ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*


ClassicTone is a new line of vintage constructed amplifier transformers by Magnetic Components, Inc. ClassicTone is the culmination of our decades of experience producing hundreds of thousands of our fine custom amplifier transformers for the amplifier industry.

We have been in business since 1943 in the Chicago area and have vast knowledge of quality transformer manufacturing for the military and amplifier industry. For many years now we have been producing our transformers for many known amplifier OEM's and resellers. In many cases, they are used in the OEM's own amplifier applications. In other cases, our transformers are resold as unidentified, USA made, generic, no name brands or under reseller/OEM brand names.

You may have one of our transformers in your amplifier now.

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

Welcome aboard! I used a Classic Tone OT in my first amp build and it sounds really nice. The prices are outstanding for a transformer of this quality, too.

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

We do have a new laydown power transformer in the works right now that will cover the Marshall/Drake 1202-118 as well as other Marshall laydown 45W or 50W power transformers. I am particularly excited by this one because it should cover most early 30W to 50W Marshall laydown style power transformer applications such as JTM 45 and JTM 50 that are both tube rectified and solid state rectified. It will also have the best, cool running and high performance M-6 steel in it. It will be very reasonably priced as well. It should be available sometime this October. We are awaiting the results of a sample provided to a customer before we proceed. Please check our website periodically for upcoming details at ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components, Inc..

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

How about a JTM45 choke? The only one I can find is the 50 or 100 watt.

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

Thanks JCMJMP. The amp I'm working on is a 6V6 version of a JTM45. Would I need the Marshall choke or a Fender Deluxe choke?

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

It sounds like you are looking for something more like a Fender Deluxe than a JTM 45 since you are requiring 6V6 tubes. The JTM45s were around 38 watts and used 2 x KT66 tubes. The Fender Deluxe amps are around 20 watts and had 2 x 6V6 tubes. We do offer Fender Deluxe transformers as well. The proper transformers to use for a Fender Deluxe style transformer are as follows:

Fender Output Transformer, Deluxe & Deluxe Reverb, 125A1A & 022640, 8 Ohm

Fender Output Transformer, Deluxe, Deluxe Reverb, 4/8 Ohm

Fender Power Transformer, Deluxe, Deluxe Reverb, Tweed Tremolux, 125P23B, 025130, 041316, 120V

Fender Vintage Style Choke, 50mA DC, 4 Hy, 125C3A & 022707 (this is the correct choke to actually use for a Deluxe amp)



Also, to determine the appropriate choke, please supply the DC current you require for your project. We do have some other chokes that are in development now besides our currently available 5 Hy Marshall choke and two Fender style chokes.

I have use 4 Classic Tone output transformers. JCM 800 50 watt, JCM 800 2203, Peavey Delta Blues, Peavey Triumph. They all sound excellent. The best part is there prices are fantastic. No need to worry here. These are great transformers well made and surpassed my expectations

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

my 5E3 kit triode electronics came with your transformers
probably a noob question, but how would you suggest mounting the power transformer to a combo chassis since it doesn't have the two tabs for mounting screws?

Like the original, our 5E3 power PT transformer is configured for laydown or through chassis style mounting. It is mounted by the 4 screws and not upright mounted by tabs or feet

I am assuming you did not buy the 5E3 chassis from Triode that they offer per the following link:

5E3 Chassis

This has the proper hole in the chassis where you mount the PT in a laydown or through chassis manner by the 4 screws. I am unsure if Triode offers the 4 #8-32 hex nuts needed to mount this but this is a common hex nut that can be purchased at a harware store.

We will eventually offer an upright, vertical mounted version of this as well with 4 end bell "feet" or "tabs" for upright style mounting that I think you are referring to here.

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

I just ordered a #40-18000 OT for an old Harmony 535 I'm restoring. Looking forward to hearing the two 6L6GC's roar again! I'm sure this transformer will be an excellent replacement for the original that died on me. I'll post some shots of the repair and maybe a before/after video.

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

Just wondering if there is a time frame on the JCM900 100 watt OT. I'm trying to decide if I should get the JMC800 OT and modify my chassis or wait for the one for the 900.

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

The JCM 900 OT is in the works now. I am hoping for it to be introduced in early to middle of November as it takes a few weeks to produce. It will be a nice vintage constructed paper layer wound OT like all of our ClassicTone's. Personally, I would wait instead of doing serious mods to your chassis. It isn't that far off.

Thanks for your interest in this upcoming item

Thanks, I'm just a little giddy to change the OT, I heard that it will improve the sound of my amp greatly and tighten it up, not that I don't like the way it sounds now. I think I can wait a few more weeks, lol! Thank again!!

Re: ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components *Sponsor*

Thanks RiverRatt! The 40-18000 is a great 50W Fender style OT transformer and has the best available, cool running M-6 steel in it. It also has speaker taps of 2 / 4 / 8 Ohms. It is a great priced part and we made over 250 pieces of these. The problem is that they do not sell well for some reason. I think this is one of our best and most versatile transformers we offer. It is one of the best values since we produced it in large volume and it has so many features. Although, it is probably is not very desirable for the Marshall enthusist who would like a good trannie for use with EL34's like our Marshall 50W Output Transformer for JCM 800 and JMP, 784-139, I think this is a great transformer for a 50W 6L6 tube application. See our 40-18000 as follows if you are interested in details on this part:

Fender Output Transformer, Hot Rod DeVille, Blues DeVille, Bassman, Super Reverb, Concert, 2/4/8 Ohm, M-6 Upgrade

F.Y.I., I want to let you all know that we will be offering some new Marshall style trannies coming this November as follows:

- JCM 900 PT & OT (which many of you here requested )

- Upright mounted version of 18W Marshall PT with multi-national voltages (great for builders / DIY guys!)

- JTM 45 /JTM 50 / Early JMP Multi-Purpose & Upgrade PT. This will feature multi-national voltages and can be used for both solid state and tube rectification applications.

Follow us on Facebook at ClassicTone | Facebook or see us at ClassicTone Transformers By Magnetic Components, Inc. for updated information as it becomes available.
