I'm building a 50w Plexi, and I'm considering adding some of the switching options like Ceriatone's all access model. I'm curious which of these options you'd consider useful, and which aren't?

Tube/SS Rectifier Switch
Split/Shared Cathode Switch
Tonestack Switch
V1B Cap Switch
Bright Cap Switch
Presence Cap Switch
NFB Switch
Tonestack Bypass Switch
V2A Bypass Cap Switch
PPIMV
½ Power Switch
Buffered Effects Loop
Built-In Channel Jumper

I may be old fashioned, but I really prefer as simple a circuit pathway as possible.

Depends a lot on your playstyle, how you plan to use it, and what you’ll be using it for.

I could personally see value in a 1/2 power switch, depending on where you’ll be playing. But nothing else, really. For tube/SS rectifier, just swap between a tube and a SS rectifier plug-in if you want.
