Stunning. You bringing those beauties to Carverfest? :-k

Re: Carver "Silver Four" Monoblock project

Thanks guys... The wife has made what I feel is an honestly good suggestion about the side panels. Her idea is to fill the sides with brushed aluminum
instead of wood. Her thought is that with the brightwork around the tube bases and the trim band around the transformer covers, that the wood looks
to busy and out of place. She also noted that other companies like Rogue(not by name) use brushed aluminum as accent pieces and she loves the way
the material looks. She also said that it would tie in to the more contemporary look I have been going after, and then said "and besides, I have not seen
any of your other gear that Bob designed using wood."

After caring for the wood she gave me when talking my language :lol: \:D/ :lol: , I told her that I would give it a try. What say you guys?

My opinion?

Listen to the woman.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Good women are hard to find.
Even the best feel it is their job to keep your ass humble. :rolleyes:

When you find one that accepts your stupid mood swings over a hobby, it is good to encourage that interest. Make her feel like you are into this to please her. :rolleyes:


Either that or her lawyer will soon be playing with your amps. :lol: :lol:

Re: Carver "Silver Four" Monoblock project

Hell they look totally fucking Bitch-en man no matter what the heck you do! I like the wood but would like the Brushed aluminum too - I think you hit it either way but the wood says I am not like the other amps - I am me and I am AWESOME so hold your winky and dream of TUBES glowing sparkles down your tingling body!!! :-"
