...or use a switcher running off the 12 V winding. That's what I use.

Modulus-86: Composite amp achieving 0.000067 % THD. Damn Good 300B, Novar Spud, 21st Century Maida Reg., Filament Reg., etc.

I can. 6.3V+6.3V, pair of Shottky diodes, 15,000 microfarad cap, and MOSFET, getting 6.3V regulated and well filtered.

Here is 12.6V version attached, for 6.3V I use 5.6V Zener.
