(Book). If you have questions about guitar amplifiers-how to fix them, how to restore them, or how to hot-rod them-this book has the answer. This book is written for the guitarist or collector who desires a common sense approach to understanding the essence of vintage tube amps and vintage tube tone. Not written for engineers, it does not contain engineering formulas, polar mathematic equations, or abbreviations that are assumed you should know. Gerald Weber, a regular columnist for Vintage Guitar magazine, shares the knowledge he has accumulated over the years of repairing and building his line of Kendrick amps.

While working as amp technician in NYC, this book very quickly became THE vintage amp Bible. Mr. Weber has amassed an incredible amount of truly useful information here. Anyone who owns an old Fender amp and knows which end of a soldering iron to hold (hint: it's the end that isn't hot) should own this book. Don't be afraid to get under the hood,... you WILL hear the difference (and love it). From the unabridged truth about biasing, to hot rodding tricks of the rich and famous, it's all in here! Just be careful who you loan your copy to,... I can't thank you enough Gerald Weber!
