Berkley, MI (February 27, 2008) - After reading about Egnater''s Amp Building Seminar on the forums and seeing some demos on YouTube, we decided we had to check it out for ourselves. Bruce Egnater offers two-day seminars where you build a JTM-45 type amp head that is modded with some extra Egnater goodness -- people are raving about the tone of these beauties and the fact that you get to build it yourself under Bruce''s watchful eye. We sent a staffer to his latest seminar so keep an eye out for an article about the experience, photo galleries of the build in progress and video segments featuring student interviews, snippets from the seminar, and more.

 

However, just like a parent who lets their kids open one tiny present on Christmas Eve, we felt like we had to let one video slip out early. Below is a video demo of the actual amp you build at the Egnater seminar. One of the students in the class, Pete Lacis, was cool enough to fire his up for the camera.

California has always been the place of dreams for young Americans: Hollywood, surf music, pop music, psychedelia, hot rods, biker culture, and glam metal. The Golden State’s only real pop-culture competition has traditionally been New York City, and we know that the beaches and forests are better on the Pacific side. Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring that, starting in 2035, all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state must be zero-emissions vehicles. Once again, Cali leads by example, and what once was unthinkable becomes reality. Strangely, this EV revolution reminds me of the emergence of the electric guitar.
