Re: current production KT88/6550??

The KT120s were chosen because most of the participants wanted power. Bob mentioned 6550s were the choice for good sonics. I'd do more research, as the KT66s are supposed to be beez knees for some applications. I'm curious to see what Mike Beam has to say about his SilverEagle KT88s. All of that sa...

Re: Is this a real Sunfire Signiture?

Wayne

I would say yes, due to the Joules meter being at 500 Joules and the Brass speaker output terminals.

One of the great things about attending something like Axpona is meeting some of the folks that built your gear.

All you have to do, is stand in front off a mirror holding all the great gear we have built at Carverfest.

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

I'm having trouble with my amp's chassis ground. I've been working directly with Bob to try and correct this problem. At the moment we are not sure whether it's a problem with my amp or with all amps. I'm going to request that everyone STOP and wait for the problem with my amp to be solved. This is...

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

Update from Bob via text message: Change: R58 to 4.7k - 1/2Watt R60 to 6.8k - 1/2Watt This will give the bias pot plenty of range for different tube set-points. Set the idle bias to 100mA on the meter. Russ Thanks for the update, this will be the 3rd time I will have changed R58 :? 1st from 6.8k to...
