Re: Carverfest Amp Tube Supernova

So, Martin; you're saying you're still using that tube & it is running 40 degrees lower than the others? My guess would be permanent damage to that tube.....?

??? Do not understand "sauce".....if in some way you are asking for the "recipe".... :lol: see below--- :D

There is a post I made a while back with tube options for the Carverfest 20W amp. In it is a link for the Mullard re-issues for $78.00 for a matched quad.

Cheers!~

Re: Carverfest Amp Tube Supernova

Just kicked back after two grueling weeks of preparing for my territory review I presented today. Before I put the recliner in the final kicked back position I glance down and see the Supernova Fairy #-o dancing all around that number four tube on one of my amps.

Crapola, I just ordered some 6922's from the TubeStore. Guess I'll be ordering again and those Mullards sooner than later.

Re: Carverfest Amp Tube Supernova

I seriously think it's the tube sockets.

Sorry you're having the same troubles.
