Hi,

Would be interested in hearing from anyone who has used a FAB BV8, BV11 style transformer or a ribbon mic transformer in there mod, new build etc.. If you have any interesting photos of a mod let me know.

Much appreciated,

Chris

I can recommend these transformers, I used his ribbon transformers, V8 for u47 clones, V8fet for 47fet clones, all of them are great, here is a jazz sample from French jazz band Pulcinella(used a ribbon pair for drum OH, and a V8 for u47 clone for sax:

Just put a V8F in a D47FET clone.  Very impressive results!  Highly recommended!

I built two U47 clones with V8 and original VF14 tubes. For my ears V8 much better than AMI and more "u47- sh". Highs are clear and soft . Great midrange. No muddy areas. A bit differs from Haufe , but ImHO they are in they same league, both are great.
