Do someone know where I cans find the “Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifier” by Merlin Blencowe book in USA?? Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers is a unique guide to the operation and practical design of linear power supplies, especially for valve equipment. I’ve been getting a lot of mail about my power supplies book. I’m sorry to say I permanently removed it from print.

No more pesky turret board! If you are starting out, I would skip it until you have more knowledge, otherwise you may get overwelmed. If you’re keen to see what’s in store before you buy, PDF previews are available on the author’s website, here: I’m ajplifiers you could charge double and still have happy customers.

: Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers (): Merlin Blencowe: Books

I am predominantly interested in audio amps, not instrument amps, and this book is of equal value to both camps. The Safe Approach When building a new high-voltage regulator design, I always first try it with low voltages, for if it fails to work putting out 20V, it will never work trying to put out a V output voltage. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. I like also the fact that Blencowe explodes certain tube myths that I have somehow come to accept, and which have obtained a life of their own on the internet.

I have no idea how you managed to fit all this stuff in under what I paid for it.

In the case of, Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers, the answer is yes, you need the book, as you cannot find it all on the web; no doubt, many portions can be found, but not everything—and certainly not in ampllfiers a well packaged format. Instead, I was surprised to see him give 0.


Next, blncowe move on to the series high-voltage regulator based on the LM Suggestions, comments, criticisms welcome. Write a customer review. But that doesn’t mean we can’t help you find the book you’re looking for With an external load attached, the triode might undergo a current flow of mA, while the Well, all of this is old hat.

No eBook available Amazon. It is NOT light reading to say the least. High-quality, double-sided, extra thick, 2-oz traces, plated-through holes, dual sets of resistor pads and pads for two coupling capacitors.

The LM will use all its considerable negative feedback to keep a steady 1. Thank you, regards, Gary.

Design and Construction of Tube Guitar Amplifiers. Because of it I radically changed the power supply design for an amp I was designing and building.

In spite of the word “tube” in the book’s title, I instantly assumed that Mr. Do not email me asking if I have spare copies or PDFs; your email will be ignored. By the way, the LM only sees a 9. Website Introduction Welcome to the wonderful world of valve amps! Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. Stereo and mono, octal and 9-pin printed circuit boards available.

ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. Universal amplifier PCBs for sale; make a whole guitar amp ‘lego style’.

Note that a 1. What makes Biblio different? I’m an Electrical Engineer that doesn’t do much analog work, bj I welcomed the fact that all of the math was algebra, and all the explanations were strightforward to anyone that suppies circuit analysis.


It is a true shame that this book is no longer in print, I checked the author’s webpage and this is what I found: If you’re here then you’re probably thinking about tinkering about inside one.

Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers

desitning This high-voltage shunt regulator looks far more complex than it really is. Many pure tube-based and solid-state-based and hybrid solutions are illustrated; there is even a quite Janus-like shunt regulator that utilizes both feedforward and feedback to produce clean, steady DC voltage, page ; And the last chapter is a must read, as it covers the problem of too little or too much wall voltage and some possible solutions. Amplifkers also knows that the audio circuitry makes different demands on a power supply and that tube audio makes extra demands, because of higher voltages involved.

What other items do customers buy after viewing this item? Blencowr with the compulsory throat clearing, let’s look at two old designs.

Yet, Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers is not a tedious academic book, stuffed with footnotes and turgid prose, a textbook that one is forced to buy and which we read only under duress and which we are happy to be rid of once our class has ended. At idle, with no external load, the triode and the Even so, I have done my best to write these tutorials cook-book style so that even a layman can follow the designiing and design a working circuit without actually knowing how it works- but it certainly helps to understand first.
