    Thanks...I like it a lot.

    Yeah, it does have gain, with the FET boost as much as my SLO50 clone.

    Honestly, I'm not even sure which couplers are the output ones. I know there's couplers between preamp stages, but don't know where the output ones are, but I know the only couplers I changed were in the 3 gain stages.

    As for bottom end, once I installed the NFB pot, I got a lot more so I don't need anything additional.

    I'm also running an ecc81 in V1 to cut down on the noise. The ecc83 was just too noisy for me.

    The ecc81 smooths out and quiets things down.

    I'd like to put a 5751 in V1 and V2 which the gain is in between the ecc81 and ecc83.

    Dinky, I can recommend an EHX 7025EH as a very quiet tube for V1, but can't speak with authority on the tone as the other tubes in the amp were lacklustre.

    Cheers, Steve
