Fundamentals of Guitar Amplifier: System Design

In stock

by Richard Kuehnel

Books about guitar amplifier electronics usually focus on individual circuits: preamp stages, tone stacks, phase inverters, the power amp, and power supply. The design of a guitar amplifier as a complete system, however, is more than the natural consequence of putting these pieces together. Fundamentals of Guitar Amplifier System Design presents a structured, top-down approach to crafting a complete guitar amplifier, including

  • formulating the concept for a new amp,
  • evaluating possible features,
  • setting audio interface signal levels,
  • laying out a basic architecture,
  • developing a system-level audio model,
  • designing individual stages to match the model,
  • shaping the system's frequency-response profile,
  • facilitating the evolutionary development of future designs, and
  • executing a post-design checklist to identify mistakes.

It has been said that the process of guitar amplifier design is like a cooking recipe, like flavors that you are mixing. This book is about mixing these flavors to achieve rewarding sonic results.
