New guy here

Post by magnepanman » Thu Nov 05, 2009 9:41 am

Hello all!

Newly registered here though I've been lurking for quite some time, not new to Carver gear though. I bought my CT-7 and one of my M1.0t's new in '88 and they have performed flawlessly through the years and many pairs of speakers. I just picked up a 20 year old pair of Magnepan MGIIc'c for cheap (tweeter wires bad) and replaced all the wiring and have been enjoying them. The Maggie's are incredibly power hungry so I picked up another M1.0t off ebay and have the pair running mono into the Maggie's and I'm blown away by this combination every time I sit and listen.

Looking forward to participating and learning from you guys!
Thomas

Nice DW's!

I have a lowly Tama Rockstar kit I bought when they discontinued them 4-5 years ago. I have some pretty nice cymbals though, a mix of Sabian Paragons and Paiste Signatures.

Here's an older picture, stereo equipment in the background is before I got the Magnepans....

I'm a TN native, and I used to bicycle with a group of guys who were a few years older than me. I'd leave them behind on the hills & they started calling me "Rabbit".....hence, TNRabbit.
