Particular attention has been paid to answering questions commonly asked by newcomers to the world of the vacuum tube, whether audio enthusiasts tackling their first build, or more experienced amplifier designers seeking to learn the ropes of working with valves. The practical side of this book is reinforced by numerous clear illustrations throughout. As well as the design and build of new valve amplifiers, complete with constructional projects, Morgan Jones introduces the modification, fault-finding and repair of new and classic equipment.

    Review quote
    For starters and perhaps surprisingly considering its title, this book offers a wealth of practical knowledge that goes well beyond hollow-state applications as many topics are just as relevant in the successful inplementation of solid-state designs...The sheer quantity of practical, tried and true information is most impressive and clearly indicates that many individuals and organizations contributed by sharing the hard-earned skills and expertise. The over 200 high quality illustrations also help to reinforce the points made in the well-written text...I was particularly impressed with the chapter on choosing new and used test equipment. The discussion regarding the advantages and disadvantages of analog and digital meters and scopes is exceptionally well done. The information is presented with a minimum of math yet is well supported by excellent examples and illustrations that clearly bring home the salient points. The reader is truly receiving a concentrated practical course in instrumentation...If you actually intend to create, modify, restore or repair tube audio equipment, I would highly recommend purchasing Building Valve Amplifiers even if you are seasoned by many years of practical experience. I am convinced that all readers will be amazed at the quantity of new useful knowledge it contains. - James H. Hayward to appear in Andrew Marshall's Audio Ideas Guide Magazine
