This is just a small list of useful resources I've found
the years. If you know of a resource you'd like included here, just let me know.
Great place to buy tubes and related components like
as transformers and other stuff useful for building tube amps.
Massive stock of electronic components, evey type of
resistor, transistor, transformer, connector, and IC imaginable for
high and low voltage circuits. I think they're mainly there to sell to
industry, but there's no minimum order and they're pretty hobbyist
Similar to Mouser, but they have somewhat better prices
their high-voltage capacitors.
Same type of supplier as Mouser and Allied, if you can't
you're looking for at the other two, you might find it here.
They only sell low-voltage components, but their prices
Excellent place to buy connectors, resistors, and low-voltage
capacitors. It's also a great place to find obsolete ICs that you can't
get anywhere else, and the only place I know where you can get cheap
SMD-to-DIP adaptor boards. Mainly setup to supply hobbyists, they even
accept single part orders, but since they're based overseas, shipping
takes a while.
The cheapest and easiest place to get speaker parts and
sell a wide variety of drivers, from cheap little $2 replacement
speakers all the way up to high end stuff from Focal and Morel. They
also sell a variety of tubes and transformers.
Old-timey amp, radio, and TV schematics.
I love this guy. He has a massive collection of antique
and other audio gear that he's restored. His site was the inspiration
for this section of my site.
Great book to learn about tube tech in general. Lots of
about tubes, tube theory, etc... (PDF, 73MB)
Datasheets for most transistors, integrated circuits,
Pinouts and rating for every type of vacuum tube.
