SBM-800 sold for $675.00.
