Default Hammond/ tube guitar amp transformers in New York

Hey guys,
I've been thinking about building a tube guitar amp for a while now, but I live in Australia where any tube transformer is fairly prohibitively expensive. My folks have just left on a holiday in New York, I was wondering if anyone knows of any suppliers of Hammond or other brands of tube transformers? Preferably somewhere they could go in and pick them up off the shelf rather than have to order them, as they won't be there very long.
Thanks!

Power transformer or Output transformer ?? also remember that any American power transformer will run at a different voltage than in the US .... I believe austrailia does 230v and they use 120v in the US .......

I have another option if your flexable...

I'm working on a deal and should have in stock next week
and have a sample pair in my warehouse;

Chuang Meei 220/240V Power Transformer 45th week of 2009 D/C

Chuang Meei 6L6 - 4500 Ohm - 50 Watt Output transformer same
date code.

I think I will be selling these as a pair for $50.00
These are NEW Surplus

I can also put these 2 in a USPS Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate
box and ship to you in Australia for $48.50

So the package of 2 will be $98.50.

Hi steve, that sounds very interesting.
Could you give me some more details of the power transformers?
Would it be possible for my parents to pick these up from you directly to avoid shipping?
Thanks! Mitch.
