    Great idea from the other thread.

    Some incredible info has been shared here, finding the right parts we need will be extremely helpful.

    A couple to add...

    For fellow Canadians, Next Gen Guitars, free shipping in Canada for orders over $149.00 CAD
    They use Canada Post and require a signature at delivery.
    They will NOT leave the package due to door step theft.

    You guys have already listed all the vendors I use for components (and a couple more) Except this one:

    https://www.parts-express.com/

    And Eminence speakers site isn't really a vendor, but that's where all the specs and info are so I'll include them here, along with some other speaker sites:

    https://www.eminence.com/

    https://www.tedweber.com/

    https://wgsusa.com/

    And I've been really happy with Edcore transformers when I've used them. I believe they only market direct, so:

    https://www.edcorusa.com/

    And like Eminence speakers, Hammond transformers doesn't direct market but all the info is at their site. I usually buy them at Antique Electronics (tubesandmore link above):

    http://www.hammondmfg.com/5cindex.htm

    I like these guys:

    Tubedepot.com

    Also, these guys were pretty easy to work with:

    Tayda electronics. Not sure the website... Hang on, lemme check:
    Taydaelectronics.com

    In addition to the above. Just out of curiosity, is Hoffman still around & kicking? I've never used then but have felt a desire to in the past...

    Hoffman is scaling back.
    As of now, the web store is still open but he's not carrying some things...

    https://hoffmanamps.com/MyStore/perl...R_ID=!ORDERID!

    Copy/Paste from the Hoffman Forum...

    In September of 2019 I will be 65 years old.
    I started Hoffman Amplifiers in 1993.
    So I have been at this for 25 years.
    I am pretty much ready to work fewer hours.

    I am trying to reduce the number of hours I spend packing up large orders.
    Some large orders can take up to an hour to pack up so that they arrive without any damage.
    If you pack up a deluxe reverb chassis, all the transformers and all the small parts, it's takes a long time to package it correctly so nothing gets damaged in shipment.

    Over the next year I am going to be scaling back some of the items I stock.
    Some items like chassis, transformers, tubes, guitar parts and other slow selling items will be thinned out of inventory.

    I don't mind packing up small orders.
    It is quick and easy to do that.
    It leaves me more time to do other stuff I like to do.
    I imagine I will keep packing up parts orders for as long as it does not cut too much into my fun time.

    My plans are to list links to the items I no longer carry so that people know where to get them.

    The phasing out of items has already begun.
    In the post below this one, I am going to start adding links to the phased out items.
    You can go directly to the source and order these items

    Nice idea.

    Here some for the guys on the other side of the pond, specifically continental Europe:

    https://www.tube-town.net/ttstore/
    Most things for amps, from parts to tolex. Good selection on toroidal PT.

    https://www.musikding.de/
    Less parts than Tube Town, slightly better prices, more pedal oriented.

    https://www.tubeampdoctor.com/
    Quite (in)famous, expensive, but good quality parts and store some oddball valves.

    https://www.banzaimusic.com/
    Again, a little expensive for my taste, but have spares for amps and guitars, the other stores are more builder oriented.

    https://www.tme.eu/gb/
    Components store. Plenty of stores across Europe, more industrial and modern things, but plenty of quality caps and resistors.
    They also sell the Toroyd toroidal OT Real good irons, in my opinion.

    Regards,
    Giampaolo.

    With regard to Digikey, if you are in Canada, make sure you are on the .ca site and have currency set for CDN funds, otherwise you will not get the $8 flat rate overnight shipping option.

    I don't know if I have.?. Weird because I know the company name and logo very well. Maybe? I did peek in and see that they're just a tad less expensive than AES/TAM now for Hammond iron. But I was shocked to see the price has gone up about 25% since the last time I bought Hammond.

    Because I also work on keyboards
    There is https://syntaur.com/ many vintage parts.

    Also Fullcompass.com stocks many parts you can't find anywhere. Like the Line 6 spider valve master volume pot, and various other things that are OEM.
