- The classes are usually held twice a week during the evenings and are around 2 hours each. The actual class time will be determined once everyone’s schedules have been compared.
- No prior knowledge of circuitry, tools, or any other electronics is required. The course is designed to teach anyone to be a tech. That being said, people that do have a grasp of these subjects are able to take the course to learn new techniques, sharpen their skills, and have a source of advice for questions they may have.
Twice a year, the Analog Lab offers a complete technical hands-on mentoring program for those individuals who have an interest in being a professional gear tech or gear designer. Classes meet twice a week for three months and covers subjects such as electronic safety, components, circuit design (using examples from classic analog synths), etc. Each student chooses their own final repair or build project so you come away with a new or restored piece of gear! Jeff Blenkinsopp, The Sonic Wizard, administers classes and has been involved with analog synthesizers and their design and repair for more than 30 years.

You will leave the course with a “real world” education that you can’t get anywhere else!
