Hear what your amp is missing
Want better tone and feel from your amp? Upgrade your power transformer.
Your power transformer is one of the biggest factors in your tone and is the first step in delivering the right power to your tubes—making your amp come alive. When a vintage amp sounds bad, or makes no sound at all, it's time to replace the transformer. And many new amps use cheap, small transformers that hold back your tone. For any amp, a quality power transformer will amplify everything you already love about your tone.

Both your clean and dirty sounds will improve when you upgrade to a ClassicTone transformer. You'll hear why these amps are known for the revered "Fender" cleans and gritty overdriven sounds.
A special feature of these transformers is that the voltage is compensated for "tweed" series amps, and other later Fender models too. The heavier current capacity lets your amp run cooler, meaning better reliability and longer tube life too. This is important to protect your amp—since the 1950s wall voltages have increased above what the amp was designed for, changing the tone and potentially damaging the amp.
These transformers are made in the USA and every component is high quality:
- Wound like the vintage-era originals
- Custom, no-solvent varnish for correct vintage look
- Correct raised mountings—drops-in most chassis
- High quality wire, pre-tinned for easy soldering
- International voltage friendly: 120/240V
- Modern touches for better performance: flux band and center tap on the heaters
- RoHS Compliant
Not just for Princeton-style amps!
