Re: any chance of a carver rebirth?

Would like to see it but I don't think it will happen. It costs lots of money to invest in a name and now with Sunfire out there and doing well I don't think it would be a good buisness plan.

Though I am not in marketing and the Carver name goes a long way.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Re: any chance of a carver rebirth?

it just seems a waste of a great name to not try and bring it back, even as a subset of the sunfire family

Re: any chance of a carver rebirth?

Carver as it was "Carver Corp." will not be coming back.
The Corporation has been completely dissolved, and Bob has no intentions of bringing it back.

Having sold Sunfire Corp. in the last couple years, Bob is really enjoying the freedoms of NOT being the head of a huge corporation right now.

Now in his 60's, I really doubt he wants to start a whole new company. It's time to relax, sit back, reflect on all the amazing things he has done, and just listen to the music !!!

The good news is, he is still inventing new technologies for Sunfire, and he is also spending his personal time with his one true love... "TUBES"
In the last year, Bob has been designing and building a new set of tube amps, and has been selling them solely on eBay.
This is what he really loves to do, and from what he's said, this "garage style" production is much more fun, and exciting for him.

Tubes rule!

That is all, carry on.

Re: any chance of a carver rebirth?

I've got news for you, there's not much in the electronics world that is made in the USA anymore.

CARVERaudio (us) building the new Silver-7's will be the closest thing to a Carver rebirth.
