Default Large 9pin socket needed

I have some old 9pin (similar to octal size with 9 pins) RCA mic input transformers that I love the sound of! Problem is, I can't implement them until I get a female panel mount socket for them! Anyone got any, or a referral to where I can source some?
Thanks!

Hi,

Look for novar and magnoval sockets. One of these should fit.

Cheers,

Both the novar and magnoval sockets probably won't fit the transformers, as the transformers likely have pin sizes similar to the usual octal tube. I have a pair of transformers that have 11 pins, and I found some relay sockets to accommodate them. 9-pin sockets are made that will fit the octal pin size. You may be able to find some on E-prey. Surplus Sales of Nebraska has them, but they ain't cheap. A Google search for "9-pin octal-style socket" will shake out a few other sources.

Ah...Indeed, if the pins are the same size as the octal one then the relay sockets are what you need.
Not sure if these exist in the typical octal tube socket style though.

Surplus Sales of Nebraska has them, look under medium tube sockets, pretty expensive though.

Wow! Those are pricey! $16 each. Thanks for all the awesome tips. I'm gonna keep looking, with Surplus Sales of Nebraska as my backup. I have some in an old RCA public address chassis. They are riveted into the chassis and I don't want to damage them during removal.

The cheapest on the web I've seen so far for a 9-pin octal is $15 at Pacific TV in Canada.
A tip - try emailing Anchor Electronics Anchor Electronics | Silicon Valley's Parts Store and asking nicely - they may still have some in their miscellaneous rack near the front door. You may need to throw in some other stuff to make their minimum for a mail order. Any way you go about it, it looks like you're going to have to lay down some coin....
