B-726B-726Item ID: 001400Principles of Power
Principles of Power A Practical Guide to Tube Power Amplifier Design By Kevin O'Connor Offers a simplified method for designing tube power amps for audio. Tube operation is explained, as are circuit principles. Class-A or B, cathode, fixed bias, and push-pull and single-ended designs are covered, as are many front-end circuits. Includes designs using off-the-shelf transformers and current production tubes. Power outputs of 15 to 400W are depicted using pentodes and true triodes. Also, covers power supplies, selected tube data, and information on Hammond and Plitron transformers.
B-973B-973Item ID: 008532Tubes and Circuits by Bruce Rozenblit
Tubes and Circuits, is the most comprehensive and up to date text on vacuum tube audio currently available. Join Transcendent Sound's Bruce Rozenblit as he takes the reader on a journey from the basics up through advanced designs. Vacuum tube operation is completely explained from the chemistry of tubes through the electric fields that control them, how they work and how they fail. Essentials of DC and AC circuits are covered as well as some of the most useful circuits in tube audio.
B-695B-695Item ID: 001395The Ultimate Tone, Volume 1
This is the book that jump-started the boutique tube guitar amp business. Learn the truth about tube preamp design and modification; see how tube power amps work and can be made more reliable; see how reverbs and effects loops work and better ways to configure them; learn why some amp brands are easier to service and to mod than others; see how simple switching circuits are but how capable they can be. Tube data for the common types used in guitar and bass amps is provided, along with a discussion of stage set-up and player ergonomics. Spiral bound, 395 figures. 368 pages, 2.5 lbs, 8.5" x 11"
B-891B-891Item ID: 001421The Ultimate Tone, Volume 3
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn't change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the "iconic" amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product.
B-946B-946Item ID: 001442The Ultimate Tone, Volume 6
The evolution of guitar amp circuits becomes a revolution! TUT6 takes you through advanced DC Power Scaling methods; reveals the secrets of Dumble amps; explores the truth about high-gain preamps; demonstrates how to build Z-B-X push-pull power amps with a single power tube; simplifies the design of 400W+ tube amps - methods that can be applied to any power level; presents class-G tube amps where 100W of output has the same waste heat as a 25W amp; explores modern mains control and sustain circuitry. 312 Pages, 404 figures, spiral bound, 9" x 11"
B-772B-772Item ID: 001410The Ultimate Tone, Volume 2
The achievement of great, live sound is the premise used to explore modern high-gain guitar pre-amps, proper treatment of acoustic instruments, tube vocal PAs; dynamic bass gear, all types of tube, semi, hybrid and alternative power amplifier design, power supply mods that are "toneful", simple switching methods, speaker cabinet design, getting the most from effects loops and chains, and, modular stage monitoring systems that work! Spiral bound. 200 figures. 250 pages, 1.9 lbs.
B-913B-913Item ID: 001425The Ultimate Tone, Volume 5
Every part of your system contributes to your Ultimate Tone, so every part is important. TUT5 delineates, in clear language, the function of each electronic component in a circuit, and how alterations to the value of each part affect the final sound. Gain stage voicing, interstage attenuator optimization, sustain restoration for clean and distorted tones, power amp and preamp "tone generators", simple boost pedals, amp selectors and power conditioners are all covered, with designs using off-the-shelf parts.
B-932B-932Item ID: 001434The Ultimate Tone, Volume 4
Outlines, in schematic form, many approaches that achieve the goal of power scaling, super scaling and power management. A complete history and discourse on the technology outlines how to implement multiple power scale controls, alternative circuit forms and system impacts. Further tutorials outline the methods for super scaling, with both fixed and variable boost ratios, using both solid-state and tube methods.
