where can I get the primary impedance and inductance for a Drake 784-213 output transformer?
The impedances of the secondaries were
labeled 3.75, 7.75 and 15 Ohms.
The trannie has the same size as the Drake's in
Marshall 50W amps (labeled 784-139).
The Drake Web Site doesn't contain any info and I
guess the folks working there are too busy to
care for historical data.

thanks for the link!
On Marstran.com I found
" This OT is from a Carlsbro amp and is used with EL34 tubes. " Carlsbro is an english company.
Meanwhile I measured the primary inductance and impedance of the Drake 784-213:
Lprim ~ 20 Henry
Zprim ~ 4.3k (assuming 4,8 and 16 Ohms secondaries)
From EL34 datasheets I know that for B+ around 375V
the Zprim is usually 3.4k, but for those circuits
with B+ close to 500V Zprim is 4k.
On the other side the 6L6GC fixed bias push pull
primaries are 5.6k in data sheets, but transformers
offered for Fender and Boogie amps come along
with 4.4k to 5k primaries.
Does anybody have experience with the change in
tone of EL34's with 4.3k / 4.4k primaries - or
simply speeaking Fender style OTs - in comparison
with 3.4k primaries?
