The Euphoria is his take on that elusive tone and feel made famous by "D style Amplifiers" - smooth creaminess yet crunchy when you need it to be, yet the tonality is much more transparent than other "D sounding" pedals. Very responsive tone controls that interact with the pedal - they don't just "color the sound. The controls actually affect the response and feel of the pedal, just like a great tube amp. If you love the sound of your clean tone, and just wish you could have more "hair on the note... a little bit of grit without any change in tonality, the Euphoria will do that with ease. PLUS it's extremely flexible... with the toggle switch in the down position you'll get a hint of fuzz along with the overdrive, it's reminiscent of the tones that "Eric Johnson" may use. With the toggle in the up position the tonality is super smooth, creamy yet crunchy when you dig into the strings. This is reminiscent to the famous "D style tone, though it's really much, much more than that. In the center position, the toggle will give you tons of crunch, or roll the gain back a bit and push the volume up and you have a superior clean boost with a 2 band EQ that's extremely transparent, but variable so you can actually turn it into an awesome treble booster just by cranking up the treble and turning the bass down. Features: Hand made in the U.S.A. High grade film capacitors and resistors picked for their superior sound and response Completely true bypass Battery connection and 9v power jack (barrel plug like Boss) Power draw: 8mA 4 knobs - Volume/gain/bass/treble Switch goes from overdrive setting to distortion setting (top: creamy tone, middle: crunchy tone, bottom, light fuzz tone Advanced Gain Structure, amazing array of sounds. 2.5" x 4.5" (63.5mm x 114.3mm) Very transparent Very dynamic Completely original circuitry.

What is the best electric guitar amplifier money can buy?

hypothetically lets say money is not an option, whats the best guitar amp? im just curious

"Best" at what? Tone? Man, that's really subjective.

There's an amp called a Trainwreck that was designed by a guy named Ken Fischer that's almost legendary. Supposedly while he was designed it, he would move tubes and components around a mm at a time and then place them where he though they sounded the best.

Brad Paisley, David Lindley, and other have said this was the holy grail of amps.

Sadly, Ken passed away in 2006. There are several companies building clones now but the people who have played the originals say nothing comes close. If you can find one for sale now they're going for between $30-40,000!

Another legendary amp is the Dumble, made by Howard Dumble. They've been described as a really great Fender on steroids. These amps were played by David Lindley (again, what an amp ho!), Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayer, Santana, and Eric Johnson. And again, Howard was very much into component placement and signal path routing. Each amp was literally custom built for a customer. But, his business model wasn't the greatest. You sent him $10-15,000 for the amp, and then waited 6 months to 1 year. If someone with a bigger name than you came along and wanted one, he would sell your amp to them. If you called him and bugged him, he would just send your money back (kind of like the soup nazi on Seinfield). But, if you got one, it was an amazing experience. I got to play on a Dumble Overdrive Special, and it was like the guitar was playing itself.

Supposedly, there are fewer than 300 of them in existance now. Since the 80's, Howard has been covering the circuits in epoxy to keep people from ripping off his design. However, some have been "de-gooped" and copied. The most famous Dumble clones are made by Fuchs amps, and are available for about 1/10th the cost (Joe Bonamassa is a big Fuchs amp user).

These amps are in the clean to mid-gain class, so if you're a blues or pop or rock player you'll probably love 'em. If you're a metal guy, then they ain't gonna do it for you. You'd probably want to try to seek out a Lee Jackson modified Marshall from the 80's. Lee was one of the original amp hot-rodders, and eventually started selling his own line of amps (Perfect Connection, Metaltronix, and he designed for Ampeg for a while). Lee's in Austin now, supposedly working on the ultimate digital/tube hybrid amp.

If you can find on of his modded Marshalls, you'll pay $5-8000 for one.

FInally, I've gotta give props to Kendrick Amplifiers. Gerald Weber is the owner and head amp guru there (and a fan of my band The Rhythm Dawgs even though I play a digital amp). Gerald probably knows more about vintage Fender amps than anyone else out there, and is now building his own signature model for around $5000 that's one of the sweetest amps I've ever heard. Being a technical guy, I usually hate the artsy-fartsy descriptions people use when describing tone, but that amp truely has what I consider a 3-d sound that just envelops you.

My ultimate amp that I've owned? Believe it or not, it was a Peavey Ultra 60 1-12 combo from the late 80's. There was just something about the little amp that really let me play well. I'm still kicking myself in the head for selling that thing.

I supposed that if I was going to buy another amp right now, and had a few thousand to throw down on it, I'd be looking at a Mesa Boogie Roadster or a Marshall JVM. Just my opinions.

Greetings from Austin, Tx

Ken

The review deals separately with each book and is recommended to buy in a specific order to grow your knowledge in step with his experience in construction.

Learn to play online guitar

Kevin O'Connor of London for energy has created a series of books under the main title of "The Ultimate Tone." These books are truly unique and carefully designed for the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) amateur guitar boutique tube amp and amplifier manufacturer. Books have a homemade "feel" and ... All illustrations are hand-copy books are printed on 8.5? x11? paper and bound with clear plastic spines plastic sheeting. There are six books in the series now with the latest published in the spring of 2008. You may want to buy the entire series in one go and get a savings modest, but I think you should consider buying one at a time and digest the fly, creating projects along the road. A key point, though ... does not necessarily buy them in numerical order. I recommend the following sequence:

  1. The ultimate tone volume 3 - Generations of Tone
  2. Volume Ultimate Tone 5 - Capture tone
  3. The ultimate tone volume 2 - Systems Approach to Stage Sound Nirvana
  4. The Ultimate Tone Volume 4 - Techniques advanced modern design guitar amplifier
  5. The Ultimate Tone - Modifying and Custom Building Tube Guitar Amplifiers
  6. Volume tone last 6 - Tone timeless built for the future today

The last tone Volume 3 - Generations of Tone

This is the most important book of the series for the first tube amp builder.

The Chapters 2 through 4 lay the foundations for building good DIY tube amplifier Filling in good electrical ground connections of the art, clothing and other techniques lead wiring, including mechanical design assembly methods as terminal strips, turret and eyelet boards.

Subsequent chapters each selection amplifier iconic "particular, each amplifier iconic be a prototype example of the amplifiers in its class, and discussed in detail about the circuit topology, unique tonal characteristics and defects that are fatal that the product is known for. Kevin provides original schemes, and then shows how to apply the techniques detailed in previous chapters to improve performance and reliability of the icon without damaging the pitch. The scheme is redrawn, and solutions are provided mechanical designs are developed for each chapter a complete, stand-alone project to build DIY amplifier.

This process is repeated for several variations of the Champ in Chapter 5 (this chapter great influence on my own project single-ended amplifier), then in quick succession: the Bassman, Plexi, 800, Bull Dog, AC-30 amplifiers Portaflex, SVT, Bass Master, special custom guitar Mate, Herzog and Laney are treated.

If you can only buy one book for your hobby DIY guitar amp who had wholeheartedly recommend this.

The Ultimate Tone Volume 5 - Capture tone

Volume 5 collects in Volume 3 left off, with a project-oriented approach and some sophisticated solutions DIY tube amplifier for guitar and bass.

The book begins with a chapter structure to the operation of vacuum tube called a "tube sound," followed by a chapter on the electronics of the guitar and collecting features.

The next two chapters are small projects: Sigma for purposes of switching and Triple X to change the amplifier.

Chapters 5 and 6 are in transformers ... important components, but it made me yawn, sorry.

Beginning with Chapter 7, all stops are pulled out and is planned the sky ... Mayor (200W), Soma 84 (EL84 amplifier), Standard (London Power Standard Preamp 1995 with a 50W amplifier with four valves power), Doppelsonde (mixed feeding tube types), AX84 (discussion on the original goal of a low power amplifier), Kelly (4 6V6s 50W) and several other smaller scale projects.

One of the favorite projects I did was return to work based on Kevin's tube preamp pedal incomparable Hotbox Chapter 16. I built this pedal in a "true-to-peer style" really (ie, terminal strips) in a tube pedal box Doug Hoffman substituting a Baxandall tone stack and return to work the previous values to be more Dumble-esqe (type non-human resources management).

What would you do to an amplifier that matches the style of Yngwie Malmsteen? See Chapter 18, "the Swede."

The ultimate tone volume 2 - Approach Systems to Nirvana's sound stage

Volume 2 is not project oriented. The bulk of the book, chapters 2 to 5 source addresses tricks supply and an overview of power amplifiers, including tube, solid state and hybrid power amplifiers. Chapter 3, amplifiers tube, has very practical information on changes and corrections to Marshall and Fender circuit bias.

Like the first and last chapters of volume 2 the best. The first chapter is a brief discussion of the sound stages and how to configure a computer on stage for the best audience / band experience. The last chapter 6, is called "The Pillars of tone" and in this chapter the tone of the main contributors to the block level design tube amplifier system Guitar examined one by one and Kevin provided a very valuable tone shaping along the preamp or amplifier.

The Ultimate Tone Volume 4 - Advanced design for modern guitar amp

This is the book you want to buy if you feel the need to engage deeply with the power scaling technology that Kevin has developed. Increased power, coined and registered by Kevin, is how you can get distortion aspects power amplifier (as opposed to the preamp distortion) in tone in the bedroom volume levels. Volume 4 is not project-oriented DIY but explores the issues, including mitigation, expansion of power (both up and down), compression and power management, addressed by Modern designers guitar tube amp.

That said, the second to last chapter in Volume 4 might be important for a group larger builders enthusiasts ... design philosophy. In this chapter, Kevin provides a hierarchical design process could be used to make decisions fundamental how about your next project.

Ultimate Tone - Modifying and Custom Building Tube Guitar Amplifiers

No volume number in the title of this book was the first. Personally, I bought it for completeness. I specifically wanted information the 'perfect effects loop, but the loop itself is incorporated into a project in Volume 5. TUT also has excellent material and the signal reverberations a change of method is not explained in the other volumes. The first half introduces TUT / Overview of the tube amplifier systems, power supplies and memorandum focuses on changes preamplifier and power amplifiers to the commercial (eg, Marshall / Fender) ... if you are totally new to electronics tube you might want to buy this volume 1 in the same time as volume 3.

The tone volume last 6 - Tone timeless built for the future Today

In many ways, Volume 6 is a continuation and extension of the material in Volume 4, which introduces increased power. In Volume 6 of a new version of "direct control" of Powerscaling appears that was presented in Volume 4, but purged with integrated circuits and applies to "give" and maintain control and Vol 6. The new scale circuits have many advantages for a builder yourself as increased immunity to noise and less sensitivity to the layout, etc.

I applied the new DC level to a cloning project Trainwreck and was very impressed with the improvement of "playability" at lower volumes ... without changing the Trainwreck Express circuit is too strong for household use, they need to be cranked to get sweet tones is known for.

One of the chapters in Volume 6 covers Dumble amplifiers ... something I was hoping as many of my hobby projects focus on the circuits. I found this short chapter to be a good introduction to the general architecture of Dumble amplifiers, written from the point of view of the evolution of the first amplifiers Alexander Dumble modified standard started doing, but felt the chapter was short discussion of some of the most important nuances of the models more Dumble.

Volume 6 also has a lot of other materials in it, including a great tutorial on designing high power amplifiers for output and a great chapter on designs for high gain amplifier circuits real-world reference and detailed.

In summary ...

Kevin's books has a very empirical approach. He invites you to leave out the convention, in some cases and not be afraid to try combinations of pipes or tubes traction and in all cases clearly explains what is good and points out why they would not be right all the examples in the books are very practical and certainly has the DIYer in mind that you are writing.

Kevin body of work is truly encyclopedic in nature, and bearing in mind that a bright feature by the absence of his books is any kind of indexing ... This is compounded by the fact that Kevin constantly refers to earlier letters instead of repeating the same in a new volume, and it is very difficult to put your finger on the model, even with the other book in hand. Maybe search technology as Google's ability to find protected content could be put to good use in this case and offer a kind of 'auto-index' in the web of all books of Kevin without actually giving away the book yes. Or better yet, how about an electronic book format of the entire collection of books by Kevin TUT ... I think all readers of electronic books include search capabilities ... Kevin and hand-drawn diagrams probably appropriate scale and be easily read on electronic paper displays these devices offer.
