LOL. I'm sure me airing my situation will help him sell more custom amps.

Who's next folks? Who wants something akin to what I got? Come on, get your wallets out. You know you want a custom carver amp after seeing what a wonderful job they did building mine! 8)

Don't worry... it'll amplify sound and play music. Anything beyond that is doubtful. Yes, it will probably look like shit. Yes, it'll take over a year to complete and yes it will probably cost nearly double the original agreed upon price... but who cares?! He's BOB CARVER and he pays attention to me! \:D/

Put your money where your mouthes are people. Who wants to buy this amp? Make me a reasonable offer through ebay. Offers off ebay (and old junky VWs) won't be considered.

Ok, I have a very fair deal to offer... and we will stand behind this offer....

We (Alex and I) are offering (2 Brand New Tube 20x20 amplifiers), Either 20x20 or 40w mono-blocked ea, in equal trade for your amplifier.

We will build you 2 brand new amplifiers from scratch, in trade for the one you have on eBay.
Each of these amplifiers are priced at $2,100 now.

Alex has built 15 of these amplifiers for other forum members thus far, and does an AMAZING job.
No worries about paint and chassis work, We built all the chassis from scratch, had them powder coated, and use brushed black anodized transformer covers.
All parts are brand new off the shelf.

The only thing you would have to do is buy your own tubes, as they are subjective.
I will pay reasonable shipping of your amp to FL, you pay reasonable shipping of the tube amps to NY.

Here are photos of Alex's amplifiers.

I`m glad you did that because I was thinking the same trade but would HATE to give up the amps I BUILT.

Hey James, what a very nice offer to make.

Now we'll see what this asshole is really made of.

If he just wants a pretty amp that works you've given him that option and a very generous offer at that.

If he just wants to create bullshit & trash Bob, let's get rid of him.

Gee james that's such a fantastic offer. <rolleyes> <lol>

I'm really not interested in trading a one of a kind 100wpc carver custom amplifier for a 20wpc prebuilt, heathkit style amp (or two 40w monos) without any tubes, made by some random guy named alex (on his moms kitchen table) with parts from the parts express catolgue.

To even suggest such a trade is retarded. :-k

At least I can listen to the carver amp.

Throw in $5000 cash and I'll think about the trade.
