Richard Hightower is Chief Mentor/Consultant for ArcMind, a full-service software development company. Rick is a software engineer by training who specializes in software development tools and processes, and developing enterprise applications using J2EE, XML, UML, JDBC, SQL, and open source technologies. Formerly he was the Senior Software Engineer for Java Architecture at Intel's Enterprise Architecture Lab. Rick is the co-author of "Professional Jakarta Struts," and he contributed two chapters to the book "Mastering Tomcat,"
Rick has spoken at a variety of industry conferences and events, including JavaOne, TheServerSide.com Software Symposium JDJEdge, WebServicesEdge, and the Complete Programmer Network software symposiums.

Warner Onstine is a founder and CTO of Interface Guru, a leading Web Usability firm where he consults on back-end technology issues with specific emphasis on how technology and usability work together to present the user with an easy-to-use interface. Warner also runs his own custom development shop, Sandcast Software, which focuses on community and team-oriented software.
Warner got his first computer, a TI-99 4/A, when he was 9 and almost immediately attempted to program a game in Basic on it, which did not work. He stubbornly refuses to get rid of that machine though, along with his trusty NeXT Turbo MonoStation, upon which he got his first taste of Objective-C. This eventually led to Java, skipping right over C++.
His strong community background soon led him to open source, where he has had the chance to meet and interact with several incredible individuals from Jakarta and other open source communities. This also has helped him to keep an openeye on the trends that will soon shape the new landscape--one of his specialties.
Another skill he has is in assisting companies with making the right choices at the right time, utilizing XP, in-depth knowledge of their subject area, and the currently available tools germane to their problem. Warner is also a co-founder and President of the Tucson Java Users Group, which he helped form in 2001, which keeps him rather busy at times. Previously, Warner worked at eBlox, Inc. (a Web development company), Intalio, Inc. (a bay-area Business Process Management Server company), and the University of Arizona Main Library on the Digital Library Team.

Paul Visan is an expert J2EE developer. He serves as a Principal Software Engineer for eBlox, Inc, where he finds that open source tools are invaluable to his work. Paul is a proud Romanian native, now living in the heart of Tucson Arizona. He is a regular contributor to IBM's developerWorks, for which he has written a series of tutorials on Java Web Services. Paul would like to thank Andrew Barton, Nicholas Lesiecki, Tim Ryan, and Victoria McSherry for helping with this book.

Damon Payne currently works as the Microsoft Business Group manager for Centare Group, Ltd. in Milwaukee, WI.

His other professional interests include Mobile development, data persistence patterns, and product development. When not programming or speaking Damon enjoys raising his wonderful daughter, Brooke, home theater, and music.

Joseph D. Gradecki is a software engineer at Comprehensive Software Solutions, where he works on their SABIL product, a enterprise-levelsecurities processing system. He has built numerous dynamic, enterprise applications using Java, AspectJ, servlets, JSPs, Resin, MySQL, BroadVision, XML, and more. He is the author of Mastering JXTA and the coauthor of MySQL and Java Developer's Guide (with Mark Matthews and Jim Cole). Joeholds Bachelors and Masters degrees in Computer Science and is currently pursuing a Ph.D.

Kate Rhodes is a self-taught programmer, serial entrepreneur, and occasional musician with a Japanese nickname and an unstoppable urge to learn new things, solve new problems, and write open source apps. She's got too many pets, too many projects, and too little time. If she could afford an army of programming minions she'd have one.
She's ranked better than most and worse than some. She's worked in impressive places you've possibly heard of and unimpressive places you've never heard of. She's done some stuff she's very proud of and some she isn't. And so long as life keeps offering up interesting new challenges for her to learn from, she's happy. If you're overcome with curiosity you can always see what Kate and her wife are up to at www.masukomi.org.

Robert Watkins is a Brisbane, Australia-based software developer of nine years' experience. He's been called a programmer, a software engineer, an architect, and a few other things (many unprintable), but mostly ignores the titles and does what he has to do. These days he is mostly working in J2EE and related technologies, and is a passionate advocate of agile development techniques. When not working, he spends most of his time with his wife and twin children, and when he gets a chance, he takes time out to read Terry Pratchett novels. Robert is also oneof the developers on the CruiseControl project.

Erik Meade is an employee of Wells Fargo, who attended XPImmersionTwo, interviewed at XPImmersionThree, coached at XPImmersionFour, and hung out on the evenings of XPImmersionFive. He is the edior of junit.org and an evangelist of JUnit, Ant, CruiseControl, HttpUnit, Tomcat, and open source in general. He is also a contributor to JUnitPerf.

Gerald Weber has build guitar amps for years, the Kendrick Amps. These are copies of the original Fender tweeds. He's also built a few amps of his own. However, he's really no expert on the real issues as they relate to tube amps, even though he has a lot of good information.

Here are some examples of the misinformation I found in the book:

He states, in the first chapter, that the reason tubes amps sound so good, in the early days, is the fact that they used diode tubes in the early supplies. When current was drawn across the tube, it developed a voltage drop which causes the output tube voltage to sag, thereby causing a mid-rangey distortion type.

While the action (dropped voltage across the output tubes) is true, the explanation behind it, is not.

The real issue, here, is the fact that the power supplies, back then, were not stiff supplies. They didn't have enough capacitance in the output filters to compensate for loading issues (i.e. instantaneous current draw). The newer supplies are much "stiffer" and they regulate better. A solid-state supply could be made to match the older vacuum tube supplies.

There are other obvious electronic explanations, in the book, that do not follow real physics and/or electronics models. What he is saying about the final result in the amplifiers sound quality and operational charactaristics is correct, however, the explanation of how it really works is not correct.

If you're into vintage amps, modifications, or just building one from the schematics Gerald has done an awesome job compiling information. He's got great, readable schematics, layout diagrams, etc. in the book. It's a bit biased toward Fender, however.

He also has some great historical information, as it relates to the Fender amps, as well.

Overall, I think the book is good. It's just hard to read because of the indescrepancies in the electronics section.

Weber does a good job of covering the basics of tube amp design, with a clear bias towards Fender amps. You can learn a lot about these amps, and feel (relatively) comfortable servicing or modifying your amp. It is comprehensive enough to use as the guide in building your own amp from the information and schematics provided.

HASH(0x8c52bf78) von 5 Sternen A good primer for those interested in vintage amps. 1. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Weber covers a lot of territory in this guide to vintage amps. Written for those without technical backgrounds, much of the book is in "question/answer" format. While coverage of Fender amps is excellent, those interested in Marshall, Vox and more esoteric vacuum tube amps might feel slighted. A must have for anyone interested in collecting/restoring or just purchasing vintage amps

HASH(0x8c52d1f8) von 5 Sternen Good, but not what it calls itself 27. April 2010
Von Charles King - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting book, but it is not, as it calls itself, "a desktop reference of hip vintage guitar amps," unless the definition of "hip" is made so subjective as to be meaningless.

The only amps regarding which this book could be considered a reference are a handful of old Fenders---one brand, and not even all of them. In fact, it only mentions Marshall amps occasionally, and there is practically nothing about Vox, or Ampeg, or Silvertone, much less any of the less-common vintage amps. With a title like this, I expected a book that one could leaf through and learn about vintage amps. This is not that book.

But that's not to say this book doesn't have its good points. The author was an amplifier repairman and builder for many years, and he shares a lot of insights and tricks that I have not seen elsewhere. Most of the information in the book is aimed at, and of greatest use to, somebody who builds, refurbishes or repairs amplifiers, and there are a lot of hobbyists in that category (like me), and not a lot of resources available to them, so this book definitely can be an asset. But again, from the title, it is far from clear that it's for that audience.

And, while Weber was a knowledgeable amp builder, he's not really a writer, and whoever edited this book for the publisher didn't really do much of a job---it's disjointed, and while it contains a lot of good information, it's not really organized. One chunk of the book is reprints of Trainwreck newsletters, presented without any context. And almost half the book is reprinted schematics, most for amps not even mentioned elsewhere in the book. In this book, they are padding, adding heft but not much useful information.

If you build or tinker with amps as a hobby, there's probably a fair amount of information in here that you will find interesting and possibly useful. But if you leave the soldering to somebody else, this book is probably not for you. If you want a reference that will give you some basic information about hip vintage guitar amps, Pittman's "Tube Amp Book" is probably better, although it covers a lot more stuff and doesn't go into great depth. Or, if you're looking for a book that explains how amps work, Hunter's "Guitar Amplifier Handbook" would be better. But if you already have those and you're looking for more, this book might be up your alley.

HASH(0x8c52d450) von 5 Sternen Should have listened to the reviews not the author 29. Dezember 2011
Von SoCo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Although there is a lot of great information in this book along with a plethora of schematics (Which I cannot read), I found the other reviews to be spot on. The book is a thrown together outline of the Fender revolution and then there is a copy of the Trainwreck manual thrown in the middle of the book (which looks photo copied) and it ends with a guide to buying what else, but Kendrick amps. Therefore I agree it with the other post that the book is disorganized and thrown together. Furthermore it does not get into the basic of what and amp is and the architecture of the stages.
