Re: Awaiting the Arrival of a Carverfest Tube Amp from Angelo!

@jjptkd I obtained a 2011 CF tube amp last spring and have been rolling tubes since. I find both power and driver tubes can make quite a difference in detail and soundstage. I keep coming back to EL84 Telefunken (circa 1955) power tubes and 6AX7 NOS Tung-Sol (circa 1952) driver tubes. The new-issue ...

Re: Carverfest Tube Amp Technical Discussion

We have the Crimson 275 in place of the mighty V20 in Cabin 12. Y’all gonna love this amp. Big stones, it’s driving the M3s beautifully. We’re going to roll some PSVane front end tubes in and my RCA 6L6s in and give them a go. Ray, Interested to know your opinion on preference for power and input t...

Bob Carver Play List

Does anyone know, or could someone ask Mr. Carver, what would be
on his favorite play list when he takes time to 'Enjoy the Music'?

Inquiring mind wants to know.... :-k

Bob brought a few tubes with him - KT120s are Tung-Sol, and the 12AT7s and 12AX7s are JJs.

RR
RobertR,
Do we know what brand are the 6550s and KT88s?

Re: What are you bringing to the Fest?

Anybody thinking about maybe bringing a speaker selector similar
to a Niles SVC-4 in order to facilitate A/B comparisons
for CF kit amps with 6550s, KT88s and KT120s?


note: Niles SVC-4 = 4 sets of speakers each with two amp A/B comparison.... :-k
