Mike (mbskeam) is still building on mine.

It would be interesting if people also posted which speakers they are used on and impressions.

I have one but I haven't (here comes the shit storm) taken it out of the box from Vintage.

Tom & the boys made all the post fest upgrades & swapped out the cheap tubes and tested it.

So I believe it is capable of working perfectly if I would take it out & connect it.

I can hear you tube freaks giving me shit....and I don't care...LOL.


Let me have it !!!!

Hey Franky! - you can't hear the difference anyhow! :lol:

Mine still works wonderfully! Thanks again to all the smart guys at Carverfest that helped me- especially Roy!

+1. That makes 15.

The parts in the box one, I'm not so sure about.


EDIT...

Ah flip. I see it was counted in the other thread. Back to 14.
I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!
