How to select proper transformer for tube amplifier builds Example 6AQ5 Class A guitar amp

Many have asked this question. How do I make sure I have selected the right power transformer for my tube amp build. Well, here is an easy method. You dont have to be a star fleet science officer to figure this one out. Just set up a bench test and see what you get under load. This is a basic test, that will ensure you can achieve the required voltage & current capability desired. I use this method all the time along with tube data charts. Another fine free tech tip from d-lab electronics!
