In the 1950's, rock and roll was played on simple instruments with simple audio equipment. But today, rock music can be as technically complex as any Hollywood blockbuster. 'Rock Hardware' uncovers how the instruments and technology of rock have evolved, giving new insight into the mechanics of rock music's most famous moments on stage and in the studio. The book explores the range of musical and technical choices including acoustic guitars, electric guitars, Basses, amps, drums and persuasion, keyboards, electronic music, brass, woodwinds, live sound systems, and recording technology. An absorbing narrative and 200 striking colour photographs depict the design intricacies of classic and contemporary landmarks in rock's fascinating instrumental history. 'Rock Hardware' gives today's musician an understanding of how to choose from the vast array of old and new instruments, and how to combine the tools and technology to create their own new milestone in rock history.
