Find and google the part number on it. See if you can find the original somewhere. Other than that, it's $50.

I’d just go with a common Fender transformer. They both use 12AT7 for reverb, so the impedances could be close. Whats wrong with the original reverb driver transformer?

Oh wow, so it definitely was the transformer as the cause of the issue.

Do you still have it? You might be able to have it repaired....

I see your point and have thought that. However, the Mercury is a custom part you can’t easily get anywhere else, and its a drop in replacement. I’d be happy enough with the Fender though, which is easily available from several different companies and has been cloned over and over. Mercury are very good qaulity too and in my experience very well made compared to other brands. A common part, I wouldn’t particularily go Mercury unless I was after physical appearance.
