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.

Thank you, regards, Gary. Advanced practitioners will find much to like in these and in the anplifiers five chapters. We also see the pass device, the triode, being controlled by the LM He talks about the myth of “cathode stripping”, and provides evidence that this is a transmitting tube phenomena, and that this happens at an electric field strength level that almost never occurs in receiving tubes.

Yes, it looks complicated, but the operation is the same. The meerlin regulator fog and maintains the fixed output voltage, while the high-voltage triode shields the solid-state device from lethal voltages. Numerous practical circuits are included, for high-voltage stabilisers, heater regulators, optimised bias circuits, high-voltage powee using ‘junk box’ parts, and even audio power control for guitar amplifiers.

The LM strives to maintain a constant 1. Even so, I have done my best to write these tutorials cook-book style merlun that even a layman can follow the instructions and design a working circuit without actually knowing how it works- but it certainly helps to understand first.

Because of it I radically changed the power supply design for an amp I was designing and building. Read more Read less. One man can only do so much! Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers is a unique guide to the operation and practical design of linear power supplies, especially for valve equipment.


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.

Find Rare Books Book Value. To purchaseplease visit our Yahoo Store. It is almost as suoplies the publisher and writer assume that making the big jump from the remote control to the soldering ampliifiers is in itself a feat of such towering skill, endurance, strength, and imagination that would be asking too much to expect the poor audiophile to learn and understand complex concepts as well.

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. Just flipping through this book now, there’s an asterisk note at the bottom of page Blencowe’s book, on the other hand, is not a piece of fluff, as he does not insult our intelligence nor merrlin the goods. The following deluxe version addresses both of these concerns.

My library Help Advanced Book Search. This is a really great book on designing linear power supplies in general not only tube power supplies, of course theres an emphasis on power supplies for tube amplifiers blehcowe the material covered by the author is not restricted to tube amps.

As it stands, this high-voltage series regulator is interesting, but it is a bit naked and it offers limited grid-voltage swings.

So I waited patiently for this book to arrive and wasn’t in any way disappointed. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals.

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Okay, if this last capacitor is so important, why are you using a cheesy electrolytic capacitor and why is it so large in value? Learn more about Amazon Prime. Firstly, I’m extremely impressed at the quality of what I’ve been sent.

Interested in making your own ribbon microphones? I’ve been getting a lot of mail about my power supplies book.

Looking forward to building the Aikido, will send some comments when I’m done! However, it is worth noting that these designs are not compulsory; there are many ways to arrange the same transformer and rectifier, depending on the output voltage we need.

An essential handbook for any valve amplifier enthusiast! In addition, all the many schematics are cleanly laid out and easy to understand. I have also tried to remove unnecessary maths and leave only the essential formulae and rules of thumb. Having said that, in my opinion you should already be fairly knowledgeable about amplifier building and operation, AND really be into this topic to buy this book.

The LM is in control, measuring the output voltage and applying corrections as needed. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Blencowe really covers the ground, starting with transformers and working his way through the various power supplies required for tube amps, and the various and appropriate forms of filtering and regulating the same. Design and Construction of Tube Guitar Amplifiers. 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.
