Crossline or post PI tone controls?

Satamax Crossline or post PI tone controls?
Hi everybody!  
Has anybody tried crossline or post PI tone controls? something like on the right page ?  
Or after a concertina? Post Pi tone controls, and a master volume, where a concertina would be the input valve, then one gaiin stage on each side, tone controls, another gain stage or two , volume control to power valves?  
Thanks a lot and best regards.

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.

    Vox and Matchless have used cross-line tone controls (but not the same circuits as in the pages you posted).  
    It is like a good global tone control to compensate for the sound and response of the speakers or the output tubes.
