I am not necessarily a Carver fan, actually probably best described as having no opinion, but the trip and experience sound wonderful.  Are the dates known yet?

Thanks much.  Two weeks is a long time; is a shorter stay permitted and will it work?

I've missed....none. Been to every one. Bob is one of the great gentlemen of audio. Not to be missed by audio fans. This is the premier audio event anywhere. Where else can you build a one off tube amp under the tutelage of a master?

I have made to 10 of them, and I come from Ottawa Canada to NC.

Great time is had by all, what a great extended family.

e have build some nice things at Carverfest, a 20 wpc tubed power amp and a Lucas  tubed line stage (preamp)

My fist Carverfest was for 2 days, now I manage to stay for 6/7 days.

So do not wary that you can not make the whole 2 weeks, just make sure that you make it for a couple of days or more, you will enjoy your time there.
