Designing High-Fidelity Tube Preamps is a comprehensive guide to the design of small-signal, tube-based amplifiers. This book examines in unprecidented detail the inner workings and practical design of small signal stages, volume and tone controls, RIAA equalisation, power supplies and more. Aimed at intermediate to advanced-level hobbyists and professionals it teaches the principles of low-noise, low-distortion tube design, through easy-to-read explanations and minimal math. With over 400 diagrams and figures, and hundreds of real measurements of real circuits, it asserts itself as an essential handbook for any tube amp enthusiast.
Clean preamps are the easiest to design and build. When a guitarist says 'clean'
he usually means no clipping (or barely perceptible clipping) rather than true
high-fidelity amplification. The natural nonlinearity of the valves will result in mild

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!

"This second edition of Small Signal Audio Design is the essential and unique guide to the design of high-quality analogue circuitry for preamplifiers, mixing consoles, and many other signal-processing devices. You will learn to use inexpensive and readily available parts to obtain state-of-the-art performance in all the vital parameters of noise, distortion, crosstalk, etc. This practical handbook provides a repertoire of circuit blocks from which almost any type of audio system can be built. Essential points of theory that determine practical performance are lucidly and thoroughly explained, with the mathematics at a minimum. Virtually every page reveals nuggets of specialized knowledge not found elsewhere. Douglas' background in design for manufacture ensures he keeps a wary eye on the cost of things. Learn how to: - Make amplifiers with apparently impossibly low noise - Design discrete circuitry that can handle enormous signals with vanishingly low distortion - Use ordinary bipolar transistors to make amplifiers with an input impedance of more than 50 Megohms - Transform the performance of low-cost-opamps, and how to make filters with very low noise and distortion - Make incredibly accurate volume controls - Make a huge variety of audio equalisers - Make magnetic cartridge preamplifiers that have noise so low it is limited by basic physics - Sum, switch, clip, compress, and route audio signals effectively - Build reliable power-supplies, with many practical ways to keep both the noise and the cost down"--

Although it is true that accurately calculating electronic circuits can involve complicated formulas, for the electronic hobbyist it is not necessary to perform at the level of an electrical engineer. With some basic knowledge it is possible for the hobbyist to design and build vacuum tube audio amplifiers that perform well. This book covers basic electronics related to vacuum tube amplifiers, an elementary guide for understanding and working with vacuum tube amplifier circuits. Sections cover electronic and audio information that are concise with many examples and illustrations. Vacuum tube amplifying circuits are explained in simple terms without complicated math. Math is primarily basic math and a few simple formulas all solvable with a standard calculator and presented with examples. A table of component values for the popular 12AX7 in various operating parameters simplifies amplifier stage design. The first section of the book contains more detailed technical basic electronic information. Sections two through four are more casual in presentation and include pertinent information from section one. Included in this book are eight project circuits with parts list and component layouts for a Buffer Line Amplifier with 25db gain, 6V6SE Monoblock Amplifier, Triode Balanced/Unbalanced Input, Tone Control Stage, Cathode Follower Output, and Turntable Pre-Amplifier. Also included are a 6V6SE Stereo Amplifier and Guitar Amplifier project circuits with component layouts.
