||Power xfmr around 300vdc when rectified?|
I wanna run some EL84's at about 300v and have at least 90ma for them, and 10 ma for the udder stuff.
Hammond is too much voltage and no copper strap, Allen is too high a voltage, Fender's (Blues Jr?) pp el84 pst is only 68 ma.(Any comments on this xfmr?)
Has any one any hint at where I might find the above 300v, 100ma beast?

So you are going for about 30 watts? PT from commercial amps of similar size ought to work. PV Classic 30 comes to mind (320v), or the Crate ones.

if you don't mind running two xfmrs (assuming you are not using a tube rectifier) 230V 100ma xfrmrs are only $15, or 190mA for $20, and will bridge rectify to about 320V. A seperate filament xfmr is also cheap...

Thanks, guys, I appreciate your time.

Again, I appreciate both replies.
The multi-transformer solution isn't practical for this app, but I appreciate the low $ idea.
My follow up question is: where can I buy a Peavy Classic 30 power transformer for the least?
