Damn, that's twice you've caught me doing that, Gary.
I must be getting senile, or stupiderer.

Re: Carverfest Amp Tube Supernova

angelo, I think you are asking for problems using those tubes!!! way too many bad ones that will take out some of your equipment it is hooked to if one goes supernova!! I lost a pre because of one going south!! so I would only fire those amps up with some new tubes!! running some tube amp docters tubes in mine per mark & they sound great!! cost about $20 each but better then frying some of your stuff when they blow!! just my opinion but well worth the price vs damaging some of your equipment!! not worth saving a few $ in my opinion but thats up to you buddy!! hope all your amps work out well!! :-k
