    I'm building a JTM45 clone with two Stancor transformers:

    PT - PC8412

    Pri. 117 @60cy
    Secondary - 400-0-400 @200
    5v @3A
    6.3v @5A

    OT - A8053

    Push pull with the primary 5k ohm plate to plate load res at 150ma
    Secondary has taps for 8 and 16 ohms
    50 max audio

    I'm looking at using a either a 5Y3GT or a 5R4WGB for the rectifier.

    Crazy? Doable??

    Any input would be amazing.

    If I was doing it, I think I would save the Stancors for an American-style build. I would likely invest in something like Heyboer,Mercury, Merren, Marstran or Classic Tone iron-the more usual suspects. Of course if the amp is strictly for yourself, and not likely to get sold down the line, well...?
    Of course,I am not an amp-builder, merely an amp-user and appreciator.
