There aren't any schematics on that page. Just pictures of the amps, and I don't know enough to follow it just from pictures. At least with schematics I've got a few people that could interpret for me.

Re: CarverFest 20w Tube Amp Schematics & Pictograms

I was asked about a schematic and parts list for the CF amp. What I had saved was just the photo's of the sheets. Then I found these above, posted last by Mike which are better than what I had.

I've heard questions raised about the way the last mods have been implimented and what was removed or not. Looking at these drawings, I can see where it'd be easy for somebody to mix up what should and shouldn't be done.

I think a nicely drawn, last version schematic should be done. I can do it, just not real quick. Has anybody already done something better that's not posted?

Out of respect for the design, incomplete and illegible should be replaced by a complete and well done treatment I would think. Any other thoughts or help guys?

Ha..ha...

Actually Mike, most of what's above is far better than what I had here saved. The worse above is what I quickly drew up as we were starting the build. Just quick drawings on graph paper, trying to show some of the physical placement. Kind of embarrassing to look at years later as representing the amp.

I'd just like to pull it together better and have it done justice. Good little amps needless to say!

Mark

PS...first pulled up the beginning of a thread where some links were broken and thought nothing for schematics was up any more. Then later found these.

Re: CarverFest 20w Tube Amp Schematics & Pictograms

I'm sitting here tonight in my office just digging my little CF amp, LucasLabs pre, Alesis Monitor Ones driven by my office PC. I've been going to the library and ripping CDs to my SSD drive. I've managed to rip alot of Porcupine Tree, Steely Dan, Rush, Cobbie Callait, and a bunch of the Celtic Women who have their own albums.

great amp uncle Bob! thanks
