Re: feedback weirdness
You may have to install a small resistor in series with the presence cap, maybe a 1K, to cure the oscillation. Peavey used an electrolytic, 22uf@25V, to isolate the DC from the feedback loop. Note that without the 22uF cap, adjusting the resonance changes the operating point of the PI.

US Patent 5,197,102 covers a resonance control but there is a lot of other stuff going on that doesn't apply to tube amps.
