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. Single-ended and push-pull transformer output stage theory is also presented.

Theory becomes practical with two advanced, commercially produced high-end OTL audio amplifiers the reader can build. All design equations and procedures are shown. Schematics, parts lists and photos are provided to assist the reader with construction.

As a bonus, three tube tester projects are included. Readers can now construct their own modern tube testing equipment. Guitar amp users will find the tester projects especially useful.

Join us on a journey and experience the joys of tube audio by building state of the art equipment at very low cost. Understand how tubes work and make them the center of your musical enjoyment for many decades to come.

This is an excellent book, and I'll say that right off prior to any qualifying statements. It is a book that can be used by the beginner as well as someone with some electrical/electronic experience. And I believe the author agrees. He explains that some readers may not be able to grasp certain concepts that can only be proven with math, but nonetheless, he feels that everyone should be able to get something out of this book. Don't take this last comment the wrong way; the book is not particularly "heavy" with equations and advanced math, but the author does try his best to put enough into this book to be a bit of a challenge to beginners, yet not boring to the more advanced reader. He begins with some simple physics in fact, which I had never thought about in all my years of experimenting in electronics, and working with electrical circuits in my professional life. But I bought this book to understand the concepts and uses of vacuum tube circuits, something I have never understood. Although I am far from finished with this book, I don't believe I will be disappointed, or overwhelmed. I would definitely recommend it to anyone desiring to know more about tubes and tube driven amplifier circuits. The author blends his deep knowledge of the subject with a good sense of humor and an ability to explain things clearly. The book must be read the way it is written, at least for those who know little to nothing on the main subject, like myself; you can't skip ahead. But this is not a problem; even the things I find are review material for me are presented in a clear and concise manner which makes a review more enjoyable. And for a non-math oriented individual, yes, there is algebra, and yes there is some trig, but this is very straightforward, uncomplicated math. Nothing To trip up anyone with average abilities. I have several books on tube circuits, all of which are pretty good to very good. I will say however, that I wish I had found this one first. I don't believe it would disappoint anyone interested in the subject matter.
