Chuck Re: another question on tweaking my 18 build
Another good place to change the "feel" of an amp is the filter caps. Smaller values tend to sound more focused and slightly compressed and larger values sound more spanky, broad and percussive.  
I tend to like medium to largish caps (50 to 100 uf) on the main filter cap medium (20 to 47 uf) for the screens and PI and smaller in the preamp. Sometimes even 8 or 10uf on the first preamp stage in high gain projects.
