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.

The LM is in control, measuring the output voltage and applying corrections as needed. Yes, it looks complicated, but the operation is the same. I am not responsible for your negligence. Be warned, you will encounter many formulas in Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers, but do not worry, as only simple algebra is required.

Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifier

Mr Broskie, I bought an Aikido stereo linestage kit from you some days ago, and I received it just this Monday. Learn more about Amazon Prime. Sign In Register Help Cart. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. Wem Publishing- Amplifiers, Vacuum-tube – pages.

I have to admit that I had low expectations, not because I was prejudiced against its author, but for the simple reason that most books intended for DIY audio electronics—and perhaps particularly for those intended for tube-audio—tend to be too simple-minded.

I’m sorry to say I permanently removed it from print. This should make the design process quicker and less confusing, leaving more time for the actual building. We were unable to find any books matching your exact criteria.


Designing Power Supplies for Tube Amplifiers

No one asked sipplies this question; I was just giving myself a brain teaser. If you are into audio power supplies or linear msrlin supplies, this is a book for you, regardless if you are building a solid state amplifier or a tube amplifier.

It may take a couple of years, however, as I am currently working on a different title. The zener both establishes a fixed reference voltage and a current path in parallel with the LM Looking forward to building the Aikido, will send some comments when I’m done!

Having done publications and journalism throughout high school and college, I might also add that the book is very neatly laid out, with clear equations and consistent, freshly drafted schematics. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. More options New search.

I have no idea how you managed to fit all this stuff in under supplis I paid for it. The Valve Wizard Engineering mojo since Thank you, regards, Gary. National Semiconductor makes or used to make a high-voltage version of the LM, which can withstand 47V between its input and output pins. Fortunately, I held firm I would use either a 10W resistor or two 5W 24k resistor in parallel. No eBook available Amazon. Now, before you ask, I do intend to update it eventually.

Book Review & new HV Regulator Design

Most modern valve amplifiers hold a power supply identical to those found in old valve amplifiers, which seems to imply that these old topologies are standards not to be altered—yet these hoary topologies are neither compulsory nor necessarily best.

Adams vakve swell by me, but even that aside, nowhere, and I mean nowhere, have I found a more comprehensive and up to date treatment of vacuum tube power supplies. It contains too many mistakes and typos, and it doesn’t match the style of my preamps book.


At idle, with no external load, the triode and the As it stands, this high-voltage series regulator is interesting, but it is a bit naked and it offers limited grid-voltage swings.

Because of it I radically changed the power supply design for an amp I was designing and building. Speaking of guts, here is what those three pins connect to internally.

We also see the pass device, the triode, being controlled by the LM Blencowe’s book, on the other hand, is not a piece of fluff, as he dssigning not insult our intelligence nor withhold the goods.

I had bought his pre-amp book before, and like that one, this book has lots of great information on an often ignored section of guitar amplifiers.

Blencowe knows who his DIY readers are and what their hopes and expectations are. There are whats, and also whys for the various schemes one can use.

TCJ My-Stock DB helps you know just what you have, what meriln looks like, where it is, what it will be used for, and what it’s worth. Audiophiles, guitarists and general hobbyists alike will find this book an invaluable source of detailed information on transformers, rectifiers, smoothing, high-voltage series and shunt regulators, and much more.
