Re: OT design
I don't know very much about this, but I've been told there's a rating for lamenations on transfomers. My understanding it may have to do with dampning values. I spoke with Ken Fisher a couple of years ago and he said he used the #6 lamanent as opposed to #22 as used by Fender. I've had it confirmed by a guy I know who is a transfomer builder, who told me most all of the english amps used the #6 for their transformers. Maybe that's part of the reason english amps typically have a tighter sound.(More dampning from the transfomer. Not enough dampning provided by feed backloop.
