Format: Paperback
This book is a great read and tells you all you need to know to create your own effects, Pre-amps etc. with one minor draw back: since it's re-release in 2001 the sole company who create one of the components essential to a large number of the projects in this book has since ended production and these items are now obsolete. There is one alternative component but it is incredibly difficult to find and I have not yet found a supplier in the UK.
A lot of the components used in this book are from the arc and some as dead as the dinosaurs but all except that one problem part have modern counterparts readily available.
THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL! There is ONE Company mentioned in the book that sell the projects kit-form as well as the boards and components separately - they seem to have a job-lot of this now infamous component and will ship worldwide at a reasonable rate and who are very friendly. No web address is given in the book but they do now have a site that a quick search on the web will reveal.

Arguably the best DIY guitar effects book around, suitable for both beginners and more experienced stompbox enthusiasts. Covers all aspects of stompbox construction, from construction and PCB layouts, to parts considerations and reading/understanding schematics. A Must For All!!

Is a good book to learn from but it's is very old and you'll need a record player to listen to the floppy lp in the front of the book. You can learn about makeing the projects but it's very hard to make them as the printed circuit board designes. I manege to work out the vero board layout from the schematics but it was tricky. If you wanted to etch your own board in not sure how you would do it, you would have to draw it by hand or try and replicate it on the computer but as the pages are yellow by age, you can't just photocopy it.
Don't get me wrong, it's a good book for guitarists with a nice section on how to re wire a guitar.

All in all I'm not disipointed with this purchase

This book is very outdated, first published in 1975, you can get many schematics from the internet which have been updated to work with modern components, saying that the book does have some very useful info on how the circuits work & useful build & component advice but as to building the projects you're better off looking on the web.

Outdated. It has been said before in other reviews but I took a chance as I am new to electronics and wanted to learn about it from a musician point of view. They were right, it is informative but shallow and a lot of the components mentioned are no longer made. Disappointing really.
