Snubber Capacitors

I came across this article about snubber capacitors¬†on the web last night and it got me wondering. I use a snubber capacitor across the primary windings of the output transformer of Little One but I can’t remember if I did any critical evaluation of the amp’s sound before I decided to use a capacitor this way. I certainly don’t use a capacitor and resistor in series as is done in the article.

Little One sounds good the way it is so I’m not in any hurry to change the circuit. There isn’t much information on the web about snubber capacitors used across output transformers so I’m going to have to find some time (somehow) to investigate the effect they have unless someone can provide details.
