I’m interested in these. What are the costs of your parts?

Some of you pointed me in the direction of Cyril Jones clones, but after various e-mails I wasn't able to reach him.

Paolo

Hello Paolo, I sent you a PM, I really think the Lustraphone Clones from Cyril are really the best option for this project.
The Sowter transformer is not a clone, it's a Lustraphone replacement transformer made by Sowter, Im pretty sure it's good but not a clone of the original thing.

I would like to help you out get in touch with Cyril.

I have great news guys!

I get Cyril Jones, here is his mail:

Hello Ivan.
 
Many apologies for disappearing for such a long while recently.  Several projects have inundated me with work and I just switched off Raindirk for a while, also became quite tired.
Will be putting lids on another batch of transformers tomorrow.
 
I will have EQ coils as well very soon
 
Again apologies and now getting back on track.
 
Regards,
 
Cyril
 

So we can count on Cyril Jones....

I contacted Cyril Jones and he is affirmative for the Lustraphone transformers. I'm beginning to design the new pcbs

Hi,

I have exchanged two (2) emails with Cyril Jones who said that he has some transformer ready and is thinking about doing inductors too for the helios pre eq but then when I asked if a could purchase two transformers to tryout he never answered again.
I don't know what to say..-

Maybe ask if he has a minimum order? Do you think he was offended , thinking you were unsure of his quality?

For what it's worth, I was corresponding with Jim Dowler (ex-Olympic) recently and he said he'd also had some supply issues with Cyril. I think Jim was planning to reissue the Lustraphone himself, though I don't know if he's planning to sell to the public - it's a potential avenue to explore though. You can reach him via his website:

I have had a similar experience with Cyril Jones, he took months to reply to my initial contact, I have then managed to exchange a couple emails and he seemed keen on selling me some transformers to try out, then he disappeared again and I haven't heard back from him ever since. Weird...

Good to know there is possibly an alternative out there

I dont hink so. He would not get offended with that.

I bought 2 transformers from him some years ago and he was fine with that and very helpful.

I dont really know whats going on at the moment and why he is not quick to reply.

Maybe insisting by email?
Anyone has a Phone number?
