~WEIRD BUILD TIME~

This was a Carvin Nomad 112 combo that was gotten cheap with problems, gutted of its board, and reconfigured as a proper build in the AC30 vein. I used the original transformers which meant a few deviations from standard, namely solid state rectification and higher plate voltages which really push the headroom up quite a bit. Kept the original Carvin 12" speaker which sounds to me to be a vintage 30 knockoff. Sounds great. Built just because....may keep it, may sell it. It's a club show ripper, for sure.

^ That's way fucking cool, Tony. I've got a soft spot for Carvin amps so it's nice you were able to use something from the original.

Cheers. It was a lot of fun and I learned a hell of a lot. Next one will be better.
