The Ruffian Show Interview December 27, 2016 19:03

A few weeks ago I had the honor of being interviewed on The Ruffian Show. Dan Deleon was a very gracious host, our conversation running the gamut from education to analog circuit design. My very first interview, and it probably shows, although I enjoyed the experience and look forward to more opportunities to talk gear. Thanks again, Dan!

Why a Tube Amp's Standby Switch is Bad News September 20, 2016 13:12

The Valve Wizard (Mr. Merlin Blencowe) makes the case that a standby switch makes absolutely no sense in a soundly designed tube amp (for guitar or HiFi). None of the legitimate technical tube manuals nor engineering books mention them. Guitar amps are the only tube amps that commonly employ a standby switch. Why? Primarily two reasons:

1) The majority of guitar amp builders blindly copy without applying critical thinking skills, avoiding the due diligence and attention detail required to find out the switch's original intended purpose.

2) Marketing. Guitarists expect a standby switch "just because" many of the old vintage amps were equipped with one. I wonder how many standby switches are actually dummy switches that serve absolutely no purpose.

Reference: "Power and Standby Switches" by Merlin Blencowe 

Peace.
