Also, I posted on VintageAmp that I am very interested in purchasing a 30w Triad Power Transformer for the 4x10 Bassman. Currently, my 1954 Fender Bassman amp has a 30w Chicago Standard Transformer that is 1954 era correct (I believe). After much research, I understand that Fender used transformers in the early 1950s from the following companies: Triad Transformer, Better Coil, Chicago Standard Transformer, StanCor Transformers, Woodward-Schumacher Transformers.
Since the Output Transformer and the Choke are original Triads, getting a 30w Triad would be my first choice.

Per your current comments, I suppose I have a "nice old amp". If that is the case, then before last month, I suppose I simply had an "old" amp. But, besides you, I am excited and most everyone in contact with me is excited and willing to help and share. Yes, I write more words than you or the average poster. That is just me ~ who I am. Differences make the world go 'round
As mentioned several times, I have gone from attempting to get an idea as to what I needed to do to sell the "nice old amp", to being on a mission to get the amp period correct, keep and play it. I have and will continue to do research to my heart's content. I will be asking questions from the stand point of a new Bassman hobbyist. I have been having a general blast the past month and the past week on The Vintage Amp Forum. Thank you for being "softer" and a bit less skeptical Take care. Toppscore.

and the differences between the 5D6 (vs) 5B6,5E6 & 5F6 Bassmans. That would be cool.
P-Dwag, for my current post, I am simply on a journy discovering, sharing & communicating about the 5D6 Bassman amp's history and the various possibilites of owning it, playing it, making it period correct with two parts, and suggestions towards the history of Fender's 1954 5D6 Bassman's parts used during the two months of hand built production. This is the subject I enjoy the most ~ that Fender could not & would not have producted & designed all eleven known 5D6's 100% exactly the same way, . . . . .
much less have all the 1954 175(+) 5D6 Bassmans built & designed to be exactly 100% the same way. Toppscore
