Searching for a power transformer for an AKG C12 build.
« on: June 30, 2012, 02:13:04 PM »
Hello,
I've had a friend help me build a AKG C12 clone ala Oliver Archut's mod. I'm having a hard time finding a Power Transformer. Can anyone recommend somewhere to look in North America? here are the suggested spec's:
Power transformer - not less than 15W, the anode 130 - 150V, no less than 10mA, the heater 10 - 12V, not less than 0,6 A

I have some extra toroids, spec'd at 120v:135v/40mA, 9v/500mA. I had these custom wound for a G7 PSU. PM me if you want one. I'm in North America. (They were mistakenly wound for 50Hz, which isn't problem in 60Hz land, (60 at 50 can be) which may account for the slighly higher secondary voltage. PM me if interested.
not my thing. I am here just to unbalance the equation --pucho812

Thanks for the replies. That Hammond 262E12 should do the trick. Isn't Oliver"s t-14 is an output transformer?
I plan on trying a vintage oktava mk13 capsule in this (not pictured). I had the capsule in a lomo 19a9 (using only one side) and it sounded great. Any thought on this?
