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 ..

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.

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.
