I have a few Edcores and I prefer them over Hammond.
I think one the reasons that Hammonds are popular is because they make so many "universal" models to choose from. If nothing else, it is good marketeering.
But what I like most about Edcore is that have a large variety of medols to choose from. Most are designed for use in tightly controlled applications, without much wiggle room. Perhaps this is considered an oversight by some DIYer's, but I think that Edcore considers maximum efficiency more important than the universal "one size fits all - master of none" approach. For instance, on their OT's, it seems that most are designed for very specific applications, which is the reason they offer such a wide variety of models to choose from. The vast majority do not offer all three taps on the secondary for impedence dicking, in order that they may wind as much copper as space will allow - while at the same time insuring that the entire coil is put to use.
It seems that way to me. YMMV.
