Ken fisher master vol. mods

Just wanted to see if anyone here had ever tried the Ken Fisher master vol.
mods?
I used his mods in a few old Marshalls from the 70's when playing out with 50
watt heads in the clubs.
Man those amps sound good.
His mods are the ONLY MODS I would EVER try on these amps.

What does he do? because installing a master volume is a pretty simple mod so I guess there's something more.

There are MANY types of master vol. mods.
Some sound good, some ok, some bad.
Some even change the sound of the amp.
I have used no less than 6 types of master vol. mods myself.
I feel that the Fisher mods work very well and donot change the
sound of the amp.

Its fairly simple.
I use a 100k dule gain pot in the phase inverter section.
You do have to remove 2 resistors but on the old amps (pre '76)
this is not a problem.
As always you have to be sure not to touch the wrong thing in an
open Marshall as the voltage in the filter caps can KILL.
If you know what your doing its fun to work on these amps.
If you don't know what not to touch its best if you don't open the amp up.
If you think this is something you would like to try let me know and I will see
if I can find a copy of the mod and email it to you.
Thanks for the post.

This is also known as the Rich mod on the LPF, after one of the guys that usually goes to Dallas/Arlington and sets up shop there modding Marshalls...
