    Looking at building a Weber bassman kit. Just wondering if the transformers they provide do a good job, or is the upgrade to Mercury Magnetics worth it ???

    IMHO the answer is a resounding yes.

    Subjective...but it's your ears that need satisfied no matter what anyone else thinks ;).

    However, FWIW, while I haven't done any A/B'ing with the Weber transformers in my homebrew amp, I can't find much to complain about with them.

    The Weber iron is definitely good...not necessarily great.
