I bought this book in 96 when I very first got an interest in guitar electronics and Ive used it as a reference ever since. I decided to give it another read through the other day as I am trying to get back into the music electronics thing.The first chapter, on reading schematics, is very helpful to the beginner, given that it discusses the components that make up a circuit, what they look like on a schematic and what theyre used for.

Not so much what they do and why, but thats not really the focus of this book.In fact, this book is light on theory. You wont be able to design your own circuits, necessarily, nor will you understand why these projects do what they do. However, there is a lot to be gleaned, information wise, from reading this book. You can infer a lot from studying the projects. Its in the process of trying to build some of these projects that the trouble starts. The biggest complaint I have and that Ive heard from others is that most if not all of the IC chips used in these projects are obsolete.

This means that, right out of the gate, youre going to need to know or learn how to source work alike components. The projects work and are fun to build and can be very useful to you as a musician, but a lot more goes into it than might appear to be the case based upon reading this book.Ever since I first read this, Ive wanted to build the PAIA Electronics Quadrafuzz, one of the projects included. Its a rack mount fuzz effect that splits your signal into four bandwidths and allows you to adjust the fuzz for each. Pretty freaking cool if youre a fuzz geek like me.

PAIA offers a kit for the Quadrafuzz (as well as other kits), which would be the only way Id tackle that thing. Some day, Ill get that kit and build me a Quadrafuzz.Aside from some outdated information, this book can be a useful resource for folks interested in music electronics.
