Default Valve amp "master class"

Elector Magazine announced a few months back that they would soon be published in the US. I subscribed back then, but have yet to see any magazines. They do however send their "newsletter" to my email box every few weeks.

The latest newsletter contained considerable information related to their usual content, but there was also an advert for a valve amplifier "master class" taught by Menno van der Veen. Might be interesting for those in that corner of the world if it didn't just turn into a sales pitch for Plitron / Amplimo OPT's.

Menno was plugging this pretty heavily at ETF last year. Hopefully, it's based more on rigorous engineering and less on the odd Tantric/Kaballah stuff he seems to be pushing these days. I get nervous when I hear the words "amplifier" and "semen" used in the same sentence.

Hmmm. You might check the ETF website to see if they've got his presentation online.
