The Art of Tap Tuning - 2nd Edition

By Roger H. Siminoff

Master luthier Roger Siminoff reveals the secrets of tap tuning sound frequencies and perfecting the tone of your instrument. From picking the wood to adjusting the sound chamber, Siminoff explores every aspect of this ancient art.

In beginner-friendly language Siminoff shares sixty years of experience, methodology, and tips to consistently shape the sound of your instruments. He also discusses how strings, bridges, and soundboard design affect the overall sound of the instrument.

Not only for guitars, Siminoff discusses tone bar and air chamber tuning for 12 different instruments. This new edition is updated with over 95 color photos and diagrams, as well as reprints of articles by Gibson engineer and legend Lloyd Loar. You also get access to an exclusive 55 minute video course showing tap tuning in action.
