The Guitar Amp Handbook: Understanding Amplifiers and Getting Great Sounds Reviews
Amazing book to get a grip with how your tube amp is working and how they are made. Highly recommend to any tube amp user.
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 [...]
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 [...]
For anyone who plays electric guitar, bass, harmonica or other instrument through a tube amp this is a must read.Dave Hunter breaks down the topic into simple digestible pieces taking you through the most basic circuit to fool amplifiers of increasing sophistication.Cannot recommend enough for those seeking knowledge of tube amps and all their glory.
my amp is as much a part of my instrument as my guitar. time to actually figure out what is going on inside of the thing. but clearly i need to take some classes in electrical engineering.
A great introduction to tube guitar amps.The first chapter is pretty heavy on the electronics terminology, so it might be worth it to brush up on the basics before diving in.
