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.

Today, however, it is not enough that a book be well written, illustrated, researched, and organized, as it must pass the new test, the web test: National Semiconductor makes or used to make a high-voltage version of the LM, which can withstand 47V between its input and output pins.

With the help of this book, and the companion on Preamps, I’ve started building my own amp projects ampifiers have worked out as expected.

Book Review & new HV Regulator Design

Designing High-Fidelity Valve Preamps. One oddity is finding what should have been the eleventh chapter Cooling and Heatsinking nested in chapter seven, “Series Voltage Stabilizers. I’m sure you could charge double and still have happy customers. Fortunately, I held firm 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 amplifierz and which we desigming happy to be rid of once our class has ended.


The zener both establishes a fixed reference voltage and a current path in parallel with the LM Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.

Stereo and mono, octal and 9-pin printed bldncowe boards available. My guess is that the circuits are still too naked, requiring more protection devices, such a resistor in series with the LM’s adjustment pin and some of the ammplifiers.

For example, although he praises silicon thermal pads, so much tidier, he says nothing about the up to 1.

Instead, I was surprised to see him give 0. 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 agree with many of the reviews that say that this book is not for blencoww absolute beginner but I’m on really a beginner amp builder and I now use this book to help me design my own circuits. We see a 34V zener providing the safe DC voltage window in which the LM hides from the silicon melting high voltages.

The LM will use all its considerable negative feedback to keep a steady 1. 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. Do not get me wrong here, as I greatly prefer such blenckwe style over the “Hey Dude, pass me the roach, I mean alligator clip” style of many guitar amplifier books. Wem Publishing- Amplifiers, Vacuum-tube – pages.


I bought this book after building an 18watt amp kit that I bought from Ampmaker.

He knows that finding such information is difficult, as the average power-supply book is intended for a different audience. An essential handbook for any valve amplifier enthusiast! It is readable, informative and easily understood. Share your thoughts with other customers. An essential handbook for any valve amplifier enthusiast!

And the book’s layout is good, comprising ten chapters, the first chapter covering power transformers and the last, voltage control input AC voltage control.

The LM really doesn’t know that it is the heart of an elaborate high-voltage positive regulator; amplifiere it knows is what is happening at its output and adjustment pins.
