European Triode Festival (ETF) has been a yearly event for several years (since 2000, I think). It’s an event where (most likely) all vacuum tube lover will gather from around the world. And off course, all are DIY product, from amplifier to speaker (even turntable also).
Beside listening music, they also held some seminars. You can see, hear, and meet famous name like Jean Hiraga, Morgan Jones, Lynn Olson, Per Lundahl (Lundahl Transformers), Brian Sowther (Sowther Transformers), Steve Bench, Guido Tent (Tentlabs), Allen Wright (VSE), Peter van Willenswaard (Stereophile), Pieter Treurniet (Tribute Transformers), Tim de Paravicini (EAR/YOSHINO) and John Boskie (TubeCAD).
DHTRob has a very nice shoot. I Googled around and I picked some photos from ETF 2007 and published here. Please visit his site to see more or Google around to find more.
