I just learned recently that Nik can add effects loop to amps so I'll use my eh holy grail cathedral to supply my verb needs.

Actually I am thinking of adding 2 effects loops so that the 1 will be a dedicated verb.

I have seen many upgrade kits for amps. 
Usually cheaper amps that have cheaper components.
But I have not heard the amazing difference in tone, from before and after youtube posts. 

Now it may be a limitation of youtube, but I would think that the companies them selves would sell the deluxe model with the upgrades if it made that much of a difference, that any lay person could say: oh yes that sound so much better.  I mean Fender sells US Strats and Mexican Strats and ppl say the US Strat is so much better but it also cost so much more. 

If I can take a design and sell the ok version for a lower price point and make a profit, and the wow version at a wow mark up, from a business angle I would do it. 
And so would they.  The real answer is that the cheap models can only be improved upon so much with these upgrades. 
They will never sound as good as an amp designed first with the objective to sound fantastic and considerations for cost placed as a secondary concern.   

So Nik build amps with what ever components you choose, because they sound very good to my ears, and I have no idea what putting in the magic components in them would do,
but I trust that you do,
and if you could make your amps even better by doing component swaps you
3  Custom amp building, Prototypes and other amps / Mods and Tweaks / 5F6-A with effects out, and an extra tube for overdrive. on: November 17, 2011, 03:36:18 AM
I had the chance to play a 60's bassman and love the tone.
I would love to have that same tone with effects send return added and an 12ax7 for overdrive. 
I like the clean tone, and sound I got using a tube overdrive pedal was very sweet.
I loved that tone. 
The set up was in a pawn shop and they wanted an insane amount for it.  But the way the guy had it set up, was really an awesome tone. 
I don't remember which pedal it was, but was more impressed with the clean tone anyway. 

Does anybody know of an  bassman clone that already has this setup?

Or Nik can you make this kind of mod to your 5F6-A?
