B-957The Fender® Bassman 5F6-A, 3rd Edition by Richard Kuehnel

This book examines this famous amplifier by studying its circuit design in great detail. It starts by breaking the amplifier into its major components: the 12AY7 preamp, the 12AX7 voltage amp, the 12AX7 cathode follower, the tone stack, the long-tailed-pair phase splitter, the push-pull power amplifier, and the power supply. Each component is analyzed to determine how it works and to derive the design formulas needed to predict its performance. The results are then compared to bench tests of the actual circuit. Finally all of the components are put together to analyze total system behavior and to discover how and where the amp transitions into distortion.
