B-932 The Ultimate Tone, Volume 4, Advanced Methods for Amp Design
by Kevin O'Connor
Outlines, in schematic form, many approaches that achieve the goal of power scaling, super scaling and power management. A complete history and discourse on the technology outlines how to implement multiple power scale controls, alternative circuit forms and system impacts. Further tutorials outline the methods for super scaling, with both fixed and variable boost ratios, using both solid-state and tube methods.
B-946 The Ultimate Tone, Volume 6, Timeless Tone Built for the Future
by Kevin O'Connor
The evolution of guitar amp circuits becomes a revolution! TUT6 takes you through advanced DC Power Scaling methods; reveals the secrets of Dumble amps; explores the truth about high-gain preamps; demonstrates how to build Z-B-X push-pull power amps with a single power tube; simplifies the design of 400W+ tube amps - methods that can be applied to any power level; presents class-G tube amps where 100W of output has the same waste heat as a 25W amp; explores modern mains control and sustain circuitry.

B-977 Guitar Amplifier Electronics Basic Theory
by Richard Kuehnel
This book presents vacuum tube amplifier theory using modern, web-based design tools and computer visualizations to eliminate the usual litany of mathematical formulas. The book begins with the fundamentals of electronics and vacuum tubes. It then proceeds through each stage of a modern guitar amplifier, including preamp voltage amplification stages, cathode followers, tone stacks, power amps, phase inverters, and power supplies. The final chapter is devoted to the craft of controlling overdrive dynamics and harmonic distortion.
