Re: Another spitfire question: OT
I thought you you were talking about the Blues Junior - that amp uses a 2xEL84 output stage and a fairly small OT with 8K primary Z. The Blues Deluxe is a 2x6l6 amp, right? Then, the primary Z is probably in the 4-5K range. Did you use this OT in a 2xEL84 circuit? Connecting a 4 ohm speaker to the 8 ohm tap would result in a primary Z around 2K or so. This is probably lower than you want to run from the point of view of reliability.
