australian supplier of hammond transformers?
hi everyone,  
i'm thinking of starting my third homebrew amp and i was going to try hammond transformers. problem is, i don't know of an australian supplier, and importing is pretty expensive at the moment. does anyone happen to know of a place i can get them? or any other options for that matter?  
up to now i've bought a couple OTs from a guy in brisbane who makes them, they're really good, but a tad expensive. i've made one PT and scavenged another.  
thanks for the input,

Have you tried asking Hammond?  
lists Farnell & Mayer Krieg as OZ distributors.  
Good luck!
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

But that would be logical!
