Guitar Effects 101

Its Alive!
Build Your Own Effect Pedal!
Where:  Hive76 (915  Spring Garden)
When:  Monday, December 7th
Cost:  $50

Hive76 has wanted to host an introductory electronics class for some time now.   But instead of teaching folks how to solder together some dinky LED circuit,  we decided to teach them how to make vintage guitar effect pedals! 

Whether you are an old hand on the DIY electronics scene, or if you have never touched a soldering iron before,  you will leave this class with some learnings about electronics, invention, and music, and, best of all, your very own home-brewed Tube Screamer clone.

Open to all abilities,  ages 14+.

Music Effects Study Group this Monday

On Monday the 19th, we’ll be having our second monthly Guitar Effects and Synthesizer Study Group.  Please stop by 915 Spring Garden at 7:30PM and bring your own musical project to work on or show off.  If you don’t have a project, we’ll dig one up for you and get you started. 

This event is free and open to people of all stripes and abilities.

Music Night This Monday

On Monday the 21st, we’ll be having our first ever DIY music night. Anyone with an interest in music –whether its assembling analog effect pedals, designing custom MIDI plug-ins, or modding up a fretless bass — is welcome. Come with your own personal secret project, team up with like minds, or get some guidance from our resident experts. There will be copious supplies of common electronic components (no digikey necessary), several computer workstations, and a good deal of geeky comraderie for inspiration and assistance. This study-group/workshop is open to novices and pros alike.

And feel free to bring a guitar/synth/childrens-toy to jam out on!
