    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.

    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.

    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..

    Yes, the JCM 900 style transformers will be in the works in the upcoming months. There has been good interest in these and we will be happy to bring them to you.

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

    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?

    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

    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. :)
