Chicago School Of Guitar Making : Amps
a number of years, Mojotone has been working with the world renown techs and
programs and The Chicago School of Guitar Making, in an effort to provide
quality amplifier kits for their Tube Amp Building Class.
Instructed by Ian
Schneller, owner of Specimen products and Chief Instructor/Founder of the
Chicago School of Guitar Making, the class aims to provide its students with an
experience that will lay the foundation for hopefully many years of tweaking,
building, and modding. A beginner course
is even offered, wherein students will build a recreation of the classic Fender
Tweed Champ circuit over the course of two days. Each student is given a workbench stocked
with all of the tools and supplies necessary to successfully complete the
build. Not only this, but Schneller is
an amp veteran whose expertise is practically unparalleled in the world of tube
amp building instruction.
“...we use Mojotone kits because they are simply the most
faithful to the original designs,” says Schneller.
This, of course, is a point we are very
proud of here at Mojotone. The simple
fact that someone as seasoned as Schneller has chosen to rely on us for a
number of years is extremely rewarding and motivates us to continue our mission
of providing quality parts and accurate circuit reproductions of some of the
most iconic guitar amplifiers in history.
Being able to see eye to eye with someone like Ian Schneller on a
philosophical level has allowed us to build a reliable business relationship
with one another and to help one another continue to improve over the years.
If you are looking to improve your tech
skills, or even if you are looking to start from scratch on building or
repairing amps, the courses at the Chicago School of Guitar Making are a
must. We highly recommend working with
Ian and his team as they will undoubtedly give you the tools you need to hone
this new or improved skill set.
