Right! No feedback with a reduced preamp output ROCKS!  
However, on my Soulkicker Jr. amps, (a hot rodded SE tweed Princeton), I also hold the triode section's 1k5 cathode resistor (bypassed with a 2.2uF to 4.7uF cap) up from ground with a 130 ohm resistor and then apply some NFB voltage into the junction of the 1k5 and 130 resistors, very much like a BF Princeton Reverb and it works great.  
This can be made switchable for a looser/tight sound.
