I created WTF Amps because when I was a tube beginner I had trouble finding a resource that explains tube amplifiers in a simplistic and entertaining way. WTF Amps is the ELI5 (explain like I’m five) approach to vacuum tubes. Note: I do not recommend that five year olds build tube amps. 

I might swear on some of the write ups. I might also oversimplify certain concepts. But I would rather be mostly correct and entertaining than technically obsessive and boring as shit. WTF Amps is about the joy of discovery, not the measuring of technical genitals.

You can help create even better projects and resources through your support on Patreon.  Your pledges go towards new equipment and project parts for designs and resources that I will publish for all to enjoy. Patronage is calculated on a per design basis (full designs posted as permanent 'Projects', not short blog posts).

The Ground Floor
$1 or more per Published Design 4 patrons
You just joined my Patreon supporters. You now have access to project and page development sneak peaks (including schematics that are never published on the website).  You are also helping to improve WTF Amps and vacuum tube DIY in general.   You are awesome!   
First Dibs
$5 or more per Published Design 2 patrons
You are doing the lord's work by funding the project/neurosis.  Beyond sneak peaks, you'll have access to parts offers and free PCBs every time I create (and test) one for a project.  I tip my soldering iron to you!
Guardian Angel
$25 or more per Published Design 1 patron
As a WTF Amps Guardian Angel, you will be prominently featured as a website sponsor on WTF Amps (in addition to all other perks).  Your generosity helps WTF Amps help others achieve their vacuum tubey dreams.  I owe you a beer.
Goals
$48 of $100 per Published Design
With $100 of consistent funding, I will be able to self-host the website and you'll enjoy additional functionality like a forum, a more regular blog, and other community features.
