Question New Hammonds?

I have been cruising the Hammond website and noticed they now have some pretty nice looking potted output transformers?

1650KP- 50W - 3,400 ct 4-8-16 11lbs
1650PP- 60W - 6,600 ct 4-8-16 12lbs
1650RP 100W -5,000 ct 4-8-16 18lbs

They are listed in the catalog download.
http://www.hammondmfg.com/pdf/5C00.pdf

Anyone have any working info on these yet?

They are also now selling a complete line of drop in replacements for a large number of guitar amps.

This might be the beginning of some good things.

I think they've made the potted 1650's since the dawn of time, but they're a lot more expensive than a normal 1650...

I had never seen the potted versions in the online catalog prior to yesterday.

I was very surprized that they have ventured into the replacement market for guitar amps and thought that might be a new product also.

The guitar amp transformers are probably new.. I'm not sure why you didn't see the potted 1650 series outputs on the site sooner. I downloaded a spec for these quite a few years ago from their site, concluded for the money I could probably do better elsewhere. (This is before I abandoned PP in favor of SE so it is long, long ago.) I do remember it took some hunting around to find them, but the details now escape me.
