B-891B-891Item ID: 001421The Ultimate Tone, Volume 3
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn't change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the "iconic" amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product.
