~ Schematic Diagrams & Service Information ~

The following is a list of Valve and some classic Transistor equipment schematic diagrams and some service information

To increase clarity and or reduce the file sizes some have been traced redrawn and output in Adobe Acrobat pdf format

Where possible I redraw schematics in the original style and layout so there may be a few inaccuracies ~ please let me know and I will correct them ~ Where components are concerned I generally use common symbols for basic parts i.e. an electrolytic capacitor is drawn in the old British style and looks like where the shaded end is negative ~ The American symbol would be where the curved side is negative

I have elected to use the British symbol for many redrawn schematics ~ Resistors are drawn which is common to nearly all older schematics and looks like a difficult path for current or even a heating element which is actually what it is! ~ The box symbol indicates nothing but I use it for the day job and some schematics that I produced for this site using my schematic and analysis software

Another area to look out for is junctions ~ most older schematics used bridges to show wires that cross later becoming a simple cross + where Junctions are marked with dots ~ As a rule however drawn no more than 3 wires should meet at a junction ~ I use bridges or simple crosses with junction dots (often coloured differently in EDA) and more than 3 wires at junctions if it reflects the original style and is obvious how connected

Beard Audio P35 valve power amp circuit modified to remove the problem d.c. input coupling and the active bias circuit ~ parallel valve amplifiers need good output transformers which the original does not have ~ and separate resistor biasing helps prevent them melting down with inevitable valve mismatch
