B-913The Ultimate Tone, Volume 5 by Kevin O'Connor
Every part of your system contributes to your Ultimate Tone, so every part is important. TUT5 delineates, in clear language, the function of each electronic component in a circuit, and how alterations to the value of each part affect the final sound. Gain stage voicing, interstage attenuator optimization, sustain restoration for clean and distorted tones, power amp and preamp "tone generators", simple boost pedals, amp selectors and power conditioners are all covered, with designs using off-the-shelf parts.

B-932The Ultimate Tone, Volume 4 by Kevin O'Connor
Outlines, in schematic form, many approaches that achieve the goal of power scaling, super scaling and power management. A complete history and discourse on the technology outlines how to implement multiple power scale controls, alternative circuit forms and system impacts. Further tutorials outline the methods for super scaling, with both fixed and variable boost ratios, using both solid-state and tube methods.

B-962The Guitar Pickup Handbook by Dave Hunter
The Start Of Your Sound
by Dave Hunter
Pickups are where it all starts. Wood, strings, hardware, and fingers all interact to produce the note, but the pickup translates it into the signal that makes it electric. The Guitar Pickup Handbook provides an exhaustive and authoritative tonal guide to this most essential of components.
Dave Hunter traces the history and development of the pickup, from the 1920s to the present day, explaining magnet type, size, and structure, and the many different types of coils.
