Reviews of Inside Tube Amps
REVIEW: Dan Torres, a veteran of the amp modification and repair biz, explains the nuts and bolts of tube amp design without the anguish of quadric equations. This 310 page soft cover's easy-to-read chapters cover schematics, preamp and power amp design, filter caps, biasing, transformers, tubes, rectifiers etc. - This excellent book gives you a thorough grounding in what makes a tube amp tick.
An absolute must read for anyone. (Guitar Player Magazine July 1995)|
REVIEW: Inside Tube Amps is clearly written in a musician friendly style.
It is a complete manual on tube driven guitar amplifiers and
covers design, modification, troubleshooting, and repairs.
Everything is here from building your own Class A amp from
scratch to sorting out power supplies, filter caps, and
power transformers. There are charts, graphs and nicely finished
illustrations throughout the book which help with explanation of
the text. (Vintage Guitar Magazine May 1995)
REVIEW: Dan Torres has taken his many years of experience as a technician and designer and has
condensed it all into one easy to read, musician friendly manual. I learned more cool stuff about amps in
10 minutes with this book then I've learned in my entire musical life. Everything from tube selection
to power transformers to even building an entire Class A amplifier is covered without the rocket science
math and theory that would leave most of us running for cover under our acoustic guitars. (20th Century Guitar Magazine January 1996)
