    I'm gathering parts to clone/build a Multivox Premier 50 amplifier. There are a number of them throughout the years, I'm interested in the 6X4 - 12AX7- 6L6GB model built circa 1959. I've got all the parts except the output tranny. Any thoughts on sourcing the correct OT for this build would be helpful. I'm thinking 5,000 Ohm , like the weber WSE15 https://tedweber.com/media/import/wse15sch.JPG or the classic tone or a Mercury magnetics https://www.mercurymagnetics.com/2018/wp-content/uploads/shop/specsheets/SE-5K-M.pdf

    Would these do the trick? - I've used classic tones in the past and like them -

    Not sure why the mercury magnetics cost so much?

    I have a new weber speaker that's 8ohm

    Yes. With a duet of 6L6, a 5K pl. to pl. / 4-8-16R would be convenient. 6K pl. to pl. is also OK.

    That's what I used on my Paul GUILHEM Deluxe and Junior amps, for 25 and 23W RMS clean tone respectively, with a PSU at 400VDC at OPT CT :

    I'd rather choose a Hammond transformer (for Fender amp) than rebadged Weber...

    So this is a single ended little amp, output tube is a single 6L6GB
