Suffice it to say that this is another book loaded with good information, spelled out in clear and concise language that the average "person on the street" can understand. I have all 5 of Gerald's books; I believe this one may be his second in the series. I have seen some folks complain of some repetitions in his books, but this is to be expected with books compiled from articles written for magazines, and not edited for book use. No biggie. If you need good books written for people who know nothing about tube guitar amplifiers, or just really good reference books for your own projects, I couldn't recommend any better ones. There are a number of good electronics and tube tech books out there, but many are written for designers and the electronics "whiz" who understand all the complicated math involved. These books only cover the simplest of math formulas that a third grader can understand. Good book. Buy it if you need this sort of thing; you won't be disappointed.
guitar tube amps in use by musicians. There are many procedures mentioned
for amp modifications and tips on fine tuning various circuits. In many
cases, schematics illustrate the changes in circuits, for easy reference.
The Desk Top Reference of Hip Vintage Guitar Amps offers much more usable material. This book does offer ideas for player and tech, but does not go
into the detail,nor cover the ground of the first book. It's nice to have for ideas, but not my "go to" reference.
