Our new book uses these calculators to design preamp stages, cathode followers, tone stacks, power amps, phase inverters, negative feedback, and power supplies.

guitar amp preamp output impedance circuit

What does this calculator do?

The calculator calculates a triode amplifier's unloaded voltage gain (the gain without being connected to the next stage) and output impedance based on the triode's characteristics, resistor values, and whether or not the cathode resistor is fully bypassed by a capacitor CK.
