Event Details

An amplifier is the voice-box of the electric guitar and bass and plays a key roll in helping to create a player’s signature tone or sound. Understanding the inner workings of an amplifier allows the player to take a more active role in the development of their sound and be able to troubleshoot technical issues when they arise on stage or off.
In this course, the students will get to build their very own Tweed Champ Style Tube Amp, based on the beloved 5-watt amp from the 1950s. These amps were perfect for recording and were featured on a wide array of recordings from Joe Walsh’s “Rocky Mountain Way” all the way to Derek & the Dominos’ “Layla.” By taking this hands-on approach, the student will get to touch each part of the amplifier as well as learn how it contributes to the whole working device.

-Build your very own custom Tweed Champ Style 5-watt tube amp.
-Learn proper soldering techniques.
-Learn the concepts of sound creation and manipulation to create personalized sounds and or settings.
-Learn the technical aspects of the circuits that create the sounds.
