    A kind someone has just given me a Hammond 1750F output transformer. A quick search says it is a replacement OT for a Fender Blues Junior, with a 8 ohm, 15w output and primary of 6,950 ohms.

    Could this be used in a 6G2 circuit?

    It ought to work pretty well, the primary winding is pretty close to the spec for a deluxe.

    Might just have to adjust the rectified By+ dropping resistors. Even with a full bridge ss rectifier you might be a bit short. Overall, slightly just less power.

    I'm trying to find something available in the UK as I'm here at the moment, but not many have the 220V Wall voltage for Hong Kong. Its all 240 taps. The mojotone one will do it but its expensive to ship...
