The thing is, if the 125A is down 1 dB at 150 Hz, it's probably about half power (-3 dB) at the bottom of a 6 string. It would be interesting to know whether the Marshall OEM transformer is available at a reasonable price, or at least how it performs in this regard for comparison.

The reduced low end response will probably give better cut-through
LOL!!! what are we trying to cut through here? The wife doing the dishes or noisy children? :D :D :D

I've read people have used the hammond 125A with success. That ampmaker OT has to be ordered in the UK. I'm from Belgium, ok we're neighbors, but shipping UK-EU is not that great at the moment with all that Brexit thrash...

EDIT: thx for the tip.. I can save some €€ ordering at ampmaker
