Fender messed up with the EC Tremolux. They already had an EXISTING, proven and good performing circuit in the 5G9 Tremolux. They should have...
Woah, EL34s in a Princeton? WTH?
Actually it would be somewhat costly. To do it right and proper would take a new PT and OT.
Better to just get an amp that is already 40 Watts.
Lose the P12R. Weak. Inefficient. Thin.
You cant tell the condition of a cap by just looking at it.
If you are running only a single supply, you have to make a half Vcc reference for the op amp inputs. You cant just ground that non inverting...
Don't buy GT.
I tried a V30 in my DR. I found it loud and middy with a weak low end. I replaced it with a vintage P12 N and never looked back. The P12N...

No, not in DRRIs. In real vintage Deluxes.
Seen them blow and wipe out the screen resistors. More than once. Had to fix the mess. Garbage....

One of the best 12AY7 tubes is the GE 6072A. Real smooth and sweet sound.
One if the worst 6V6s is the EH. Garbage. There is good documentation...
