Hear what your amp can really do
Upgrade your power transformer for better performance and better tone.
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 more clarity in your clean tone and more dynamics when you overdrive the amp.
A special feature of these transformers is they offer an additional winding for reduced B+ (the highest voltages in your amp), giving the period-correct plate voltage to your tubes. Since the 1950s wall voltages have increased above what the amp was designed for, changing the tone and potentially damaging the amp. These transformers give your amp the correct vintage tone, and longer tube life too.
These transformers are made in the USA and every component is high quality:
