Marshall Anniversary 6100 or 6100 LM, opinions please

Marshall Anniversary 6100 or 6100 LM, opinions please
I'm about to change my 6100LM from 5881 back to EL34. I'd like to mod the lead (third) channel back to 6100 specs, that means less gain. But before I get out the pcb (a pain in the ...), I'd like to get some opinions on original 6100 lead channel compared to the 6100LM (LM = Lead modification).  
I need less buzz, more definition and singing.

I don't have a schematic for that model but if you'd email it to I'd be happy to help you take the "buzz" out of your tone! (ha, ha)  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Right, get it from Steve Ahola's page. The mod is trivial, and it involves changing the voltage divider after the 2nd cathode follower, piecce of cake.
