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.

In the schematic, the LM conducts 3mA, while the zener conducts 17mA. So far, I haven’t found a single schematic typo, which is a laudatory achievement indeed. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it supplues, give it a second life.

I wish everyone did business like you. My first thoughts were that it would certainly be possible to create a shunt regulator, such as the following. I highly recommend these books to anyone interested in the subject.

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. An essential handbook for any valve amplifier enthusiast!

In case you can’t find the book you’re looking for on Biblio. Can you say that about all that you find in a Google search?

This book is very useful, full of down to earth analysis of power supply design. Tips for successful searching Try checking the spelling of words in suppliea search Try to eliminate “noise” words, such as a, and, the, etc Try searching by just one parameter at a time e. All in all highly recommended. Overall if you want to design supplkes valve amp guitar or hi-fi and have not read lots on the subject already this is a great buy.

The design functioning remained the same: It is much more detailed than your average how to book, delving into the underlying theory. B when I see a diagram of how to wire up a 78L12 linear regulator with an extra diode to get a For example, he begins a section titled “Relative output voltages of rectifier circuits” thus: The following schematic is stripped down, so as to leave its operation on display without the clutter of the safety and performance-enhancing components.

The quality is fabulous, and your documentation is superb. Beginners should read the desgining five chapters over and over again, as they cover essential material, such as transformer selection, rectification, and filtering; particularly, the chapter on LC smoothing filters, as most tube fans know nothing about the problem of LC resonance. Still, for this American, Mr. Starting with the compulsory throat clearing, let’s look at two old designs. Also other stuff like how to get rid of diode noise in rectifiers the best.


Unlike the pre amp book is not packed with much brand new information i. Find Rare Books Book Value. No, not a high-voltage negative regulator, which would be merely a mirror image of the above circuit, with PNP transistors replacing NPN types, my goal suppliees a positive high-voltage regulator. Amplifirs a problem loading this menu at the moment. It makes an excellently refresher course.

This book is an excellent merlim for anyone who wants to build their own guitar amp projects, or just for getting a better understanding of how things work. My only disapointments were A that switch mode power supplies seem merlni be regarded as a no-go area.

What makes Biblio different? Firstly, I’m extremely impressed at the quality of what I’ve been sent. He 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.

Msrlin stacks of old books on valve circuits and of course Morgan Jones’ essential volumes I was in two minds about bothering with this book and it hovered on and off my wish list for quite a while.
