Ampeg : The Story Behind the Sound is a book that anyone who is in the music business or interested in music or recording MUST read. Gregg Hopkins and Bill Moore did an unbelievable job of tracking down and producing the last word in Ampeg bass, guitar and amplifier facts, myths and legends. This book is worth the price for the pictures alone! Having been an Ampeg user (1966 B-15N amp and 1963 horizontal fretless electric bass) since 1975, I thought I knew quite a bit about Ampeg, but this book made me feel like a novice. If you now own, have ever owned, or know someone who owns any Ampeg equipment, this is THE bible of Ampeg information; from the invention of the amplified bass peg to the difficult decision by the Hull's to sell the company, and the pictures-did I mention the PICTURES! A roomfull of upright baby basses-incredible, breathtaking! You won't be able to put it down! For collectors and working musicians alike-this book has it all! Thanks to Gregg and Bill and all the folks who contributed info, stories and pictures to this awesome tome. An amazing read!
