Beesneez 6.5:1 Toroidal Audio Transformer

This transformer is a BeesNeez 6.5:1 toroidal audio transformer, handmade in Australia. The core for this transformer we make from Ni78 permalloy and encase this in a 0.2mm plastic toroidal casing to protect the windings. The benefits of using a toroidal transformer are many, though with benefits come difficulties. If a toroidal transformer is made well, its specifications are simply unbeatable, as the entire core is encased by the windings leaving no area open for leakage. However, the core must be large enough to ensure it doesn’t saturate too early. Our core size, though quite large, still make a reasonably compact toroidal transformer that is perfect for this microphone. Its characteristics are very smooth with no frequency ring or non-linear response within the listening curve. We use pure copper to wind these toroidals and each one is painstakingly wound by our BeesNeez staff in our BeesNeez factory.

This transformer really shines on tube microphones that feature low amplification factor tubes. Such as the E14, EF12, EF800 6AK5, EF95, 6SJ7 and 5840
