About this book

Electronics for Guitarists teaches the basic theory of operation and design principles of analog guitar signal processing circuits and amplifiers. The design and operation of common effects circuits such as tone controls, preamps, phasers, flangers, envelope followers, distortion and overdrives are covered, as are both solid-state amplifiers and power supplies. Written specifically for the guitarist, this book balances coverage of theoretical analysis and design while providing many examples of practical experimental circuits. The main thrust of the material is old school analog circuitry, focusing on:

  • Fundamental principles of transistors
  • Integrated circuit and vacuum tube-based amplifier operation
  • Theory and operation of typical guitar signal processing effects circuits

Electronics for Guitarists should be of interest to any musician that is interested in analog signal processing. The material covered is also useful to general electronics hobbyists, technologists and engineers that are interested in guitar and music-related electronics applications.
