Seriously, if you're religious, pray for me So today i posted this to Craigslist Athens... (1)....
Just kidding.

I'm curious if there are a few guys/gals in town with some money and interest in making a champ!

I'm formulating the reading materials and schedule in my mind, and would share once I'm done if any other guys here wanna try doing a class.

Wish me luck! I don't really need the stress/ money/ whatever, I'm just tired of not having friends in town to talk about this junk with So today i posted this to Craigslist Athens... (2)

Good luck to you brother! If I was closer I would pitch in! I have been looking for someone in the Houston Tx. area to "talk shop" with since none of my friends are into building either. Wishing you much success!

4. Turn on and play???

May I suggest Turn on and check circuit ie. explain voltages/bias/power dissipation calculation...as simply as poss.

Also the safety talk should be at the start, people should see an amp like a toaster...perfectly safe until you poke items in there. So today i posted this to Craigslist Athens... (4)

All the best with the venture the first time is always a steep learning curve...for a teacher.

Thanks guys!

Telenut, great suggestions and I agree! I think if you can remember back to your beginning, turn on and play (cause darnit they better work or it's on me!) is probably enough to blow their minds for a few months.

Well, I know it's Sunday and all, but no takers yet!

In way other news, I finished my logo for the tweed bface Princeton.

Andy, I would love to learn the skill and get a new amp, but living all the way up in Spartanburg and being disabled at this time, I will have to wait a while. Later when I am ready, would you consider consulting and advising? on one of those of something just a little bigger!
Nice looking stuff, and my son has a full wood shop and owes me a favor, I see a cabinet in his future!! LOL

I wish I was closer too. The only thing that has been holding me back to build an amp is getting someone to teach me.

That should easily work out for you.100 bucks and they go home with the ability to make a amp. , No brainer to me

Haha! Thanks guys.

Two legit takers and a friend who has asked to take it. I think we're a go once I finish some shows in NYC beginning of next month So today i posted this to Craigslist Athens... (18)

Should be fun! I'm thinking about a surprise gift at the end....(maybe old 12ax7 or something)

Bonus pic of my band Music Tapes, we're doing three nights of sold out shows in Harlem!
Ok, tickets were free, but still! We're trying hard to get into the theatre scene. (I'm the dork playing orchestra chimes and drums at the same time!)

I might be interested in a future class. I'd love to learn how to build an amp and learning on a champ would help me care for my Princeton. Maybe after my wife's semester gets going.
