This looks like an interesting book, I already have a couple of great Amp books including The Soul Of Tone (an amazing book about Fender amps), but I like how this one covers all the classic amps. Might have to get this now too!
World-famous guitar and amp historian Dave Hunter tells the story of 60 of the greatest amps ever built, including classics from Fender, Marshall, Vox, the bizarre EchoSonic that created Elvis’ sound, and the ultimate esoteric $75,000+ Dumble amps.
More than sixty classic amps are featured, including Leo Fender’s iconic tweed Bassman, the sonorous Vox AC30, Jim Marshall’s powerhouse stacks, Supro, Hiwatt, Orange, Mesa/Boogie, Alexander Dumble’s mad creations, Trainwreck, and many more. Plus some cool oddities, electrical freaks, and fascinating failures.
The story is illustrated with hundreds of photos, rare amps, catalogs, memorabilia and more. Photos of great guitar players and their amps abound, including Keith Richards, Jack White, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duane Allman, Eddie Van Halen and more.
