The workshop went well. 3 people attended, and three valve amplifiers were birthed :cool:

I took some photos:

Musicworx has gave a fantastic space to host the workshop. Hiring Occasions supplied the tables, chairs and extension cords. When I arrived at the venue I was met with this sight



Conrad built the two mono valve buffers
