Building Valve Amplifiers is a unique hands-on guide for anyone working with tube audio equipment--as an electronics hobbyist, audiophile or audio engineer. This 2nd Edition builds on the success of the first with technology and technique revisions throughout and, significantly, a major new self-build project, worked through step-by-step, which puts into practice the principles and techniques introduced throughout the book. Particular attention has been paid to answering questions commonly asked by newcomers to the world of the valve, whether audio enthusiasts tackling their first build or more experienced amplifier designers seeking to learn about the design principles and trade-offs of "glass audio." Safety considerations are always to the fore, and the practical side of this book is reinforced by numerous clear illustrations throughout. The only hands-on approach to building valve and tube amps--classic and modern--with a minimum of theory Design, construction, fault-finding, and testing are all illustrated by step-by-step examples, enabling readers to clearly understand the content and succeed in their own projects Includes a complete self-build amplifier project, putting into practice the key techniques introduced throughout the book

Designing Tube Preamps for Guitar and Bass is the most comprehensive guide to the design of tube-based preamplifiers for musical instrument use, in a single volume. From the input to the phase inverter this book discusses in detail the inner workings and practical design of every part of a conventional guitar preamp, including the use of triodes, pentodes, tone controls, effects loops and much more. This second edition is fully revised and includes four new chapters covering noise, signal switching, topology, and grounding. Aimed at intermediate-level hobbyists and circuit designers, it explores how to manipulate distortion and maximise performance for the perfect tone. With easy-to-read explanations, minimal math and over 250 diagrams and figures, it is an essential handbook for any tube amp enthusiast!

Vollständig mit Röhren bestückte Verstärker sind schaltungstechnisch sehr aufwendig. Ein interessanter Kompromiss ist die Verknüpfung einer Röhrenvorstufe mit einer integrierten Endstufe. Dieser Ansatz, der auch bei etlichen kommerziellen Geräten anzutreffen ist, bildet den Schwerpunkt dieses Buches. Die beschriebenen Verstärkerschaltungen wurden dabei für besonders niedrige Spannungen ausgelegt.Das Buch wendet sich an Leser, die bereits über schaltungstechnische Grundkenntnisse verfügen, sich aber nicht zwangläufig mit Röhren auskennen müssen. In einem umfangreichen Einführungskapitel wird die Funktionsweise von Verstärkerröhren und Röhrenverstärkern beschrieben. Neben mehreren erprobten Verstärkerschaltungen finden sich im Buch auch Hinweise für eigene Experimente. In Ergänzung zu verschiedenen funktionsfähigen Grundschaltungen werden ebenso zahlreiche Erweiterungsmöglichkeiten diskutiert.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

In the second edition of Electronics for Guitarists author Denton Dailey teaches the basic theory of operation and design principles of analog guitar signal processing circuits and amplifiers. The design and operation of common effects circuits such as tone controls, preamps, phasers, flangers, envelope followers, distortion and overdrives are covered, as are both solid-state amplifiers and power supplies. Written primarily for the guitarist, this book balances coverage of theoretical analysis and design while providing many examples of practical experimental circuits. The main thrust of the material is analog circuitry, focusing on fundamental principles of transistors, integrated circuit and vacuum tube-based amplifier operation and theory, and operation of typical guitar signal processing effects circuits. Updated to the new edition include: • New coverage of tone control circuits, MOSFETS and their applications as small-signal amplifiers, rail splitters and charge pumps, amplifiers using germanium transistors, and tube power amp design • Expanded coverage of numerous subjects such as vacuum tube power supplies, the digital oscilloscope, Darlington and Sziklai transistors, and signal spectra and transfer function symmetry • Additional examples of various circuits such as overdrive, distortion, chorus, delay, tremolo and auto-wah circuits as well as amplifier design Electronics for Guitarists is ideal for the musician or engineer interested in analog signal processing. The material is also useful to general electronics hobbyists, technologists and engineers with an interest in guitar and music-related electronics applications.
