There is no shortage of information in books and the internet about valve amplifiers, but this is no substitute for having a mentor who can give you hands on training in the skills involved in building valve technology. Interest in valve amplifiers continues to grow, but where do you go to get practical training in this fascinating field?
I am excited to introduce the Valve Heaven Amp School.
We have a history at Valve Heaven of passing on years of experience in valve technology to the next generation. This 2-day weekend training school is designed to provide you with comprehensive valve theory combined with skills mentoring as you construct your own 15W Lamington valve guitar amplifier head.
I have a passion to share the skills I have gained over many years as a
technician designing, building and servicing
valve amplifiers. I
developed the weekend
The course is centred around the construction of the Valve Heaven Lamington design – a 15W valve guitar amp which delivers warm cleans and a huge overdrive tone. Students will receive a good grounding in basic valve theory, coupled with a fantastic shared learning experience as each person “learns by doing” during the construction of their own 15W valve amplifier.
Classes will be strictly limited in size to 10 students so that each student gets personal attention and learning is maximised.
