Wire Gauge Used In OP & PTs?
« on: October 26, 2022, 04:40:04 AM »
Which wire gauge sizes would  be used in the actual construction of  tube guitar amp push pull output transformers and power transformers?
Thanks.

You really could find a super wide range of wire sizes in these parts, especially since you can wind multiple wires on the same winding at the same time, so if you need something like a 16 gauge wire size on a winding, you could opt instead to wind four 22 gauge wires at the same time instead to the same effect.
