Tube Amp Books: About

Apr 02, East Bay J rated it it was amazing Shelves: I've been playing electric guitars through effects into guitar amplifiers for twenty six years but it's only in the last five that I've become interested in the electronic circuits that have made this happen. As this interest developed, I did what I so often have done and began to read books on the subject. Guitar amplifiers are particularly complicated beasts and The Guitar Amp Handbook has been instrumental in my grasp of just how it is a guitar amplifier does what it does.

Dave Hunter has a fr I've been playing electric guitars through effects into guitar amplifiers for twenty six years but it's only in the last five that I've become interested in the electronic circuits that have made this happen. Dave Hunter has a friendly, easy going writing style that communicates several complex concepts quite well.

He is able to be informative without going over anyone's head, speak to the layman without being condescending and be funny without being awkward or corny. So very few of the authors of books on music electronics are capable of adequate technical writing, including those who have Electrical Engineering degrees and have worked in the industry for decades.

Hunter communicates the concepts and ideas guitarists need to know to be able to make informed decisions about what amp to buy in a way that is completely effective. I cannot stress this enough.

The book itself is fantastic. Hunter tells you what the amp does then proceeds to break this process down to its various parts.

He discusses electrical components and what they do and addresses the issue of "mojo" in NOS new old stock tubes, capacitors, resistors, etc. Hunter also covers speakers, cabinets, wattage requirements and maintenance.

There are tons of excellent photographs and diagrams to reinforce the subject matter and a thorough and handy glossary to refer to as you read. One chapter details building your own amplifier from a kit.

There are also several interviews with various amplifier makers that are pretty interesting, considering many of the topics discussed in this book are echoed in these interviews.

This is not a technical manual, so techs might find this book redundant. However, anyone who wants to know what makes and amp tick and sing, roar, wail, etc.

Mar 28, Charles rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This book brushes the surface of just about every topic related to guitar amplification, tone, and all sorts of "voodoo" related to the topic. Although it is a lot to digest, the topics are well-divided, and I am being honest when I say that the book only hits the high-points of each topic.

Within each chapter, I believe one could write an entire other book at least , but the information is not so shallow to be useless. Also, Hunter's writing is easy to follow and he uses guitar-y phrases like This book brushes the surface of just about every topic related to guitar amplification, tone, and all sorts of "voodoo" related to the topic.
