current queries ?
hi all Ben in dublin eire here - I am building a 5D3 deluxe 'clone' and I have 2 hammond power trans to pick from -- one is rated 50 ma and one is 100 ma -- both have adequate heater current -- if I use the smaller one will I just get a lower wattage version of the amp or will the trans be stressed and malfunction ? thanks everyone !

If you suck too much current from a transformer it will heat up and fail prematurely ......

It is better to use a transformer that is too big than too small ....

yes i will use the bigger one -- I will use the 50ma for a small SE 6v6 6AQ5 or 6973 build -- thanks !
