(Music Pro Guide Books & DVDs). For players looking to move beyond a simple pedal board and combo amp, there is no more definitive book on the topic of advanced guitar rigs than this. Modern Guitar Rigs: The Tone Fanatic's Guide to Integrating Amps and Effects covers topics of interest to guitarists looking to build pro-level rigs, whether they're playing clubs at the indie band level, getting set for a major tour, heading into the studio to record a new album, or just searching for "ultimate tone." Modern Guitar Rigs explores advanced topics including: * Rack gear: multi-effects processors and dedicated signal processors, audio loopers, amp function switching systems, and MIDI foot controllers * Amp steups: wet/dry/wet configurations, rack-mounted tube preamps and power amps, stereo rigs, integrating pedals and rack gear, and floor-based loop systems * Guitar options: piezoelectric pickups and splitting guitar signals to multiple amps * Effect loops: choosing the right loop for your specific needs * Rig infrastructure: power conditioning, noise suppression, power attenuators, wireless systems, custom cabling, and equipment racks * Rigs of the stars: a look at the complex rigs used by many leading guitar players, including John Petrucci of Dream Theater, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Steven Wilson and John Wesley of Porcupine Tree * Interviews with leading custom rig builders, including the legendary Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics
