The good news is, Weber tells you what a lot of the components in an amplifier do in terms that can be understood. E.G., leaving this capacitor out of a triode pre-amp circuit reduces the amplification of that circuit, and creates compression. Using the correct value on that resistor will set the DC current to exactly halfway between saturation (the maximum current that could possibly flow through the tube) and cutoff (the point at which NO current flows through the tube) is how one sets the bias of that tube. There's a lot of useful information for somebody who wants to understand what's going on.

The bad news is, he doesn't always complete the job. Some of his explanations really *aren't* for beginners: they presume prior knowledge. Well, if you had that to begin with, you probably didn't need his explanation. Or, the part you didn't understand is explained elsewhere, and you'll have to piece it all together when you get to that part. Sometimes the figure he describes, which WAS there (I assume) in the original article describing how a pentode circuit operates, didn't get included in the book. That's simple oversight, and it rightfully comes across as half-fast. As he explains, he writes a monthly column for a guitar magazine and, when enough of those articles accumulate, he puts them in a new book. So, this book isn't organized, start to finish, to take you from one level of knowledge to another.

With that caveat aside, I really do like it when he explains things in a simple, useful way. Quite often, the way he does that makes it possible to arrive at a big picture. I AM accumulating knowledge in a piecemeal way, that I will need to organize on my own to arrive at a useful big picture. I can see myself writing explanations in the margins, or referencing other articles within the book, or elsewhere, that explain the part I didn't understand in the current article.

So, I'd say it's worthwhile for a beginner, and I'd definitely recommend it. But, he does leave a lot of room for improvement.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fountain of Amp Knowledge 3 janvier 2010
Par B. Costley - Publié sur
I'm a guitarist who likes to understand what's "under the hood" of guitar amps and do my own mods. This book is perfect for me, and I highly recommend it. The only distraction amongst the pages is the occasional (okay, more than occasional) error that should have been caught by a proofreader. There is one short chapter that is based on a schematic that is nowhere to be found in the book. As a longtime technical writer, I know that it is impossible to proof one's own work. Can't tell you how many times I've been caught red-faced over an elementary mistake. Don't let the sprinkling of these distractions deter you from buying the book. Gerald Weber knows his stuff and knows how to relate it to the novice. If you're a guitar player who is fussy about tone (don't know of one who isn't), this is a must read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book not entirely correct 23 octobre 2009

Some of the information is not correct but are based on opinion or interpretation of practical experience. Overall a decent book especially for want-to-be techs looking to learn about tube amps. Very good for guitarists looking to tweak existing gear they have. Not exactly accurate information about class A amplification from an engineering standpoint. What this book really has to offer most of all is the years of experience building and repairing amps that Mr. Weber possesses, and that is worth the price of the book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book for advanced techs, not beginners! 8 juillet 2014
Par Salvatore Gambino - Publié sur
I bought this book because I wanted to increase my abilities when it comes to customizing guitar amps for my clients. I was lucky and got it from a friend for $5 and wanted to let people know about it's for a more advanced tech. If you have no prior knowledge then you might want to start with Dave Funk's Tube Amp Workbook. Daves book is so much better. Here is the link to buy Dave Funk's workbook here on Amazon Dave Funk's Tube Amp Workbook: Complete Guide to Vintage Tube Amplifiers Volume 1 - Fender
1.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Fall For the Con 10 juillet 2014

Here's the problem. Gerald doesn't know much about anything. Half the information is just wrong. Now your problem is, which half? If you think this book is worth 5 stars then you are sorely mistaken and you've been duped by an expert con man.
