I'm using the Hammond 374BX power transformer with good success. I would use one again without hesitation.

Hammond transformers (Canada) have been around a very, very long time and their quality has always been outstanding, especially the older stuff. Those had a reputation that you could push them 1.5 times over their nameplate ratings safely because of their very conservative design.

thanks ,

how much does the 374BX cost there ??

cause maybe it would be better for me to order it form Canada ...

as all the times that I have ordered stuff from U.S.A mainly, they were much more cheaper (even with the shiping cost) than buying them from greece ..

DimZ 31st October 2008 02:03 PM

it would be great tho, if there was the chance to order them alltogether , could save me great bucks ...


I see that the HAMMOND 372JX price here in Greece is 125 euro - thats about 165 us dollars ... is this a fair price ???

They are 150.00 USD at parts connexion here in Canada not including shipping so that seems fair.

glad to hear that, so I guess I'll go for it

They are $107.80 USD + shipping here in the states @ AES. If I was overseas, I don't think I'd mind paying $150. Good luck with your project, I'm ordering mine and all the parts on Monday. Be sure to check out Ty's thread on his Simple SE build. He has a lot of good info documented. There are numerous other Simple SE threads as well that I have found very helpful as well.

notice that 165$ has the 372JX in greece not the 374BX, if the 108 $ price is for the 374 there is a huge gap ......

i checked out Ty's thread, very useful indeed ....

and good luck to u too

Sorry for the confusion. That $107.80 price is for the 374BX. The 372BX is $117.85 USD from the same supplier.
