Hello all, I'm currently building an effects pedal (based on designs at tonepad.com) for my brother for christmas, but while sourcing some of the components I hit a snag. The only place I can find to purchase a 42TM002 Transformer is mouser, and I don't really want to pay 20 euros delivery for a 2 euro transformer. I've tried to find transformers with similar characteristics, but have been unlucky so far. Does anyone know of a suitable replacement for this component, or an alternate source (with cheaper UK postage?)?

The required properties of a possible replacement depend much on the exact function of the part in the circuit, e.g. load and source impedance and if a specific transformer inductance is expected. Similar small transformers are all around in DIY electronic shops, but the said type has a unusual high impedance (high windings count). You should tell which tonepad project you're dealing with.

P.S.: The Farnell part seems to fit exactly the specification, at least in terms of "impedance".
