Description

This guidebook shows owners and dreamers the basics of getting the best sound possible out of their Fender amp with simple and advanced modifications. These include essential and fundamental tips like selecting tubes, capacitors, pots, and other electronic equipment, as well as biasing and setting up your amp. It also covers great hot-rodding enhancements to give you the tone of the pros at your fingertips, such as making one channel into an overdrive channel, modifying tone controls, making one channel either a Marshall or Vox channel (changing preamp and tone arrangement—not a permanent, destructive mod), building splitter boxes to run two amps simultaneously, creating splitter speaker setups within one amp, building the perfect gig amp (something light and portable, but with big sound, like an early Mesa Boogie), and more.

The author

Jeffrey Falla modified his first amp at the age of 13 and soon after built his first amp from parts he salvaged from old jukeboxes. Today he builds ToneTron amps for a small clientele. While he still plays live shows, most of his time is spent experimenting with sound in his Minneapolis workshop.
