FDP Forum / Fender Amps: Vintage (before 1985) / Tweed Deluxe Transformer in 67 Deluxe



Feb 21st, 2016 08:33 AM   Edit   Profile   Print Topic   Search Topic

Hi gang. Just got a 67 Drip edge AB763 DR with a new output transformer. I have a 1954 Tweed transformer lying around and was wondering if it would work in the amp. If so how would it change the sound?

Probably not much difference. They both are 6V6 push/pull output transformers with an 8 ohm speaker secondary. Personally I don't think old power transformers are necessarily better sounding just because they are older. I'd probably swap them out and listen for bass response more than anything else. Whichever was better I would leave in there.

What I personally notice is that a high quality OT offers up a bit better bass response that's louder and tighter (especially when the amp is cranked and clipping) compared to an average OT.
