    Dave Hunter - The Guitar Amp Handbook. Very clear and understandable book on not just how tube amps work, but a good bit of why, plus some examining of classic circuits.

    Aspen Pittman - The Tube Amp Book. Handy more for its collection of schematics than any revolutionary info, but there's some excellent material contained within.
