Format: Paperback
Live Sound For Musicians is a well-written book. It obviously comes from a man who has set up many PA systems, and has learned "what not to do" from first-hand experience. I purchased the book about a year after I bought and began using my first PA system, and I found the book to be quite helpful. However, if you've been on the road with your band for 5 years, the content may be a bit too basic, since you will already have been forced to use trial-and-error to solve many of the problems discussed in the book. Rudy Trubitt's use of past experience and humor make the book easy and pleasant to read. I highly recommend it for anyone getting into the details of live sound reinforcement.

I knew absolutley nothing about live sound before I bought this book, but now I actually have some knowledge of it. Its a great book for newbies, but don't get it if you've got even a moderate amount of experience setting up PA systems. Now that I've read it I really understand how to wire, test, and run a small PA system. My only gripe is that it doesn't go to in depth on miking drums, which I kind of hoped it would do. Then again, for most small venues, drum mikes aren't necessary. It also spens a lot of time on feedback control, which isn't a bad thing, it just seems to be one of the main focuses of the book.

If you just want to run the PA and not take 2 years out of your life to get a degree and learn a ton of new terminology, then this book is for you! It is very beginner friendly. Anyone can walk through the pages of this book and learn to run a sound system.

A beginners guide to live sound. A very easy read for non technicial people. Written by the same guy who wrote the Mackie Compact Mixer book which is a more detailed book.
