Default Differences in inductors?

I'm scrounging through recycled parts to find suitable inductors for a PS CRC filter for my tube IGC (see JLTi thread).

Is one of the following types of inductors more suitable for a CRC filter (other than the obvious differences in inductance and compactness)? The one on the left is from a speaker crossover and measures 0R6, and the one on the right is from a switching PS and measures 0R3:

You mention tubes (though I don't find the thread on that board); I can only assume your power supply will operate on 50 or 60Hz.

The chokes shown are for filtering HF; the speaker crossover for cutting high-F audio, the line filter for >50kHz to remove line noise from switching supplies, which would otherwise put unacceptable junk upstream of the supply.
You need a choke which looks more like a transformer, one with an iron core.

Leadbelly,

The one on the right is a common-mode-choke. Here are some threads on these.
Using common mode chokes in filament supply.
Could this be the perfect coils for Aleph's PS?

Thanks.

Well, it sounds like neither of those is very good. Would another inductor from a xover work, one with a laminated steel core?

This is for the tube IGC in Chip Amp forum. Draw is on the order of milliamps, so I just want to recycle something from the tons of parts I have.
