Re: Reading Schematics
Don's right : often times the power supply is assumed to be seperately diagrammed or just is not diagrammed at all. What that appears to say to you is : "if you can make 300V, at whatever current the circuit draws, any way you do it is OK."  
However, it's not true. Power supply design, especially in instrument amps, has a large effect on sound, so it's usually helpful to know what was used with a particular audio circuit.
