Re: tweed replica transformers
Thanks for the replies, guys.  
My problem is that I don't want to build many amps. I just want to build a few. A 5E3, a 5F1, and a 5F6a. I don't really have the resources to try out many different tweed replica transformers. I'm going to be stuck with what I buy for a while.  
My best source of info regarding output transformers is just looking up Harmony Central user reviews. For example, if you look up the Clark Amplification Beaufort 1x12 combos (their 5E3 style amp), there are almost thirty reviews, and people *really* rave about those amps.  
By those reviews, I can assume that Clark's OTs are pretty good.  
OTOH, Victotia amps seem to get mixed reviews.  
Not very scientific, but it's all I have to go on.  
If anyone here has any comments to offer regarding tweed style transformers they've tried out, it would still be much appreciated.
