5E3 Master Volume/Effects Loop Opinions

5E3 Master Volume/Effects Loop Opinions
I just completed Bruce's 5E3 kit and it sounds fantastic.  
Has anyone tried a master volume with this amp? What were your results? Does the MV pot take place of one of the volume controls ( I mostly use the bright channel)?  
Also, has anyone tried an effects loop?

I am also interested in these options, I haven't started mine yet, I would like to incorperate these from the get go
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.

Both of these topics were covered in the previous formum. If you access Tom's site at:  
Just scroll through and you will find scematics and a lot of discussion. The discussions start about 1/3 of the way down the page.  
Good luck!
