Here is a listing of 250 transformers that meet the voltage specs you
requested (or close enough--primary 115/230 dual 12 V secondaries
You'll need to figure the power capabilities and the mounting.
As to the tone controls, I have no opinion other than if it works for
you and sounds good, they it's OK for you. I think formal archival
transfers would want a more rigorous approach which is why most of the
equalizers seem to have fixed settings (up to 12, and there are
different 12 on the two I've looked at).
