Default For all new tube junkies

I just wanted to post a link to a site that i found last night, that was the most basic explanation of tubes and tube amp construction i have ever seen. I've been reading about tube amps for six months now and every time a "TUBE AMP PRIMER" type page was linked it ended up being over my head with charts and math....and i didn't really have the basic understanding down yet. I think this guy did a good job of clarifying the concepts i hadn't yet grasped.

So for all those still confused i submit :

I hope this helps.

I skimmed this and enjoyed it. I get something out of every article on tubes that I read.

I would add that he probably should discuss hum control circuitry on the heaters. Basic stuff, easy to implement, really helps. But, if his amps work without so much the better.

Thanks for the resource--it did help me.

That's a good site. I've been there years before but he's a lot further along now.
