I'm a novice with mods, am making some tone tweaks to my TW Express clone - trying to tame the gain/clipping and brightness a bit. I've already made good progress by tweaking various resistor values. I want to try adding a Vox style cut control, my question for the amp build experts is this: how important is the location of a cut pot for minimizing noise? Can I put it on the back panel or is that asking for trouble? Experienced advice/suggestions appreciated. My amp is a Ceriatone, here is the layout. I intend to keep the presence as is (and mine has a PPIMV on the front panel next to presence). There is plenty of space on the back panel away from the output section. I'm planning to base the cut on Robinette's layout (I do not intend to attach the pot casing to ground/rail but again appreciate advice on this): Thanks in advance!
