Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Talked with Bob again just a few minutes ago, and he now tells me that the amps will have two circuit boards - one for both stereo channels and the other for the power supplies. A couple of amplifiers are already built and working, and as usual he can't say enough about how good they sound... Earlie...

Re: Carverfest 2018 Tube Amp Build Update

Dennis47 - Reading your questions tells me you know about as much as I do about the tube situation. As soon as anything further develops I will post about it. Right now Bob is concentrating on getting the parts delivery to be timely, but I expect he will turn to the subject of tubes before long. Jus...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

A lot of contingency plans are being made, for various dates/developments in the parts delivery drama. Re. moving the parts - Ed has a suburban, and I have my ¾ ton capped pickup plus the Carveraudio.com trailer – either truck can pull the trailer, and the trailer can haul most of the load by itself...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Wayne - No sense worrying about that, nothing we can do about it, except to hope that those various parts shippers don't fuck up in getting their orders to Bob. However, there is a backup plan forming: if the delivery is too late to catch Ed at home, we'll have them take it right to Bryson, and load...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Today' update: The switchable mono feature will create a mono amp of double the wattage, at least in theory, and pretty close in practice. So with KT-120s, "Call it 200 watts", says Bob. The preamp tube (first audio stage) will be a shared 12AX7, but the drivers will be a pair of 12AT7s - similar du...

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Yeah, I saw that post, and was very glad to see it. Until yesterday I wasn't even aware that there was such a site, and the name Clark seemed familiar, but I couldn't place it. And if you Google it, the first couple pages of hits are about the famous computer developer, not this guy.

Re: 2018 Carverfest Tube Power Amplifier Build

Bob just called, and I hit him with some pressing questions. He says there will be a switch on these Fest amps to combine the channels for raising the power for mono. Technically it's not "bridging" - that's not even a possibility with tube amps, but whatever he calls it, it will be there. I didn't ...

Re: Deadlines

Ed and I deliberately arranged the amp-build payments so that nobody would have to pay for both cabins and amps in the same month. But we never figured on Watershed setting such an unprecedentedly late deadline – in past years the cabins had to have deposits down at least a couple of months earlier ...

Re: Deadlines

Gents - This post was not about amp kits - it was about cabins. Trying to get some response from just a couple of guys, from whom we've heard nothing in a long time, before they lose their options.

Deadlines

Watershed needs to hear from just two more about cabin rental - Cabins 1 and 11. 888-604-3075 for Chris. Two days left - then after the close of business Tuesday they go open to the public. Ed has yet to hear from about a dozen guys about the amp kit final payments. Any day now Bob might want to kno...

Re: WANTED: Remote for CT-Seven (CT-7)

Got one on the Bay! - maybe the best outcome; hopefully it's an original.
Bring it to the Fest, if you think of it, and we can find out for sure if it is coded the same as the CT-17 I referred to in early June.

Re: Carverfest 2018 Tube Amp Build Update

OTD - There's bound to be some extra cost for 120's, but no figures at present. Talked with Bob half an hour yesterday, but the tube amp project never even got mentioned. It was all about another of his many projects, one I'm helping him on, in hopes that the time I can save him will be used on the ...

Re: CarverFest 2018 Cabin Reservations 2.0

Just talked to Chris at Watershed. He's being very patient, but needs to hear from about six people within the next week, If you're coming. Treehouse A, Cabins 1,7,9,11, and either 12 or 3. Talked to Bob last night, and he called Eddie, who's been hurting lately, but seems well on the mend, and "The...
