The Guitar Amp Handbook

Understanding Tube Amplifiers and Getting Great Sounds

Series: Book
Publisher: Backbeat Books
Format: Softcover
Author: Dave Hunter

There's a huge amount of hype and mythology surrounding tube amplifiers in the guitar world. For years, experts have argued over the tiny details of exactly how they do what they do, and how their various components interact. What's undeniable is that, far more than being just a “loudness booster,” the unique combination of tubes, capacitors, resistors, and transformers in these amps can contribute enormously to the quality of sound derived from any electric guitar. In this thorough and authoritative book, Dave Hunter cuts through the marketing hyperbole, and the blind faith, and supplies all the information you need to choose the right amp, and get the best from it. The book also features exclusively conducted, in-depth interviews with leading figures in the tube amp-building world – including Ken Fischer, Mark Sampson, and Michael Zaite – and even provides full instructions on how to construct your own high-quality tube guitar amp from scratch.
