Hi, I finished my first amp project and Iīll begin with my sencond one. My first was a quasi SLO (50 watts). With Warren Haynes mod. Now I need advices for my second one. It will be just like my first, but adding triode/pentode switch, 6l6/el34 switch, and.. Here is where I need your help.. 100 watts instead of 50W (opinions pleeease!) any other mod? any other feature? keep the original loop?  
Advices are welcome!  
Here is my first one finished:  
And now, a word from our sponsors:

Don't know about SLOs but 100 watt Marshalls always sounded better to my ears than 50 watters. I think it was because of the larger transformer. More iron gives better sound -- at least sometimes.

Hi, thanks for your interest!  
I read that Warren Haynes(Allman Bros & Govīt Mule), asked for a mod to add some bass at low volume on the lead channel. It is labeled on the SLO schematic (the corrected one) , itīs a 0,001uf cap on the OD pot. I use it a lot when I change the gtr from a strat to les paul.
