Please check out these great ClassicTone customer photos
This photo is compliments of Berrier Guitar & Amp Works and shows our ClassicTone # 40-18055 100W Marshall DSL style output transformer and our ClassicTone # 40-18058 choke. The choke, in the upper left hand corner of the chassis, is being used as an optional upgrade since the DSLs did not come with chokes. This photo is compliments Rob Souza of Dreamtone.org and shows (from left to right) our ClassicTone # 40-18032 5 Hy Marshall style choke, ClassicTone # 40-18025 50W Marshall JCM800 style output transformer and our ClassicTone # 40-18023 50W JCM800 style power transformer. This is just prior to their installation in the above JCM800 chassis.
This photo shows the transformers after the installation in Rob Souza's 50W JCM800. Nice job!

A customer photo of our ClassicTone # 40-18043 installed as an upgrade/mod in a modern Vox AC30CC2. Customer photo of our ClassicTone # 40-18072 installed as an upgrade/replacement in an original Marshall 100W Super Tremolo from 1968. It is the black output transformer in the center of the chassis. A customer photo closeup of our ClassicTone # 40-18072 in the vintage Marshall 100W Super Tremolo from 1968. This photo shows the large, beefy mounting brackets. This output transformer features a much wider bandwidth and greater 2.2K primary impedance. As a result, it is a great upgrade to the stock OT of that era. The customer commented..."The amp sounds so warm and smooth on channel two, I listened to the local smooth jazz station on it through my old Warfdale for a while, something that would NEVER HAPPEN with the normal nasty Marshall amp!" The customer also commented that it will require the easy drilling of two additional holes to accomodate the slightly larger footprint but otherwise, fits very nicely. Below are photos from David Schultz of an amplifier build featuring our ClassicTone part numbers 40-18025 OT, 40-18023 PT and 40-18032 choke for 50W Marshall style amplifiers. Here's what David says about his amplifier build and our transformers...."The design goal was to make the ultimate 50 Watt rock n' roll amp using only Classic Tone transformers. The circuit incorporates designs from the Marshall JCM800 2204 and the Soldano Avenger meshed together. The tube compliment uses 4 12ax7 preamp tubes and two E34L output tubes. The sound is incredible. Single channel with two levels of gain from the independant inputs. The chassis came from Triode USA and the head shell came from some guy on ebay who makes them". Below is a nice photo from Joe G. of his Fender Tweed Deluxe 5E3 Style build featuring our 40-18021 power transformer and our 40-18022 output transformer. These two transformers were replicated from originals from an actual vintage 5E3 amplifier.

Although I only used the output transformer in the rebuild of this original amp, I am very pleased with the sound of the transformer in this amp".
