4.0 out of 5 stars Fuller format, tons of schematics, neat Fender Deluxe mods, 20 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Aspen Pittman: The Tube Amp Book (Spiral-bound)
I've got the 3rd and fourth editions of this book plus this one, bought for me as a gift. This is in ring binder-type format, so is easy to have open on the bench. However many of the schematics are on a CD, which precludes the anoraky fun of browsing through the schematics in a book.(Yeah, sad, I know.) Each edition has some new features and articles, and this one features some Fender amp mods by Brinsley Schwartz. Worth getting for these alone, the guy knows a lot of useful stuff about amps, and writes in a very accessible way. Less about kinkless tetrodes, and more about what happens if you change this cap or that resisitor.
Aspen naturally gives his own Groove Tubes a good plug, (though I have never liked them,)and writes interestingly about some of his favourite amps.Probably the only off-net source for older schematics covering a wide range of makes and types.
Another bit of essential info kit.
