An Invaluable Resource for the Dedicated Ampliophile 9 août 2012
Par The Jaundiced Eye - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
First, let me apologize for using the word "ampliophile", but I couldn't resist.

I loved this book, read it from cover to cover, and use it almost daily as a valuable resource.....however, I can see where it might not appeal to someone with only a casual interest in vintage amplifiers, perhaps looking for something to lay on the coffee table to appear "hip" when their (grand) children's friends visit.

The photographs are wonderful, but much of the text is admittedly rather esoteric and technical, delving into the circuit design of each amp ("A look inside the 5E9-A displays 5E3-related elements such as a split-phase cathodyne inverter, cathode-biased 6V6's, a 5Y3 rectifier, and the three 16uF filter caps on the left of the eyelet board.....") and the author uses rather abstract terms to describe sound and performance: "warm, dark, woody, etc." that may be reminiscent of an evaluation by a wine taster, and may not make much sense to someone who is simply nostalgic about old amplifiers. To those of us who actually restore and collect old amps, however, the technical insights are manna from heaven.

That said, the book offers significant rewards to all readers. Many of the photos are inside-views of the cabinets and chassis, with close-ups of the circuitry, speakers, cabinet labels, etc. that are simply not available elsewhere. The text, while somewhat forbidding and technical at times, offers wonderful insights into the evolution of guitar amplifiers, their use by famous musicians, and the unique characteristics of each amp. These photos and stories more than compensate for any technical pedantry and, in my opinion, make this book an absolute must for anyone with any level of interest in vintage guitars, amplifiers, and the performers who so ably used them to create the musical heritage we all hold so dear.

Nice, but some key omissions. 8 mai 2012
Par goozemann - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is your typical coffee table book on guitar amps. Nice color pics throughout, and accomanying text is a good read. However there are several key omissions making this less comprehensive than it could be. For example, The Mesa Dual/Triple Rectifier is nowhere to be seen, as well as the Peavey 5150, both of which have achieved classic status in the amp world especially for hard rock and metal. Also nowhere to be found is Sunn, legendary amps of the late 60s, and Matamp (Orange is there, but still it would have been cool to have Matamp along with the Orange. All in all not bad but could have been a bit more thorough.

ampophiles dreams 23 janvier 2013
Par Amazon customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
A great guide by an obvious ampophile ( did I invent that word? ) there are many many guitar amplifiers past and present, picking 61 amps for consideration shouldn't be hard. Dave Hunter introduces us to the first and famous in amplifiers. Yes ,the ubiquitous FENDER " TWINS" "REVERBS" , " Champs" " Deluxe" " Supers" Bassman" et all are covered in great detail, as are the Marshall. Vox, Rickenbacker, Ampeg , Mesa Boogie, and many other more familiar names, but what about the FLOT A TONE ? the Ray Butts echosonic ? the MAESTRO GA-45 t ? the beautiful rare brown Fender VIBROVERB 6G16 ? or the OAHU 23 OK TONE MASTER ? the technical details of the inner workings of these gems leaves nothing to be desired you will learn not just what tubes and speakers etc that make up the sound , but what substitutes are required to give specific sound. To those who think this is too technical, MR HUNTER uses plenty of beautiful and evocative images of what sounds come from these amps words like " creamy" " Chocolatey" " sparkling" " bell like" "bovine" are just a few. There will be a few crybabies who say "but the latest XYZ 77770000 or whatever isn't in here!" shut up and learn about these great amplifiers, The ones legends are made from! And as Billy Gibbons says in his back cover blurb, it is an " attractive book" as well .

A lot of old friends. 11 décembre 2012

Format: Relié Achat vérifié
After reading this I felt liked I'd been reunited with a friends from my past. The pictures were great and the info on each amp helped to fill in some blanks. Bought this for my son who plays.

Nice Pictures, Lots Of Amps - Ignore The Words 2 juin 2012
Par Quiero Cafe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This isn't a history of the guitar amplifier. To be fair, it really doesn't claim to be. This is a series of magazine articles about amps that the author has deemed to be noteworthy. It doesn't really gel as a book. The first problem is that each article is written as if it was an English class essay assignment. Almost all of them end with a closing-thought type of line, such as "and when you think about it, that's all the treble you may ever need" (not an actual line). This quickly sets your teeth on edge. The second problem is that if you don't know what a "long-tailed pair" is, or the difference between a 6V6 and 6L6 tube, or 1000 other technical terms, this book is not going to enlighten you. It really should have begun with a "Tube Amp Tech For Dummies" section. On the other hand, maybe that's an outside assignment for the uninitiated. However, he'll introduce terms in one article that he then explains many articles later. Meaning this book is a series of articles that weren't written to be read in series. However, if you're congealing articles into a book, perhaps you can take the time to go ahead and make a linear sequence out of the information. Which brings up the third, and somewhat most major failing of the book - it's not really a history of anything. Filling two pages with technical babble about the innards of some audio tech, though it might be useful, isn't telling a story that interests the casual reader. Some of the articles do contain a couple of paragraphs about the origin of the amp, or the company, or the capacitor maker's sister's daughter's boyfriend or something. But a lot of what would pass for history is the story of some schmuck's history with the pictured amp. Joe Schlabotnik found this amp for 20 bucks in a Vegas pawn shop. Who gives a flaming fig? Or worse, the author's own experience with the amp in some sort of ancient life. A real history would actually seek to find a story behind whatever is being pictured. Not the case here. Beyond this is the author's rampant bias against any non-tube amp. I know this is touchy subject #1 for guitar tone nerds, but come on. A preference for the quirks of primitive equipment is Baby Duck Syndrome taken to ridiculous extremes. Early amp makers couldn't get the distortion bugs out of their amp designs, despite trying like heck to do so. Then kids made music using that defect as a feature and now THAT sound is the pure, glorious sound that god himself meant for wire-wrapped magnets to make, and any other sound is thin tinny dung not worthy to be found on the bottom of a pair of worn sneakers. I should have known I was in for that sort of nonsense when the introduction claims vinyl to be the superior audio reproduction format. That always makes my eyes roll so far back in my head that I get a good view of my brain stem. But hey...subjectivity. The fourth failing of this book is that the author really tries hard to WRITE. Some of his sentences are so artificially constructed that you just want to put the book right down and go to your happy place. Plus he clearly had a thesaurus on standby. Not to say he's a bad writer, but he just shouldn't try so hard.

But, on the upside, there are a lot of amps covered. And the pictures are nice.
