May 27 Curious Recess

The Curiosity Club presents Nial McGaughey building Hovercraft Amplifiers. These are guitar and bass amp heads, often made with recycled and modified old amps. Hovercraft sometimes produces speaker cabinets to match. They are powered with vacuum tubes and they are loud! Vacuum tubes are an obsolete technology that many love. They have individualistic distortion when pushed, including that produced by magnetic non-linearity, and many people like that sound. A presentation of the Curiosity Club, you can tune into the free live webcast off the Core77 site or visit the talk and demonstration in person at Hand Eye Supply 23 NW 4th 6PM Free
