Fender Pro Reverb 1973. Silverface

Postby Indie on Mon Jun 13, 2016 10:12 am

Hi people....

Here is an 1973. Pro Reverb.... It needs to be repaired recaped etc....

Main thing is power transformer which is not its own.... someone put this giant trany....

For the begining of this journey.... can anyone suggest best possible replacement power transformer currently on the market for this oldboy?

Thanks a lot

Alek

p.s.

we need 220v version...sometimes 240v...
Will it work well on 220v if it is declared on 240v?

Here are two options we found:

Hammond 290 DEX should be great and Tube Town are an excellent vendor in the EU http://www.tube-town.net/ttstore/Transf ... :2151.html

If setting the bias with 220V mains, keep it cool and then it should be ok on 240V mains.
ie don't set it to push the power tubes to 70% of their limiting plate dissipation at idle, maybe keep it below 60%.

Most Fender amp I fix play good with colder bias, 60 % or less. They don't play better at 70%
