Re: brown trem (was Re: Fender brownface tonestack)
    What about using IRF820 MOSFETs instead of at least some of the 12A_7 tubes? Mike Donovan had drawn up some circuits using them that is on my schematics page and I was thinking that it would be cool to keep the same basic architecture as the original, but just replace some of the glass with silicone...
