A Desktop Reference to Hip Vintage Guitar Amps - 512 pages
If you could only get one amp book, this is the book that is most essential. Into its 5th printing, this reference book's dogear pages can be found on the service bench of almost every amp tech in America. It is written in very plain and easy to understand language. There is a glossary in the back of each chapter that explains any word that is not used in everyday conversation. There are 100's schematics that have been scanned and cleaned up by a digital artist. This process cost us more than $10,000! The Fender schematics are cleaner than the originals published by Fender!
The 500+ page tome covers important facts about speakers, transformers, biasing and even has a section showing how to convert a silverface Fender to a blackface. There are dozens of mods and tricks to juice up your amp, your Echoplex or your tube reverb unit.
