(Music Maker)Written in a concise, yet accessible and in-depth form, the book offers lots of information in a handy portable package. It works well for teachers, beginner and intermediate students, even specialists in guitar amplification. (Vintage Guitar Magazine)Tipbook Amplifiers and Effects would seem to be a book written exclusively for electric guitarists, but it aint. Sure, it has all the electric-guitar info you would expect, but it also has chapters on acoustics amps, P.A. systems, mics and pickups, and effect processors, all of which apply to the acoustic. Topics such as acoustic-amp speakers, phase relationships, feedback, and amp testing are all covered. A ton of info, and theres a little something for everyone!
