A guitar amp is as much responsible for the actual sound of an electric guitar as the guitar itself, but doesn't always get the attention it deserves. "The Guitar Amp Handbook" is a book aimed at taking the player - whether beginner, novice or professional - inside the amplifier to help them better understand the magic of that mysterious, often-neglected box that pumps out all the tone. "The Guitar Amp Handbook" will guide guitarists in selecting the best amplifier for their style of music, help them set-up that amp to sound its best, maintain and even modify it, and ultimately to craft the most responsive instrument possible from this 'other half' of the sound chain. More than all this, the book will provide tutorials, parts lists and diagrams to enable the reader to build a small range of popular classic-styled tube amps, and will talk to a selection of respected amp makers and designers about their craft, and their views on what goes into building a great amplifier.show more
