cheap power transformer for a hybrid setup.
« on: July 10, 2009, 02:00:10 PM »
I ran across a cheap power transformer on Ted Weber's site today and thought I would share. This would be helpful for anyone looking to build a hybrid amp with a tube preamp and a SS power amp. The price is great too at only $12! Do a search for "flea power" on that page and you'll find it.
Here's a direct link to the spec sheet:

275V CT @ 50mA secondaries and 6.3V @ 1A heater secondaries. Should be enough to run 2-3 preamp tubes from the 12xx7 family.
They even have a nice cheap OT for low wattage amps right below it. Perfect for the type of hybrid solution I'm after where the "preamp" section is really just a low wattage tube amp complete with preamp/power amp and OT running into a dummy load and tapped for further amplification by a high powered SS amp.
