Default BUILD YOUR OWN CIGAR BOX AMP - Intro to Electronics Workshop! - 04-22-2011, 12:47 PM

Attention guitar players!
Due to the overwhelming success of our past clinics, we are proud to once again offer our educational class...

BUILD YOUR OWN PRACTICE AMP - Intro to Electronics Workshop

Is guitar amplifier electronics a mystery to you?
Have you ever dreamed of building your own amp?
Would you like to learn about the different components of amplification?
Would you like to have a small practice amp to bring with you on vacation or outdoors?
Would you like to try your hand at soldering a circuit?


Amplifiers can be broken down into different components. Join us for this educational and hands-on workshop where you will get a great introduction to guitar amplifier technology and have a chance to actually build your own practice amp. You'll learn to read a schematic as well as assemble and solder your own working amplifier.

WE supply you with all the parts. WE teach you what each component does. WE help you build your own - YOU leave the class with a working amp!

Read what our alumni had to say:

"Thanks again Brian for another very enjoyable evening, learned a lot and feel very accomplished! All the best, Dave"

ďThank YOU! I had a blast! I didnít know anything about electronics, but after this class I feel like I have enough information to try this project again on my own. Iím really impressed with your studio as well. Itís a beautiful space! I appreciate your patience with all my questions and look forward to taking other classes. Keep up the good work! Cheers! Filomena"

"Great workshop, I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot, too. Iíll send a pic when I am finished with the enclosure for the amp. See you next week at the guitar class! Best, Craig"

"I had a great time building my amp last night. I also learned how to solder without burning down anything. I look forward to your next workshop. -Jun"
