Default Partridge Vs Edcor

Hi,

This is an old chestnut, however I am looking at shipping costs of Edcor and comparison with Partridge.

Is it worth shipping Edcore how much am I going to gain? or is it better to go with Partridge.

Looking at Edcore GXSE10-8-5K and XPWR146-240 for a quick project.

I have E-mailed Edcor for cost. I will let you know the outcome!
This is linked to the SE post previously.

Regards
M. Gregg

I notice that on the Edcor website it requires you to register before you can get a shipping cost. This I think is a bad oversight on the part of Edcor, because people will not commit to an unknown cost. If it is to high then OK it's to high, however if it’s OK they are loosing custom!
I am trying to be constructive for Edcor!

If anyone has some info regards quality of sound Etc please post!

Regards
M. Gregg

you can register without buying anything - with the advantage that it keeps a record of stuff you've looked at so you don't have to scribble it down somewhere on a piece of paper you will later misplace

Hello,
I buy Edcor because i like the performance.
A secondary benifit is the pricing. In your case there is shipping and all that blue water in between.
I do not care for the Edcor registration process, they ask for personal information other vendors do not.

All just for fun!

DT,

Thank's for posting.
I have registered with Edcor they show shipping for 2X output and 1X power Tx as $53 (estimated) which seems quite good.
You have to remember these are small SE Tx.
I will probably place an order and hope they don't hike the cost.

It's interesting to see that there are not many comments. I thought there would be more takers. I guess those that use Edcor stick with them. Those that use Tango etc don't comment.
Interesting (No Partridge takers) "In a Pear tree"

When I know more I will post info!

I have been using Hammond in my amps,i order them from Holland(jukebox-revival)and shipping is free for over 100E order,but the Edcor is less than half price,and i am considering to make a order from them.
I didnt know that Partridge was making tranformers again,i think their OPTs were very good,were used i the best guitar amps,i have a Hiwatt amp with Partridge power tranformer and OPt and still works perfect.

Hello M Gregg,
If you want to stimulate the US economy you might also consider Electra-Print transformers. Jack is more conservative with power ratings, his transformers are industrial looking, audiophile, weigh more and cost in the range of double + of the Edcorís. Jack seems not to add to actual shipping costs.
Two calling birds!
