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.

To purchaseplease visit our Yahoo Store. Blencowe’s book, on powee other hand, is not a piece of fluff, as he does not insult our intelligence nor withhold the goods. Wem Publishing 13 Oct. Beginners should read the first 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 aamplifiers fans know nothing about the problem of LC resonance.

Book Review & new HV Regulator Design

Account Options Sign in. But if we place a power resistor s in parallel with the resistor string, the LM and zener can still get the current they require.

Unlike the pre amp book is not packed with much brand new information i. 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. Designing Power Supplies for Valve Amplifiers is a unique guide to the operation and practical design of linear power supplies, especially for valve equipment. In addition, all the many schematics are cleanly laid out and easy to understand.


Would you like to see more reviews about this item? The single triode had been replaced by two high-voltage transistors and some extra support circuitry. Pages with related products.

However as a one-stop-shop book to read it is top notch so 5 emrlin. It is readable, informative and easily understood. If you are planning to build or mod an amp this book is a must! The Elliott Sound Practices web site offers wonderful heatsinking explication, guidelines, and design practices. I would have also expected either an appendix with the.

Get to Know Us. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.

Do not get me wrong here, as I greatly prefer such a style over amplifierss “Hey Dude, pass me the roach, I mean alligator clip” style of many guitar amplifier books.

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 amplifierx. This is the baby-step circuit before we move on the actual circuit; nonetheless, it might prove adequate for many preamp and line-stage amplifier applications. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

This book is very useful, full of down to earth analysis of power supply design. Please try again designning. If I can find all the same material on the web for free, do I really need to buy this book?

I highly recommend these books to anyone interested in designning subject. He knows that finding such information is difficult, as the average power-supply book is intended for a different audience.

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. Useful for solid state amps too. Yes, it looks complicated, but the operation is the same.

Adjust your search criteria ISBN 13 In the schematic, the LM conducts 3mA, while the zener conducts 17mA. I remember seeing this schematic in an old National Semiconductor data sheet over 30 years ago. But that doesn’t mean we can’t help you find the book you’re looking for 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.

As it stands, this high-voltage series regulator is interesting, but it is a bit naked and it offers limited grid-voltage swings. Although this book is not intended for the beginner, learning is encouraged through practical design, and concepts are introduced at a basic level before the reader is accelerated to the stage of high-performance design, with over circuit diagrams and figures.

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