Western Electric 618B Input Transformer
One day, we've been chatting casually with one of our customers about Western Electric sound, and transformers. They're interested in the WE 618B, that is sky high in price for an original pair - U$6,500 - U$7,000/pair (wow... that's crazy!).
We dug our repair logs years ago and found that we have actually repaired them before, and we have recorded down all the winding details, plus the core physical dimensions too. With that, we will be able to recreate a WE 618B faithfully with modern EI Permalloy cores. If one can supply us the WE Permalloy core, that would be even better, closer to the original.
* Clone with new EI-35 Permalloy core, or you supply original WE 618B / similar WE cores
* Recreate following exactly the original WE 618B winding method (we repaired before)
* Potted in square case, bare or framed in standard end bells.
* U$890 / pair (compared to U$6,500 a pair the original)
* Lead time ~4 weeks
