There is no secret to building a great amp. Let us show you the way. Amp classes generally fill pretty quickly so don't wait too long.  Regardless of your skill level, you will be successful and walk out with a great amp and a ton of new knowledge. We won't let you fail. Have no fear!

Welcome to Bruce Egnater's Amp Building Classes website. Click on the tabs above to see what we are all about.

Our friend Shawn Tubbs did this wonderful video of the 20 watt class amp. Identical to the one you can build. Thank you Shawn.

The cost for the building class is $1550 for the 20 watt (2x6V6) model or $1700 for the 50 watt (2xEL34) version. Both are identical except for the tubes and transformers. This is the total for everything and you walk out with the amp in the photos. We supply all the parts, tools, head box etc. We even feed you lunch. It does NOT include  travel or lodging costs so you need to get yourself there and find a place to stay. Payment can be made through PayPal, check or MO in the mail or credit card. You must phone to use the credit card at 248-541-9100. Fill out the information on the contact page so we may send you the official registration form or email me at Also, click on the "BUILD CLASS" tab at the top for more information.

Copyright © BRUCE EGNATER. All rights reserved.

We have been offering the classes for over 14 years. In that time, we have met countless interesting folks, made quite a few new friends hopefully helped some to continue on to bigger and better things. This is a fantastic experience for anyone interested in guitar amplifiers either as a hobby or even a potential career. In fact, some of our students have gone on to make careers in the Music business and we would like to think we helped inspire them.  We hope you can attend some day and join our family of amp builders.

Thanks!!   Bruce and  Terri Egnater
