Re: BOB CARVER AUDIO

I believe it to be called the Black Velvet.

Supposedly a redisign of the Sunfire Vacuum Tube Control Center, which was an excellent preamp.

Re: BOB CARVER AUDIO

I ask Bob about the preamp last time I taked to him! He said he never got to finish it because other things came up but he does still have the one he was working on. He said he may bring it with him to CF!
Good judgment comes from experience,but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

That makes sense because when Bob Carver closed his repair shop he gave Bill all the schematics and spare parts for everything EXCEPT the tube pre. :-k
