Philip uses Carvin amps exclusively and is also endorsed by Carvin. For club gigs he uses both Carvin Pro Bass 100 and 200
amps together. It gives a nice punchy sound. For large gigs he uses a Carvin RSP 1000 with an 8 x.10 cabinet. It’s nice and loud but if you stand too close, it’ll hurt you! Click here to visit Carvin’s web site.
Philip is also using the new Carvin BRX amps. He uses the BRX1500 head.
