SPICE programs (Circuitmaker Alternatives)?
Hi there,  
Are there any decent "free" SPICE programs with tube data available? I will be taking "E E 215 Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering" at the UW soon, and was hoping to get a head start (hoping to build amps full time after I retire next year). I am currently using circut maker pro. Googling gives me 20 bajillion hits.  
Thank you for your time,  
Frank Russo

Anasoft's SuperSpice is quite good (Windows) and I think the student price is reasonable if not free. Written by a guitarist/EE named Kevin Aylward, who's a good egg.  
Also, your school may have academic discounts on something.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
