Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
George Alessandro's amps differ from many of those in what have come to be called the 'boutique' market, partly because his designs are less directly based on the usual classic vintage tube amps (tweed Fenders, Marshall JTMs, Vox AC30s . . .) than most others, and partly because he has so closely aligned his work with the esthetics of the high-end tube audio world. Read the first page

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Image Quality Ruins Book's One Attribute May 7 2004
Aspen Pittman, whom I have met and talked to at several industry conventions such as NAMM and AES, is not a highly technical individual: in fact I doubt he even understands basic electronics. His book is therefore a compilation of a lot of schematics and (on Fenders) parts layouts for guitar amplifiers, and a few articles written by various tech writers, some of which are of merit and some of which aren't.
The schematics are not very legible and many contain known errors. For this price, he could at least get that part right. I don't recommend this book unless you cannot find a needed schematic or layout anywhere else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Image quality issues Jan. 20 2004
By Simon E
Be warned that the image quality of the circuit schematics on the cd-rom will leave you angry and frustrated as many of them are simply illegible. The values of resistors et al are IMPOSSIBLE to see in many of them.
Quite a few of the printed schematics in the book are extremely hard to read (even with a magnifying glass.)
I have the 4.1 edition and will have to hang onto it as the images printed there for the most part are superior to those in the new edition. It's a shame that the Quality Control is so poor in this critical/essential publication. Did no-one check this out before it was shipped for production?
