No Saturday Zoom Event

Saturday educational seminars by Scott Hinson and Mike Rothacher will not be broadcast on Zoom. However they will be recorded and posted to the burningampfestival.com website shortly after Burning Amp ends so you won't miss anything.

In other news, a t-shirt design has been finalized and a links to buy one will be posted in a few days.

T-shirts are straight cut and run true to size, not overly generous. I usually wear a Large but L in this shirt is snug on me (I have a 46" chest). So if you are between sizes you may want to size up.

As the day(s) approach, I am hoping to get a sense of the space for exhibitors. I am planning to bring a complete system, and need to scale things so we don't crowd anyone out (sharing, etc.). Also, some sense of whether multiple rooms can play music at reasonable volumes without disrupting others. I'm sure there will be pluses and minuses as there were at Ft. Mason, just different. We'll learn a lot on Saturday, but the truck will already be loaded.

Thanks, Skip
I'm sending Pa instead of me

When Albert Einstein was making the rounds of the speaker's circuit, he usually found himself eagerly longing to get back to his laboratory work. One night as they were driving to yet another rubber-chicken dinner, Einstein mentioned to his chauffeur (a man who somewhat resembled Einstein in looks & manner) that he was tired of speechmaking.

"I have an idea, boss," his chauffeur said. "I've heard you give this speech so many times. I'll bet I could give it for you."

Einstein laughed loudly and said, "Why not? Let's do it!"

When they arrived at the dinner, Einstein donned the chauffeur's cap and jacket and sat in the back of the room. The chauffeur gave a beautiful rendition of Einstein's speech and even answered a few questions expertly.

Then a supremely pompous professor asked an extremely esoteric question about anti-matter formation, digressing here and there to let everyone in the audience know that he was nobody's fool. Without missing a beat, the chauffeur fixed the professor with a steely stare and said, "Sir, the answer to that question is so simple that I will let my chauffeur, who is sitting in the back, answer it for me."

This will be my first time at Burning Amp, I'm very excited. I'll be driving down from Southern Oregon. I plan to bring a pair of prototype monoblocks I built based on the classic "Musician's Amplifier" from 1950, the first American version of a Williamson. The amps employ a compact PCB I had designed, along with Heyboer's excellent copies of the Peerless S-265-Q. I have some extra PCBs and transformers, and I'll have some schematics and a parts list on hand. Is this okay? Also, if I want to show them in the project room, do I need to bring my own table? I suppose there might be a way to hear them, but I'm sure there will be a lot of folks wanting to show off their stuff. ;-)

I assume this is in keeping with the spirit of the event, but if not, please let me know.
