I am looking for a company that is not opposed to winding custom amorphous cobalt/nickel alloy parafeed transformers. Suggestions?

I don't know of anyone who builds with amorphous cobalt/nickel alloy specifically, as that sounds like a rather exotic material indeed. However, MagneQuest, Lundahl and Intact Audio (Dave Slagle) offer both cobalt and high nickel content Permalloy cores.

I can tell you from experience that MaqneQuest's EXO line of parafeed OPTs sound very nice, and are available with cobalt cores. The icing on the cake would be a silver-wound secondary, if they offer silver as an option and you can spend the requisite Mt. Everest size pile of cash. I know Lundahl and Electra Print do offer optional silver windings, but Electra Print will only build parafeed OPTs with M6 cores, which leaves you with Lundahl.
