You've just gotten that new Marshall, Fender, or Matchless, and you're expecting to plug in and sound like Slash or Eric Johnson or one of your heroes with that impeccable tone. But that's not how it works. It takes months--even years--to develop your sound, and much of that comes from understanding how your tube amp functions.

Author Dave Hunter dives into that world to break down the nuts and bolts (literally) of what makes a tube amp work. There are chapters here on everything from the Signal Chain, Components and Circuit Stages to Speakers and Cabs, Sizes and Requirements, and even the knowledge it requires to build an amp.

Additionally, Hunter has interviewed some of the leading names in the building of amplifiers, including Mark Baier, Victor Mason, Reinhold Bogner, Steven Fryette, and many others.

Everything is covered in this terrific Hal Leonard resource. If you've ever struggled achieving that magic tone you hear in your head, buy this book and read it. It will get you a lot closer to that great sound you've always been looking for.
