    Anyone make a 50 watt plexi output transformer using 100 watt iron? I used to have a plexi clone with a Hoffman 50 watt OT. The hoffman used the same core for their 50 watt OT as their 100 watt OT and therefore the 50 watter sounded pretty much like a 100 if you pulled a couple tubes. IN OTHER WORDS HHHHHHHUUUUUUGGGGGEEEEEEE!

    I think that's what Mohave did with theur scorpion. The OT is massive.

    Heritage Colonial is (partly) based on the premise of getting the 100 watt sound in a 50 watt package. Excellent amp.

    Sorry, I should have clarified. I'm not looking for an amp. I'm looking for an output transformer.

    I'm sure it is, Call 'em Sergio and Paul are both pretty cool guys. I'm sure they could help you figure something out.
