Thanks everybody!

I am stoked about it all, and found myself speechless when Bob called me. Duh! I didn't recognize his voice right away. I had actually left saturday afternoon. The voice said I had fogotten something so immediately my mind was flashing through how I had packed my stuff to see if I had really left something behind. So, yeah, I was completely taken by surprise! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Rabbit says he has the whole thing on video so perhaps we will soon see how it went.

Congratulations, Rodney. Those amps are beautiful, and they are genuine historical artifacts--one of the first 3 of a new Bob Carver design!!!

When Bob called you Sunday, he was calling on my new iPhone 3G--one of the few cell phones that had signal out there. I was standing roght there too, and ToyMaker is right--Bob's reaction to your reaction was priceless! I hope TNRabbit can post the video soon, so everyone can see it.

You've got some GREAT amps there, bro--we're all terribly jealous. Now you need to start SERIOUSLY thinking about getting speakers that are up to the task.

Martin Logans... Martin Logans... Martin Logans...

Just a hint. ;)

Surry I mised you at the 'Fest. I came in around 10:30 Sunday morning. Had a GREAT time, even though I was only there about 30 hours, but it was WELL worth the drive.

By the way, we all took a vote at CarverFest, and it was unanimous--you can't attend next year unless you bring your new Tube Amps... :D

Have fun with them. You are one VERY lucky fellow.

Why do I suddenly feel completely unworthy of being on here?

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

He may have won them, but I have them. Possession is 9/10's of the law, right? Hehe.....

You know it's funny, when I introduced myself to weitrhino, I swear he told his name was Rocky and I remember thinking, ok good name 'cause he looks like a Rocky. So, after the drawing people are talking about some guy named Rodney and I'm thinking, who the hell is this Rodney guy...LOL

Even funnier, we live in the same general area and didn't know it. Small world folks, small world.

Well, I'm pretty sure his name is Rodney ... at least that is what I've been calling him for close to a year now ... Actually, just read the liner notes from Morglbl's album Grotesk and he is credited as Rodney on there.

BTW Jesse, what is your impression of those amps?
