Ever wondered why a Stratocaster sounds different to a Jazzmaster or why vintage Les Pauls are so prized, how overdrive pedals work or why valve amps give you such great tone? Then this is the course for you!
We are proud to present this exciting new programme hosted by our Music department.
This is a 10 week programme, during which we’ll take an in-depth look at the tools of your trade. As well as informal lectures and seminars there will be plenty of opportunities to gain personal experience with top-quality vintage and contemporary equipment in the studio environment. There will also be DIY workshops for setting up guitars, upgrading pickups and pots, making basic pedals and recording techniques. No previous experience of luthiery or electronics is required – and a passion for all things guitar is more important than technical proficiency.
If you have any further questions about this course please email email@example.com and we'll be happy to help.
This course runs from 6.30-9pm on Wednesdays from 26 April - 28 June 2017
