  1. Hello Web, and welcome to thecarversite.com. We're glad you're hear. There is a lot of information here, much technical know how, and a pretty good bunch of folks that are happy to help. We have an active tube contingent here, preamps, amps, buffers, cd players... I'm sure y'all will find plenty to chat about. My only foray into tubes is a buffer I run in my external processor loop. Once you get to Novice status, please consider uploading some pics of your gear in the Members Systems area. We all like pics of all kinds of audio gear. In the meantime, kick your shoes off, turn up the music, and welcome aboard.
  2. I'll be happy to get it for you.

  4. I'll concede a slight weight disadvantage.
  5. Five Alarm Funk, Big Smoke was released on June 26, 2020. "Five Alarm Funk is a horn-powered, percussion-fueled sonic and visual assault. Over 17 years of hard funking the band has burned up stages on four continents, released six studio albums and received two Juno Award nominations (Canadian Grammys). And this ride isn’t about to slow down. Five Alarm Funk is set to release their 7th studio album, Big Smoke in 2020. The 11 tracks get right to the roots of what Five Alarm Funk is all about: epic, intense arrangements, heavy groove and a ton of fun." You can read the rest of the review here...
  6. Luke Elliot, The Big Wind was released on May 8, 2020 "Born and based in New Jersey, this is Luke Elliot’s third album, another collection of brooding grandeur delivered in his deep tones, a bit like Nick Cave or even Jackie Leven at times. Recorded in Oslo with Swedish multi-instrumentalist Bebe Risenfors (a frequent Tom Waits collaborator) and Norwegian guitarist Freddy Holm, the title is a reference to the European storm which, on January 6, 1839, known as the Night of the Big Wind, swept across Ireland and the United Kingdom causing several hundred deaths and here swerving as a metaphor for a personal and professional maelstrom."
  7. Very nice Charlie. I have no need, so I'll sit this one out, but thank you for offering it up!
  8. Ish there ever a schlow time in the liquor b-b-b-bishnesh? I shdo all I shcan to prevent it. (hic!)
  9. Not too mention that alcohol and OCCD can be a very expensive combination.
  10. Le MOOD, Adventures In Stereo was released on March 15, 2020. “Adventures In Stereo,” Le MOOD’s debut full-length LP, is a perfectly crafted indie pop record - upbeat, insightful, infectious, retro, and even a bit psychedelic. The songs are deeply melodic, full of energy and emotion, and showcase the band’s superb songwriting skills. “Adventures In Stereo” was released on Outright Rock Records on CD and limited edition white vinyl. The first single off the album, “Winning Hand,” is a transcendent power-pop anthem about life in the band. The album also features the songs “Silent Night” and “Poor Young & Gifted.” You can read the rest of the review here...

    Thank you Brian, and I'm sorry to hear about your sister-in-law. Prayers, good thoughts, chi, mojo, and good juju...
  12. Lettuce, Resonate was released on May 8, 2020. "Trailblazing future-funk squad Lettuce returns with the ambitious Resonate, their second full-length LP in under a year’s time, and the seventh of their illustrious career. Continuing their unicorn evolution in sound, the six-piece points the spacecraft skyward with another searing slab of innovative instrumental dance music." You can read the rest of the review here...
