I am in the midst of collecting parts for my small bassamp project. Can anybody tell me what are the specifications for the phase splitter transformer, output transformer and power transformer.  
I am very puzzled with the output voltage from the power transformer shown in the schematic of the fender field guide. It shows 245V at the output of the transformer before rectification and 295V for the B+ after rectification and filtering. Isn't it a bit dangerous for the caps to be rated at 300V. Anybody to enlighten me.
