A New "How To" Book With Plans For 19 Projects

Electronic Projects For Musicians
By: Craig Anderton with
Illustrations by: Vesta Copestakes
Guitar Player Productions - $6.95

In Craig's biography it says that he's been doing this sort of thing since he was 15 - which works out to about a dozen years. In that amount of time you would expect that he would get pretty good at it. He has.

Probably the best part of the book is that he assumes you know nothing and proceeds to teach you everything about construction techniques, parts and how to substitute them, that you need to know to build the book's 19 projects from scratch. If we could get everyone to read these first sections before assembling a kit, we could cut our repair department in half.

If it happens that you already know everything, you can skip the first part of the book and get right to the projects; but if you do, you will miss most of Vesta's terrific illustrations.

From compressors through ring modulators and electronic switches, these designs form an excellent introduction to the basics of electronic music modifiers. And, a bound in demo record features Craig showing you how all the goodies will sound when you're done.

"Electronic Projects for Musicians" is a permanent addition to my library and chances are good that yours could benefit from it too.
