Last week I bought the following books
** Valve Amplifiers, by Morgan Jones
** Tube Circuits for Audio Amplifiers, by Mullard
** Beginner's Guide To Tube Audio Design, by Bruce Rozenblit
All those books are a bit advanced for me because I don't have the basic orientation nor a reference for what they're talking about. Math is not the problem. I just need the right reading material or videos or something to get me oriented. I feel like I just need that one book and then after that I'll be able to follow along on the above books...I just need the one pre-requisite to the above.
My objective is not to earn an electrical engineering degree...I just want to be able to build my own tube amp while having a beginners understanding of what each part does so that I can modify or eventually design my own without relying on a kit.
your suggestions are much appreciated.
