Thank you all guys for your support, I think this could be made a very interesting sticky post for European users.

Do you know any Edcor european supplier?

Hi

Majestic Transformers in the UK are very good. They've custom built several one off power supply transformers and chokes for me. They guaranteed that their vacuum impregnated designs would run quietly, and so they have! Unlike those from several other suppliers, which have buzzed like a hornet's nest....

They supply a quotation, listing the specification and pricing. Turn around has been 1- 2 weeks. Just be sure you know exactly what you need- and specify it properly. I caused some, in retrospect justified, irritation by asking for several design changes before I finally ordered. Which is not to say that they won't help initially with points not obvious to the relative novice.

I've no experience of their signal- e.g. output- transformers

I hardly doubted there are EU distributors, moreover Lundals are of a much better bandwidth pricier though. In case one is limited on a budget tubes definitely not the most appealing DIY approach from price/performance point of view. OT choice is critical matter to achieve satisfaction from tube project. Lundal, Tamura, Tango investment might make sense.

Just in case you are leaning towards SET some extra tips that might be interesting
