    Just thought I would share this with you. I just got this very cool book entitled "The Peavey Revolution: Hartley Peavey: The Gear, The Company and the All-American Success Story" and I must say this is a very interesting book. 184 glossy color pages in 8.5" x 11" format. Lots of info about their many products over the years, and a lot of insight into the company's philosophy and humble beginnings. I highly recommend it! :cool:

    On my to get list: "Ampeg: The Story Behind the Sound." This one is 288 pages and if it is half as nice as the Peavey book, should be hard to put down.

    I got the Peavey book off Amazon (from the used and new link) and I see they have "used and new" Ampeg books available too.

    Anyone know of other amp history/reference books like these?

    What I liked about the part of the book I read was the insight into technical and market advancements. It had a lot more depth than the many glossy photos would seem to indicate.

    Another book that looks good: Jim Marshall - The Father of Loud: The Story of the Man Behind the World's Most Famous Guitar Amplifiers
