I can't find a listing for them. I assume they are out of business. I can't even find a review of the Antique Sound USA PA-3 preamp.

I need a transformer of some type so I can fire this thing up.

Hi Joe,

Have you looked at the Hammond site?

They may have something usefull, probably not on a single xformer but still better than nothing at all.

Cheers,

I FOUND A TRANSFORMER WITH THE FOLLOWING SPECIFICATIONS. 6.3 volts/2A 100volts/30ma and 250volts/50ma

Does this sound ample to run 3 5814A's? The listing of tubes says: 12AX7, 12AU7, 6sn7 X 4

Does this sound like its ample in size to you?

thanks
Joe

The entire tubelisting looks odd to me...

3 x5814 which are just 12Au7S + what? a 12AX7, yet another
12AU7 and than 4 6SN7s?

For a linestage this is rather hard to believe unless some (say 3/4) of the valves are used as regulators...which I somehow feel is quite unlikely...

Back to the drawing board I'd say,

Sorry to confuse you. The information on the transformer states that it can run 12AX7,12AU7, and 6sn7 times four. I would assume it means it has enough guts to run 4 12AX7's or 4 12AU7's or 4 6sn7's.

The preamp I purchased has only 3 5814A's in it so I would assume the transformer should be ample to run it.

I ran across another preamp with the same schematic as the Antique Sound USA. I will try to attach a schematic.
