Electronics for Guitarists
Springer Science & Business Media, Apr 30, 2011 - Technology & Engineering - 304 pages
This book is written for the guitarist that would like to know how transistor and vacuum tube-based amplifiers, and how various circuits effects work. The main thrust of the material is old school analog circuitry, including heavy coverage of discrete transistors and diodes, classical filter circuits, and vacuum tube-based amplifiers. This book should be useful to electronics hobbyists, technologists and engineers that are interested in guitar-related applications.
