Following my last post, you guys have got me interested in power
supply design. Filter cap sizing, chokes etc. (see I was listening to
every word ;-)
I have two books. The First is by Morgan Jones (Valve Amplifiers), a
bit over my head and covers way too wide a field.
Then you're not there yet.
The second is by
Gerald Weber (Tube Amp Talk for the Guitarist and Tech), mainly mods..
Cheeseball hackery... not taking you where you want to go.
Could anyone recommend a book which is guitar amp based and could,
help me size components and understand the basic calculations and
principle behind guitar tube amp design.
Do you understand basic electronics? Positive/negative reactance?
Thevenin's theorem, etc? No substitute for homework.
The Big Red Book is our bible... Radiotron Designer's Handbook.
I started out with Sam's Second Class Radiotelephone Handbook,
then went to community college (got out of Basic AC/DC Electronics).
I couldn't run to the price of a 4th edition Radiotron Designer's
Handbook but, I can get the 3rd edition for less than a 10th of the
price. Do you know if the early edition is worth having for learning
Go here for the cheapskate version...http://www.pmillett.com/technical_books_online.htm- Hide quoted text -

Thanks. Think I'm sorted now. I have a pdf of RDH and a copy of the
1967 Amateur Radio Handbook on its way.
