Re: ??? QUESTIONS FOR BOB AT CARVERFEST 09' ???

Will Bob ever be visiting the New England area? If so, there's something I'd like him to see/hear, here.
Take care,

Re: ??? QUESTIONS FOR BOB AT CARVERFEST 09' ???

I wish I could afford to go to one of these fests and personally meet the man that created my M-400 cubes. Oh, and to thank him for years of musical pleasure. If he only knew what my original M-400a that I bought new in 1981 has been through and that is cranking right now has been through I think even he would be amazed!! Ah, and this M-400a hasn't had one bit of work done to it either. One day soon though it will be sent odd to Rita to have her work her magic on. It really deserver it after all these years. Maybe if Bob is around at the time, he may even sign it for me.

Thanks Bob for 28 years of Carver sound

P.S.Just wondering if Bob created the M-400a to match the Klipsch Lascala? I tell ya, they are a match made in Music Heaven

I asked Bob a question, do tubes rule? His answer, yes. :-"
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Re: ??? QUESTIONS FOR BOB AT CARVERFEST 09' ???

One of the Q's I asked Bob at this years CF that pops out as worth sharing was as Bob was autographing Kingmans Phase linear unit (Boy was Kingman cheesin) I asked Bob if when all of this got started if he ever imagined he would ever be asked for his autograph by friends and fans as well as requests to personally autograph many, many pieces of gear that already had his last name on them?
Bob responded by saying "Heavens no! not in a million years! The thought never crossed my mind that any of this could happen much less many of my friends having Carverfest for all of us to enjoy." He then said "Remember... this all started in a coffee can with some spare parts I had laying around in my dorm room when I was just a kid!"

He is such a humble guy, and I can say that is so wonderful because when you meet people that are "famous" or well known like I have being in racing for 20+ years, quite often they become so full of themselves it's just sickening
