    Hello everyone, i have an old full tube Farfisa amp. Unfortunately, the driver transformer for reverb is shot. Primary windings read open circuit. Secondary reads about 4Ω.

    It uses a ECL86. I have an OT from an old parts tube radio (Wega Stuttgart 837) that uses an EL84 for output tube.

    ECL86 pentode = EL84

    Can i use this OT for my reverb driver?

    That shoud work just like the original. The pentode section of the ECL86 is similar to an EL84.
