This past weekend I went to
a Tube Amplifier workshop at:
S P E C I M E N
The Chicago School of Guitar Making
Made a Fender champ amplifier and really enjoyed myself.
The kit came from Mojo Musical Supply.
There were eight of us in the class, mostly older guys 40 and 50 ish.
There was ample personal instruction. Lot's of time to ask questions. And time for jokes and guffaws.
Coffee and pastry in the morning. Lunch provided.
Perhaps it was a preview of heaven.
I was the only harp player and was shown how to tweak the amp for my harp preferences.
Stayed nearby in the Ukrainian Village area and within a 3 minute walk had access to a coffee shop that opened at 6 AM and a great neighborhood bar.
