Re: What about MAGNETOSTRICTION
I can't even SPELL magnetostriction, but I remember a long talk about transformers I received from Gar Gillies (Garnet Amplifiers). The bottom line was that Hammond was notorious for this 'buzzing', and Gar had been 'fixing' them for years by wedging a thin wood shim between the laminations and the windings. I have done the same proceedure, and it works. Hammond has a history of using 'boiler plate' for their laminations (bad).
