The ultimate guitar rig book?
Hal Leonard Books have just unveiled their latest book, Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition, by Scott Kahn (ISBN : 9781480355156, Price $29.99). This full-colour, updated edition has been described as “the definitive book about building and playing advanced guitar rigs for players who want to move beyond a simple pedal board and combo amp”. Modern Guitar Rigs, 2nd Edition, explores time-tested tools and techniques that any serious guitar player can draw upon to build a professional rig of their own.
Says Kahn: “A guitar rig by my definition is the complete collection of tools used in delivering your sound. The rig includes your amp(s), speaker cabinets, effects pedals, and rack gear such as effects, tuners, loopers, wireless system, power conditioners, foot controllers and pedal boards, and all the other little stuff that ties it all together. A nice combo amp might be one component in your rig, but if that’s all you’ve got, you have an amp, not a rig”.
Whether you’re playing clubs at the indie band level, getting set for a major tour, heading into the studio to record a new album, or just searching for that ‘ultimate tone’, this revised and updated edition should bring you the most current and effective sound-shaping tools and techniques, including amp set-ups, rack gear, effects loops, rig infrastructure, alongside some of the awesome rigs used by guitar stars such as John Petrucci of Dream Theater, Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Steven Wilson and John Wesley of Porcupine Tree.
