It still has the factory original Mullards in the preamp. They were tested by the tech who did the recap for me a few months ago, and he said they are pretty much as-new.
In hindsight, I don't think any additional mods are required ... I was following conventional logic when trying to dial in a good tone, which is generally to set everything to noon and tweak from there. Doing that with treble, middle and presence made it sound still too bright. And 'moderate' tweaking didn't seem to be able to tame that. So in frustration I set everything except for bass to zero, and suddenly found the high end and upper mids were then way closer to what I expected! A bit more tweaking on the presence got me there.
In the end, I landed on the following:
Normal & Bright Volumes bridged with a y-adapter
Normal at noon (any more gets a bit too muddy in the low end)
Bright at full
Bass at 3:00 (ie, 3/4 of max)
Treble at 7:00 (ie, off)
Middle at 7:00 (ie, off)
Presence at 3:00 (ie, 3/4 of max)
And that's working very well now! Getting me a real nice Malcolm Young crunch at drummer levels; and pushing it with a Hardwire CM-2 overdrive with level set to noon and gain set to zero gets me to classic rock and 80's tones.
@Mark - thanks for the suggestion - I don't think it will go anywhere though, that blue wire is a 14ga solid core, it's very stiff, and the solder joint is pretty good between it and the resistor. But in the interests of safety, perhaps a bit of heatshrink is a good idea.
Otherwise, I'm pretty happy to leave it the way it is now, I haven't really done any major intrusive mods that should affect its value, and if wanted back to factory, it's basically just removing the extra cap and 2 resistors at V2.
