After reading I think I made a mistake. I wanted some massive transformers but what did I get ?

I have two of those. One like it and one that is larger with two rectifier tubes. It's a power supply section out of a Hammond amp. Hammond many times used to build the power supply in it's own chassis. You may have to replace some of the caps. It is a DC power supply.

You got a good deal. Each of those could power a small stereo amp. or build a pair of high powerd monoblocks. I would leave them as is. Keep them in the chassis

If you don't like them you'd have no problem selling for what you paid

Thanks

What kind of power could I get out of using these as a pair of Mono's?

I am looking for the most I can get, I have some new 6550 tubes.

Suggestions on OPT for this and a design to go off of?


Thanks
WO
