Anybody have any experience with HandWoundTransformers?

How do they perform?

How do they compare to other transformers, like electra-print, magnequest or One Electron?

Do a search on them in AudioAsylum.

A synopsis would be something like "if you wait a really long time, you'll get something that's worth what you paid for it:.

I ordered a pair of outputs for a pp/ul EL-84 power amp I'm designing. Delivery was slow (I waited a long time).

They are actually quite nice. The finish was well done. Completely better looking than Hammonds with those fugly industrial knockouts.

These are the 7.6k primary, 25 watt models. I haven't put them on the bench to give you a high f3 figure and my signal generator only goes down to 15 hz but I believe they're pretty good. The prototype is running on Dyna Z-565s and when I temporaried the Handmades in, I only had to pull the high end in a little to re-stabilize the amp. Very few transformers can stay with a Z-565 at high f3. They sounded wonderful.

Well... As Reddy said... again and again (), it took a loooooooooooooooooong time to get them. I got their single ended ones. Haven't had the chance to try them yet. By the time I got them the time to play came and went.

But they do look beautiful. I will let all know how they sound when I get the chance FWIW.
