AMPEG musical equipment: a major role in popular music
The creations of the AMPEG musical instrument company have played a major role in the evolution of popular music: their bass pickup permitted upright basses to compete with the horn sections of the Big Band era; their "flip-top" Portaflex B-15 bass amplifier helped shape the Motown sound; and the awesome thunder of their 300-watt SVT amps bowled over huge crowds at rock concerts. AMPEG: THE STORY BEHIND THE SOUND, just picked "Book of the Year" by Vintage Guitar magazine, tells the tale of this extraordinary company on its 50th anniversary, weaving together the American success story of the company founder, the role of key inventors and inventions, and the development of innovative music equipment products -- all against the backgrounds of American pop music and corporate competition in the music industry. The result provides something of interest to musicians, collectors, and those who lived part of the history.

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!

5.0 von 5 Sternen If You Own or are 'Into' Vintage Ampegs, This Book Is a Must! 17. August 2013
Von Dan the Man - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While the writing is a little obtuse at times the content is outstanding tho it's all as of 1999. Certainly this doesn't affect the historical information on the company nor it's products but some of the vacuum tube availability has certainly changed. The books is more or less chronological with extensive sections inserted in the overall story for products/technologies and product time-lines. I found the appendix especially usefull since it deals with how to decode component manufacturers and the EIA (created by military during WW-II) date encoding as well as Ampeg serial number sequencing and encoding whihc actually changed a couple times over the years. The appendix also includes usefull discussion on tubes, repair and parts/tubes, some key service bulletin references for trouble shooting some known nitty problems, and some good contact info. If you're considering this book you'll want to check out sites like fliptops.net, mojotone and antique electronic supply, among others. Though definately not a technical or troubleshooting guide to Ampeg products, If you've visited any of those sites in the vein of fixing/refurbing an Ampeg, orjust have general interest in the history, products or politics revolving around Ampeg I think you will enjoy reading this book. Lots of good insights and information into the products and the business of what was arguably one of the (if not THE) very finest makers of instrument amplifiers and the changing climate and culture over the years as well as Ampeg's stodgy and slow, then meteroic rise ...eventual near demise ...it's re-rise ...and it's status at every stage along the way ...through 1999.

I've been an Ampeg owner since 1956 having owned many different models. Few people today know where the name Ampeg came from. "Amplifier" and "Peg". Everett Hull, a hard of hearing upright bass player, designed the first pick up replacing the peg of a string bass with a long peg that had a micorphone installed on the end of it which positioned the mic near the sound post of the bass. It was the best bass pick up for decades. It is no longer manufactured. Ampeg also produced thousands of Baby Basses which was an electronic solid body upright bass, much smaller than a string bass, but with a full string bass fret board. Although the Baby Bass is no longer produced they are still popular with the South American tango bands and Salsa bands in the U.S. The Baby Bass has a sound that exactdly duplicates the sound of a string bass. Today there are many clones on the market, but none has that Ampeg sound.

I bought this to replace a copy that I lost, the books covers all known facts of the Ampeg company. I have a number of ampeg products and use them. these are anywhere from the 15 watt reverborocket to the 100+watt V-4 for bass and guitar,key board and speaker cabs.wanted to know the history, these amps and cabs sound amazing.
