Default good value (i.e. cheap) OPT in uk?

Hi,

You have edcor and cheap hammonds in the states, but where can i find a resonable priced pair of OPT's for an 'el cheapo'. in fact, i would like to get all my iron in the eurozone (power tranformers too).

Thanks

adam.

Also try using a search engin. That's what they're for.

Adam,

Although Sowter are very fine, they are also very expensive and hence do not meet your requirements.

Instead look to http://www.bluebellaudio.com/ (Dundee) who import Hammond into the UK.

Also chat to Danbury (Essex) who may be able to help: http://www.danburyelectronics.co.uk/
Here is their other site: http://livinginthepast-audioweb.co.uk/xformer.html

Regards,
G.

Although the office is in Belgium, Edcor does have a European affiliation. I bet someone in the UK can get you Edcor OPTs at a fair price.

Sowter are very good but pricey.

If you want something cheap try Maplin, they sell O/P and power transformers.
