All the Hammond OT's are interleaved, I think.
Don't know about other sources, but I'm sure R.G. does...

I was considering either the Hammond 50 watt OT with a 3.4K Primary;
Hoffman's 50 watt OT that has a 4.4K primary.
I've heard good things about both; plus a few neg. comments on hammond's OT, that they sound too hi-fi-ish. They both cost about the same. Anyone have opinions or other suggestions?

Probably the BIGGEST reason Hammond OTs get a semi-bad
Hi-Fi rap is because a few guys have used the wrong ones and they cost a lot of money.
They are rated at max power with actual max power and across their entire frequency range!
That means they are way too good.
A 50 watt Hammond OT is almost as good as a 100 watt guitar amp OT.
A 25-30 watt Hammond with the right Zed, will work great in any 50-60 watt guitar amp.
If you are looking for more saturation you might want a different OT.
Just make sure you use the right one.
Although Doug Hoffman does not make his on transformers, the guy that does his work is doing a very good job too.
