Got a special place in my heart for this book. I had a first edition borrowed from a friend as I was just getting going with this hobby/obsession.

Yeah, it's a great read, the first time I discovered it was in the Charles Darwin University Library, here in Darwin NT Australia, I was casually looking for books on Electronics and came across it, so I borrowed it from the Library, this was back in 1994 and 1995 when I was doing a course in Basic Electronics at the Uni, brings back fond memories of building Craig Anderton's Tube Sound Fuzz, might even build it again one day.... :D

Hi everyone. I've also put this up (a zipped .pdf) at Rapidshare. It's on a premium account, so will stay available.

I don't supposed anybody has MP3s of the included floppy record, do they? I lost my sample-tracks record from my hard-copy years ago.

Heh, heh... I gave up on finding mine several moves ago. It used to have a permanent home gathering dust under my turntable.

Q: Is there any advantage to using solder with a 2% silver content?
A: Yes. Silver solder keeps werewolves away from your amp.
