tube amp transformers book?

Postby marcao_cfh » 23 Oct 2017, 03:23

Next year I'm planning on building a marshall 18w-like tube amp. I got everything but the chassis and transformers. Since I have plenty of time before I'll start to build the amp, I've thought about winding the transformers myself. Any good books or guides on power and output transformer designing and winding?

That's a nice paper! The maths are easy to follow, and coincidentally I have a spare tube that can be used in a single ended 3,5W amp. Different primary impedance, but I can follow the paper to calculate my own transformer. Now I need to find something on push pull output transformer.
