ToT + Resonance
#1
I'm now in the planning stages of building a new amp head from scratch.  Plenty of chassis room to work with.  This will be my first LPSP,  I am looking forward to that.  Plan now is the to build the power supply, PA and preamp from ToT but with eyelet cards. 

"thunderous smooth" described in TUT caught my attention - I do not like bright tones or hard distortion.  Would the Active resonance presence circuit, fig 6-34 of TUT, work well in the ToT PA?  I'd use both 12AX7 tubes in the EQ network shown.  Would it work following C1 of the PA, fig 6-2 of ToT, with an added coupling cap?  0.47u?  Would a a larger OPT be a little smoother than the 1608 in the circuit?  I have a single 6lb 6.6k OPT that I could use.  6V6, 5881, 6Pi3C-E and 6L6 all are to be tried.  I will add a triode/pentode switch.  I plan to use the bias supply as described in ToT . 


I want to lay out the circuit cards and build this up from scratch.   I mostly play rhythm, the other guitarist I play with has a bright setup and I try to keep things lower (tone wise) and slightly clean to over-driven.  P-90s are on the guitar.

Thanks for any input from anyone, anywhere here.
