Re: Dumble Clone Parts: Trannies etc...
"Gil: Lets not forget the batch of OD-Specs using MusicMan Trannies as well. As rumor has it, HAD bought up the remaining stock when MM left the Amp business. I've seen and serviced a couple of these amps, with the whopping 710 volts on the plates of the 4 EL34's !. Many of the pots are also NOS MM parts.  
They still sound great, despite whatever iron he puts in... af"
Since the guy was asking about what kind of transformers to use, the MM was not an option -- you said it, Dumble bought them all when they closed down!  
Interesting that you servied some of those amps. Would you care to comment on the power supply arrangement? Some say that the choke was only used to feed the screens and the rest of the amp used dropping resistors only... Any contributions to make, Andy?
