Amped: The Illustrated History of the World's Greatest Amplifiers

Dave Hunter


 

Guitarists love amps—really love them. Amplifiers could glance uninteresting to the remainder of the realm, yet to guitarists they're filled with mystique, romance, and rockin' sound. And whereas there are lots of strong-selling electrical guitar histories on hand, here is the 1st illustrated heritage of the electrical guitar’s ally, the amp.
 
World-famous guitar and amp historian Dave Hunter tells the tale of 60 of the best amps ever equipped, together with classics from Fender, Marshall, Vox, the weird EchoSonic that created Elvis' sound, and the final word esoteric $75,000+ Dumble amps. the tale is illustrated with enormous quantities of technical photographs, infrequent machines, catalogs, memorabilia, and the amps of the celebrities, from Jimi Hendrix to Stevie Ray Vaughan to Eric Clapton.
 
This is a booklet guitarists will drool over.
