Inside Tube Amps is clearly
written in a musician friendly style. It is a complete manual on tube
driven guitar amplifiers and covers design, modification,
troubleshooting, and repairs. Everything is here from building your own
Class A amp from scratch to sorting out power supplies, filter caps,
and power transformers. There are charts, graphs and nicely finished
illustrations throughout the book which help with explanation of the
text. (Vintage Guitar Magazine)
Torres has taken his many
years of experience as a technician and designer and has condensed it
all into one easy to read, musician friendly manual. I learned more
cool stuff about amps in 10 minutes with this book then I've learned in
my entire musical life. Everything from tube selection
to power transformers to even building an entire Class A amplifier is
covered without the rocket science
math and theory that would leave most of us running for cover under our
acoustic guitars. (20th
Century Guitar Magazine)
