5.0 out of 5 stars Technically brilliant and readable to boot, 12 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Valve Amplifiers (Paperback)
Morgan Jones updates his comprehensive guide to valve amplifier design, producing for what could be a very dry subject a very readable book. Although aimed at the Hi-Fi end of the Valve DIY market, this book is also essential reading for those considering scratch bulding a valve based guitar or bass amp. Guitar amplifier folks will be a bit dissapointed that Mr. Jones strives to reduce distorsion, but in doing so he shows which components have an effect on the creation of distorsion.

There is a seam of dry, even caustic, wit which runs through this book. I particulary enjoyed the section on single ended ampifiers where the author says he feels the "single ended genre be given a fair trial and hanging" and concludes that the sound quality of the amplifier in question improved over four hours of listening thanks to "a bottle of Veuve Clicquot"!!
