The Tone Fanatic's Guide to Integrating Amps and Effects by Scott Kahn

Montclair, NJ - March 20, 2014 - Hal Leonard Books, the musician’s best source of books on the music business, audio technology, instrument history, and more, has published Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition. This full-color, updated edition is the definitive book about building and playing advanced guitar rigs for players who want to move beyond a simple pedal board and combo amp. Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition, explores time-tested techniques and tools that any serious guitar player can draw upon to build a professional rig of their own.

"A guitar rig by my definition is the complete collection of tools used in delivering your sound. The rig includes your amp(s), speaker cabinets, effects pedals, and rack gear such as effects, tuners, loopers, wireless system, power conditioners, foot controllers and pedalboards, and all the other little stuff that ties it all together. A nice combo amp might be one component in your rig, but if that's all you've got, you have an amp, not a rig," says Kahn.

Whether you're playing clubs at the indie band level, getting set for a major tour, heading into the studio to record a new album, or just searching for “ultimate tone,” this revised and updated edition brings you the most current and effective sound-shaping tools and techniques, including:

Amp setups: integrating pedals and rack gear, wet/dry/wet configurations, modeling amps and profilers, rack-mounted amps, stereo rigs, and multiple-amp setups
Rack gear: multi-effects processors and dedicated signal processors, audio loopers, amp function switching systems, and MIDI foot controllers
Guitar options: piezoelectric pickups and splitting guitar signals to multiple amps
Effects loops: choosing the right loop for your specific needs
Rig infrastructure: power conditioning, noise suppression, power attenuators, wireless systems, custom cabling, and equipment racks
Rigs of the stars: a look at the complex rigs used by many leading guitar players, including John Petrucci of Dream Theater, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Steven Wilson and John Wesley of Porcupine Tree
Interviews with leading custom rig builders, including the legendary Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics
About the author:
