TS-9 Mod Info - Thanks R.G.!
Just a note of thanks to R.G. Keen for great information regarding TS-9 to TS-808 mods. I performed the mods last night, including the op amp and resistors, and it took all of 15 minutes, and made a great difference in tone.  
Thanks again!  
BTW, how much difference would swapping out the caps make?

I agree, his "Technology...." article is awesome. I put polyester film caps in the place of all the non-polarized electros. It made the tone less compressed. Easy enough to try, the opamp was the hard part. mp
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.

Jeff, How do you like the tone of the new fender amp with the TS-9?
