You can't talk about amps without Doug Hofmann's forum and his library pages: http://www.el34world.com/Forum/index.php

not to mention parts

A nice list of schematics, especially Marshalls :
http://www.drtube.com/guitamp.htm
http://www.drtube.com/marshall.htm
Maybe nothing more than Schematics Heaven, but some files are in .gif instead of .pdf if you prefer. And there are sometimes pictures or misc. info.

EDIT : Oops, link already posted here, but i did not find it in the first post ...

Direct from the FENDER webside are official schematics of amps for download

http://www.fender.com/support/amplifier_schematics.php
It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

No silicon heaven ? preposterous ! Where would all the calculators go ?

I't so funny that I was reading down this two page list and I have every single one of those in my favs folder already.
Pete Millet's site is an immense wealth of literature! I've downloaded so many books from his site. I've emailed him about some old MacIntosh Amps I have. Nice guy.

Here's a several other resources that I've used in the past that I didn't see on the list yet:

http://boozhoundlabs.com/ some great diy tube projects/articles

http://www.dogstar.dantimax.dk/tubestuf/index.htm Fred's site and home of the Real McTube I & II

http://www.harpamps.com/ another great resource of information

http://www.lwharpamps.com/ Some great diy projects and forum for small Harp amps.

And Don't Forget: http://www.brownnote.net/ Hit up the forum for a wealth of information! Some really knowledgeable guys there.

Oh and Finally: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/ While mostly dealing with Hifi there is a wealth of knowledge there regarding tubes/SS/Speakers, etc...


Enjoy,

Steve

I tried copying/pasting that link in google but it took me to some website about christmas stuff, looks like Steve moved the site to another place, just thought I'd post this link here:

Shit! It links only one calculator... In this case - click on the blue menu called Select Another Calculator and enjoy :)

I've been having a lot of trouble getting into 18watt.com. Is it going defunct?
