Re: Custom amp created by Bob Carver

What exactly are you trying to gain from all of this? It sounds as though it would cost more in shipping to send the amp back to Bob then it would cost to have your problems fixed locally, assuming there's nothing operationally wrong with the amp. Get some estimates then go after Mr Carver for a partial refund to cover the costs. Finding a reasonable solution that works for both of you is key to resolving this...

I don't think his intention is to fix it.....he would rather keep whining about it- :rolleyes:

Re: Custom amp created by Bob Carver

What I'm hoping to gain is the real story behind the amp. Why was it so shoddily built, who built it exactly and most importantly... I want bob to own up to this whole thing... and ...maybe even apologize for the sh*tty paint and leaving out the LED defeat switch.

I imagine that an acknowledgement and an apology are long shots but that's what I'm after.

If Bob chooses to refund a portion of the amps price so I can have it painted properly and have an LED defeat switch installed... he knows my paypal address.

Re: Custom amp created by Bob Carver

Now I know why I am having trouble sleeping at night, I have this same dream over and over again where Bob is chasing me with a knife and calling me d0n :rolleyes: . I thought this puppy was laid to rest a week ago. ](*,)

I agree but if he apologizes and makes good monetarily, I'll let this slide.

I agree. This is a business deal between you and Bob. It would have went a lot smoother if you had told Bob how great it sounded first.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

I'll answer for him, FUCK NO!!!

Re: Custom amp created by Bob Carver

dOn, your constant berating of Bob on this forum is not going to get you what you want. As you can see, you're not getting much support from others here. You need to call Bob and work this out with him or take some other recourse. Sorry you feel so dissatisfied. Can we lock this thread already?

Re: Custom amp created by Bob Carver

Lock this thread, it's only the sound that counts, etc. The man didn't delivery the product the seller was suppose to get, but oh it's Bob Carver and we can't have anybody talking smack about him, why? He's human too and makes mistakes like the rest of us. There's nothing wrong with airing dirty laundry here, keeps everyone honest. Obviously, he screwed up and should make it right.

Look at all the crap James got from a bunch of you for Carverfest shirts or the ribbons for Madmax. I don't recall anyone calling for those threads to be locked or worked out off the forum.

Oh boy.....you sure read that ass-backwards ! I was referring to the bells you have previously rung, on a very sour note. I don't believe that you'll be hearing anything conciliatory from Bob any time soon. Frankly, the colorful term.... "shit the bed" may well be applicable in your case. :wink:

Re: Custom amp created by Bob Carver

Jesse,
d0n does not need to work it out with us . He needs to work it out with Bob. Whining and crying here is not getting him anything except support from you. When you get fucked you have two choices let it go or file an action in small claims court. I am sure you have been there we all have. d0n needs to make a decision and see it through, many people here and on other forums have offered to help him with his problem for free. He now needs to help himself.
