check out the "6L6's and new OT" post below and you will see the suggestion of replacing the 22uf cathode bypass caps on the three preamp triodes to change the sound of the 5E3. Your 10 watt resistor is mentioned as well. Scott reveals some good info on his amp which was modded by "Bruce Almighty" and I use that title with all respect as Bruce knows his tone!
